There has been concern that new General Medical Services (GMS) contract ignores interpersonal aspects of care and threatens continuity of care. We report the results of a survey of GPs in England and Wales that sought to determine how the new GP contract is perceived to affect the provision of continuity of care. The GPs reported that they would be significantly less likely to be able to provide personal continuity of care and management continuity in future. In contrast, the GPs reported that informational continuity across the primary–secondary care interface would be significantly more likely to improve in future.
