The author offers insight on the effects of the proposed health bill in Great Britain on the role of general practitioners (GP). The author urges the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) to make use of its members and staff and to be vocal about the evidence the bill would lead to poorer health outcomes, for doctors to be equipped with necessary skills, and for medical students to learn more about healthcare systems and management. Emphasis is given on the need to undertake more research to better understand the impact of potential changes.
