  • Understanding value in healthcare – the key to successful new care models

    18 October 2016

    Organisations are starting to work together in new ways to transform health and social care through the adoption of new care models. This workshop is aimed at those involved in the development of integrated services that deliver the best possible value in terms of the needs of the individual, the impact on overall population health and use of resources.

    This workshop on 10 January in Birmingham will be of interest to commissioners and providers of primary care, community services and acute care, particularly those starting to plan services based on MCP, PACS and accountable care organisation (ACO) models.

  • General practice development and new care models feature in latest Commissioning Excellence

    20 September 2016

    The September issue of Commissioning Excellence looks at the aims of the GP Forward View and considers what PCC is doing to support the immediate and longer term development needs of practices. Elsewhere in this 12-page issue, we report on the challenges of commissioning new care models in the light of the high-profile collapse of an £800m contract for community services, on what we stand to learn from international care systems and on the economic and on the opportunity to improve the use of NHS services by involving patients in shared decision making.

  • Putting the forward view into practice

    1 September 2016

    The GP Forward View acknowledges the need both to put greater resources into general practice and to target them at a range of needs, from urgent support to “vulnerable” practices to practical help for those in collaborative ventures. PCC provides support along this continuum, with a diagnostic and tailored development programme for practices at risk of failing as well as support for collaborations – from reaching initial consensus to development of long-term plans. For example, we supported the East Lancs Union of GPs to agree its mission, vision and purpose, develop its identity and get practices signed up to the federation. Later we supported the development of the board resulting in a refocused vision and a strategic plan. Carole Martin, operational director, said: “Working together means stepping out of your comfort zone. PCC helped us to appreciate what we needed to understand, but also provided the confidence we needed to make it happen.”
