  • Improve your facilitation skills

    20 April 2016

    Facilitation skills have a positive impact on meetings, negotiations and relationships, which are essential for better commissioning and performance management. Confident, capable facilitators are an asset to any organisation.

    The intermediate level workshop provides an opportunity for delegates to practice and experience their learning in a safe environment. It is a follow up for those who attended the introductory session, and for those wanting to improve their current facilitation skills and confidence.

    The training will focus on role play and learning from experience by giving delegates the chance to plan and facilitate a scenario and to feedback in the roles of a facilitator, co-facilitator and observer. The workshop is on 6 July in Leeds, 19 July in London and 9 November in Birmingham.

  • Primary medical services – effective decision making

    15 March 2016

    On 1 April, 52 more CCGs assumed delegated responsibility for the commissioning and management of primary medical services. If not handled correctly, any changes agreed in relation to primary medical contracts can be time consuming and costly. In the worst case, poorly informed decisions could be open to challenge.

    PCC has more than a decade of experience providing advice to commissioners on the application and appropriate management of primary medical contracts. Our advice supports confident decision-making and helps to prevent unnecessary recourse to legal advice.

    This event on 3 May in London, 4 May in Manchester, 24 May in Leeds and 25 May in Birmingham covers the key aspects of the contracts and how to apply the necessary changes. It also highlights the guidance and regulations required to manage and govern these contracts properly.

  • Premises funding and decision making

    23 February 2016

    The NHS will require the development of existing and new premises to deliver better services more efficiently. Premises and estates strategy is a major concern for vanguards and Better Care programmes, which need to develop the infrastructure to support their service integration and transformation plans.

    This workshop, for CCGs, NHS England teams and local authorities, will help you to understand the procurement, development and management of the primary medical and community care infrastructure you need to deliver existing services and to enable new care models.

    It is a must for strategic and operational premises leads, transformation leads, commissioners and members of local estates forums. The workshop will be held on 10 May in Leeds, 11 May in Birmingham, 17 May in Manchester and 18 May in London.
