How to build effective teams in primary care


Teamworking is fundamental to the future of general practice. Practices are coming together at scale in primary care networks and new roles are being introduced, creating multidisciplinary and multi-agency teams. Making these teams function effectively is a complex task. King’s Fund published a guide with insights from research, policy analysis and leadership practice.

What are the fundamentals of effective teams?

  • Effective information-sharing systems
