  • Support for resilience

    23 March 2017

    Primary care leaders seeking to strengthen practices at risk from workforce, demand and other pressures can access funding from NHS England’s resilience programme, part of the General Practice Forward View. The resilience programme recognises that many practices are already struggling to cope with existing workload for a variety of reasons, and that others are looking for long-term solutions in the face of uncertainties about the supply of GPs, funding, running costs, premises and related issues.

    PCC is working with practices at all points on the spectrum from the most vulnerable to those interested in building resilience through collaboration, to provide the necessary infrastructure and scale to support effective sharing of resources, workforce development and expansion of services both to serve the care needs of local populations and to secure the future income practices need for long-term sustainability and growth. To find out how we are working with practices and primary care commissioners to stabilise vulnerable practices and to build resilient locality based hubs, contact PCC at VPSupport@pcc-cic.org.uk

  • Primary care home under the spotlight

    9 February 2017

    General practice is under pressure to work together “at scale” to ease workload pressure, share skills and develop resilience. The primary care home (PCH) is increasingly appealing to those who see the logic in collaboration but want some say over how far and how fast they go. The latest edition of Commissioning Excellence talks to GP leaders of PCH rapid test sites. It also features top tips for service change and commissioning case studies.

  • Going with the grain: new models for general practice

    24 January 2017

    GPs working at scale are central to the plan to transform the NHS. But before general practice can save the NHS it has to save itself.

    NHS leaders increasingly acknowledge that large-scale new care models (MCP and PACS) will take time. Meanwhile general practice cannot wait for solutions to problems that can only be solved by finding new ways to work – and better ways to work together.

    The new focus is on practices working together at a locality level, collaborating over a population of 30,000 to 50,000.

    At this event on 28 March in Leeds we provide the opportunity for general practices and commissioners responsible for supporting primary care transformation to learn from those who already collaborating, including Primary Care Home rapid test sites.

    Confirmed speakers include chief executive of Haverstock Healthcare Dr Mike Smith and Dr Stewart Smith from St Austell Healthcare.
