Reports on the findings of an educational study where a set of alliances were forged between individual GPs, local medical committees, educational groups in universities and health care managers. Although the range of educational activities undertaken was enormous, the key to the programme's success was an alliance centred on the education-service partnership. It is alliances like these which the authors believe will help revolutionise the education and training of GPs in the future.
