Will this proposed model of care put an end to the current MDTs held within practices?

No. Virgin Care see MDTs as hugely beneficial and they are a significant element within their model, particularly supporting high risk patients. Virgin’s preferred model is to ensure that each MDT is supported by appropriate colleagues from Pharmacy, Social care and Mental Health.

Virgin’s current understanding is that there is some variation across Bath and North East Somerset and they will be reviewing how these currently function so they can support best practice and provide an equitable service for all.
