Engine Room: Developing General Practice at Scale in Gateshead

October 2, 2017



Gateshead GP Transformation Team has for the last two years supported all Gateshead practices to develop their knowledge and understanding of at-scale working. More recently, the team has commenced a phase of focussed activity with a group of 20 GPs, practice managers and practice nurses in a task and finish ‘Engine Room’ which will, between now and the end of September 2017, produce a clear and specific proposal to for working at scale in Gateshead. 




Engine Room objectives are to:


  • Identify tangible clinical benefits of working at-scale - being clear about outcomes for patients, staff and system impact


  • Consider available structure options for an at-scale organisation - including the business, legal and financial implications


  • Consider and understand any human resources impact


  • Appraise options and conclude with recommendations for business owners


  • Develop a specific proposal and recommendation which can be presented to Gateshead GP practices in Autumn 2017


The project consists of four work streams focussing on developments in 3 clinical areas - Care of Complex Patients, Transfers of Care, and Urgent Care & Access. The fourth work stream will examine Structure, Governance and Organisational Development.
