NHS England has a legal duty to fund the general practitioner (GP) services required to meet the reasonable needs of the population, both in old and new towns.

On 1 July, NHS England, together with Public Health England, launched an initiative to shape strong new communities that promote health and wellbeing, prevent illness and keep people independent.

The initiative is expected to include development of flexible health and care infrastructure that enables integration of GP services with other health and care provision.
