  • Based on six case study CCGs and their partner organisations this research seeks to understand enablers and barriers to implementing a policy of GP leadership in the NHS. 
  • The research found that GPs are making an important contribution as leaders of health service improvement and redesign, but there are significant professional and political barriers to them optimising a leadership role.
