Abstract

General Practitioners at the Deep End, by Prof. Graham Watt, is the latest in the College's Occasional Papers series. This important paper looks at the work of front-line GPs in the 100 most deprived practice populations in Scotland. Although offering no short-term solutions to the problem of health inequality in deprived areas, the paper gives a raft of measures to break through the barriers created by, first, the inverse care law and, second, the dysfunctional links between practices and other services. <p></p> This seminal paper has vital messages for primary care in the UK and globally, and should form the basis of discussion of the future of primary care for primary care teams, Associates-in-Training and politicians.
