NHS services must be outsourced to private firmsAn inquiry into UK's general practice's quality states that people who are seriously unwell should be referred to specialists quickly by family doctors, drugs should be prescribed in an appropriate manner and people should be told more about long-term and multiple health conditions.

Sir Ian Kennedy, an expert on the law and ethics of medicine had chaired the inquiry that was commissioned by the King's Fund thinktank.

According to the report, there is no problem when it comes to the quality of healthcare in the UK but there is a wide gap between practices and in an attempt to learn more from each other by professionals and doctors, more has to be shared between them.

There has to be more speed when it comes to GP practices and specialists present at GP surgeries. It has however been added, "General practice will be able to deliver high-quality, cost-effective care only by operating on an industrial scale that makes full use of data and information to drive continuous quality improvements."

In the whole of England, there are about 32,000 GPs and 72,000 practice staff in practices that are more than 8,200.
