The College should now plan its future policies according to the following six principles: (1) Preventive and therapeutic services must be integrated. (2) Such action falls naturally to neighbourhood doctors. (3) A positive practical approach to health should replace the traditional disease dominated emphasis in medical training. (4) There are important manpower implications for general practice, both for doctors and their staff. (5) The need to alter the life-style of patients means that practical preventive medicine increasingly means achieving change in human behaviour. (6) The Royal College of General Practitioners should increasingly emerge as the voice of progress by publicizing successful developments in general practices and by campaigning for public support for these principles.
