The latest issue of Management in Practice features a wide range of content highlighting the 70th anniversary of the NHS, including a feature examining how general practice has changed since the introduction of the health service in 1948.

Tracing the evolution of general practice from the one-doctor surgeries operating out of private homes that dominated the early days of the NHS, via the emergence of  the practice manager role in the 1980s and through to today, the feature throws light on the past and present of general practice.

Our #NHS70 content also includes details from practices on how they are celebrating the anniversary, and quotes from practice managers about what they would gift the health service as it turns 70.

In non-anniversary related news, features in this issue of Management in Practice include an examination of whether or not hospital trusts running practices is the future in a healthcare sector where finding GPs wiling to become practice partners is becoming increasingly challenging.

This issue also features a closer look at what becoming a super practice really means and a profile of Richmond Road Medical Centre, which won General Practice Team of the Year at the General Practice Awards 2017, and more.
