Why we should consider patient registration and capitation

It is always a privilege when you’re invited into your patients’ homes to see how they’re living and how it is affecting their health. Visiting another country to see how GPs there work is no different.

I am currently in the Netherlands visiting GPs as part of my PhD on managing obesity.

The country is consistently a top performer in health outcomes, primary care research and patient satisfaction. 

In short, it is a wealthy country that puts great emphasis on primary care.
