Changes in primary care and difficulties in recruiting general practitioners in some parts of the UK are leading to innovations in interprofessional service provision, such as nurses taking increased clinical responsibility and using core teams with mixed skills. Effective teamwork is crucial for success. This study tested the hypothesis that the introduction of new services in a general practice increases team functioning in those providing care. Effects on patient satisfaction are reported elsewhere (Haynes et al., 2000).
