Where are we headed?

What can be done?

Professor Martin Roland directs the Cambridge Centre for Health Services Research (CCHSR) (, a joint research centre between the University of Cambridge and RAND Europe. He was Professor of General Practice in the University of Manchester for 18 years and was a practising GP for 35 years. In 2009, he moved to the Chair of Health Services Research at the University of Cambridge.

In 2015 Professor Roland chaired a Commission on the Future Primary Care Workforce which was established by the Secretary of State for England. The Commission’s report, published in 2015 includes recommendations for an expanded multi-disciplinary primary care workforce, expansion of GP federations and networks to enable general practice to operate at larger scale, closer relationships with specialists, and expanded IT links between primary care, community care and specialists.
