Releasing time for care

As part of the General Practice Forward View NHS England is collecting and sharing examples of ways practices around the country are managing their workload through working smarter, not harder.

We have grouped them into ten areas, the 10 High Impact Actions to release time for care. These are all ways of working that have been found to simultaneously release clinician time and improve care for patients.

How to use this site

Here you will find resources gathered from GP practices around England. They include short case studies, evidence summaries and presentations, grouped together in each of the 10 High Impact Actions.

Please feel free to download, share and reuse these.

The site is created as a discussion forum so that you can also:

  • ask questions about how others have implemented this innovation
  • share your own experiences, challenges and successes
  • suggest additional resources that NHS England or others could gather 

Reading and downloading items is entirely public, but you need to register to post a question or comment. This is free - just click the link at the top of every page. 

What else is available?

The General Practice Forward View announced actions at national level to reduce pressure and increase resources in general practice. It also announced a three year £30 million national development programme linked with additional investment of £96m (£45M to support the training of reception and clerical staff to play a greater role in navigation of patients and handling clinical paperwork to free up GP time, £6M practice manager development and £45M to support the uptake of online consultation systems.)

This programme is intended to support practices in implementing their choice of the 10 High Impact Actions and building capabilities for the future of primary care. Groups of practices can submit an expression of interest in hosting their own Time for Care programme here
