One of the London Health Commission's key recommendations was to promote and support GPs working in networks. I understand from the Healthy London Partnership that 57 'at scale' organisations, largely networks of practices, now provide coverage for 83% of the population of London. These 'at scale' providers are being supported to develop in maturity so that they can provide services at scale. A toolkit has been developed to support providers and commissioners, and a number of London wide events have been held to facilitate the sharing and spreading of innovation and best practice.
