A 2017  UK  study showed that  with high levels of continuity of care  resulted in 12.49% fewer  hospital admissions and in Holland  low levels of continuity of care was associated with increased  mortality. Traditionally high levels of continuity of care have  usually been with  a particular GP but similar  benefits at  lesser level  seem to be associated with the same group of practitioners in the same practice possibly due to shared long term  records.
