I hope many GP practices in Derby City and Derbyshire County benefit from the GPTF, it realises its ambition to build bridges between vision and reality and proactively supports change with the backing of the project commissioners, partners and stakeholders.

I wish to take this opportunity to thank Health Education England working across East Midlands, for the allocation of funding in support of the GPTF Project, Derbyshire. My colleagues in the GPTAG for their project endorsement and most of all, my project colleagues Claire Leggett and Claire Petchey for their part in helping get the GPTF Project off the ground and managing and administering it towards success. Finally, the ongoing support from my GP colleagues at Derby and Derbyshire LMC, in particularly Dr John Grenville, for the freedom to act and establish the GPTF Project, Derbyshire.

I wish the GPTF and the GPTF Project Team all the best facilitating change with GP practices in Derby City and Derbyshire County with this new way of working – working together to release time, share intelligence and seek solutions together!
