  • Putting primary care networks into practice: form and function

    4 April 2019

    Primary care networks (PCNs) promise to change the way GP services are delivered. They have a central role in meeting the NHS Long Term Plan’s commitment to deliver better integrated local services that bring together primary care, community services, social care and the voluntary sector.

    The GP contract and the payment mechanism for PCNs are both now in the public domain, but where do we go from here? With PCNs expected to be covering the country and able to start providing services from 1 July, this event on 29 May in London and 30 May in Manchester provides an opportunity to take stock and start planning in earnest.

    Book before 1 May and receive 20% off the full delegate price.

  • The state-backed indemnity scheme: what it means in practice

    27 March 2019

    Rising indemnity costs have been seen as a key factor in the escalating GP crisis, causing many GPs to reduce the sessions they work or quit the profession altogether.

    After years of complaints about the issue from general practice the government has finally responded. The announcement of changes to the GP contract for 2019/20 was accompanied by the news that a state-backed indemnity scheme would be introduced in April 2019 covering all general practice, including out of hours services.

    GPs are expected to welcome the new scheme, but they need to know what it will and will not cover – for example non-NHS private work. This workshop on 26 June in London and 18 July in Leeds is led by a lawyer from health sector legal specialists Hill Dickinson.

  • Huge response to CQC readiness events

    7 March 2019

    After a huge response to our offer of local events to prepare practices for CQC inspection, we have been contacted by a number of practices and CCGs to see if we can run these locally for groups of practices. We have scheduled dates for the first events in Bristol on 11 June and in Leeds on 19 June . We are considering other dates and locations so practices and CCGs interested in running local events are invited to continue to register expressions of interest at enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk. Please remember to include your contact details and nearest large town to assist us in planning.
