In this John Fry Fellowship Lecture, Professor Richard Saltman offers an overview of what seems to be changing in primary care and general practice across western Europe. He then moves on to discuss the credibility of GPs and asks whether GPs or primary care should be responsible for steering the health care system - the "driver's seat" of the title.
