Healthcare reform and new technology will mean the provision of primary care services will be radically different in 10 years, practice managers agreed at the MiP London conference yesterday.

At the beginning of his keynote presentation, Dr Kieran Sweeney, a GP and senior medical lecturer, asked the audience of several hundred practice managers to give a show of hands to indicate how they felt primary care would change in a decade.

Study comparing primary and secondary care minor procedures finds general practice is "not safe"

The quality of minor surgery carried out in general practice is not as high as that carried out in hospital, according to a study report in the latest Health Technology Assessment Journal.

The study measured the quality of dermatological procedures and ingrowing toenails by wound appearance and by satisfaction with the care and safety of surgery.

Wound appearance was significantly better in the hospital group as was the ability of the doctors to achieve complete excision of malignancies.
