    • Most practices have taken time to visit the resources or invite them into the practice.
    • Improved relationships and knowledge will increase the use of these resources.
    • Time is required to develop and update the practice directories of resources, how can this be sustained.
  • 13. “ LINKS” Project.
    • How can these links between GP practices and local resources be strengthened?
    • Education role for Practice Staff?
    • Provide Link workers across larger areas?
    • Provide ability for community resources to make their information more readily available to GP practices via……………ALISS ?
