Dr Mairead Murphy and Prof Chris Salisbury talk about continuity of care. It is already known that relational continuity of care (seeing the same GP over time) is valued by patients with long-term conditions. This qualitative study identifies that patients believe that relational continuity facilitates having a GP who knows their history, gives consistent advice, takes responsibility and action, and trusts and respects them.
