  • 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.

  • Integrated care systems - practical steps for primary care

    5 March 2019

    The NHS Long Term Plan puts primary care at the heart of plans for integrated care systems (ICS). Primary care networks will be the delivery vehicles for community health services that bring together general practice working at scale with other local care organisations.

    Primary care networks will be underpinned by a new GP network contract and funding settlement that guarantees £2.8bn in additional income for general practice over the next five years, but how will these entities evolve and how do they fit within the broader context of ICS?

    This workshop on 23 April in Manchester and 15 May in Birmingham brings together commissioners, GP practices and others involved in shaping emerging integrated care systems.

    We will hear from a leading lawyer about how existing primary care contracts, new GP network contracts and alliance contracts can be used to enable integrated services.

    A speaker from NHS Dudley CCG will share learning from their journey towards integrated care, underlining the importance of making primary care full partners in the change process.

    Dr Mike Smith, a GP partner with experience of leading a successful GP federation, will give a frank account of what working at scale really means for primary care.

    The focus of the workshop will be on the practical steps delegates need to take now, considering the obstacles they are likely to face, the opportunities presented by new ways of working and the critical success factors for evolving integrated care services.

  • Correspondence management

    18 February 2019

    GP practices that have got to grips with correspondence management have realised impressive savings in GP time and increased the job satisfaction of clerical teams. This half-day workshop on 9 May in Manchester and 25 June in Birmingham shows you how it’s done.

    Practices receive hundreds of items of correspondence each week. Up to 60% of this could be managed by the clerical team without involving a GP.

    The savings can be impressive. A case study on the NHS England website looked at the example of a practice with a 13,000 population, which managed to save each of its five GPs around an hour and a half a day - the equivalent of a day a week - by redesigning correspondence workflows. NHS England estimated the cost saving at £20,000.
