  • Focus on general practice at the heart of local system change

    13 June 2017

    Workforce development and collaboration are the twin themes of the latest issue of Commissioning Excellence, which highlights how local leaders are promoting the development of general practice at scale both to deliver the kinds of services communities demand and the resilience GP practices need. This issue also focuses on the clinical pharmacists in general practice programme, which is bringing clear benefits to GPs and their patients.

  • The Confident Commissioner

    22 May 2017

    Commissioning has changed – with the move towards accountable care systems, the challenges to secure integrated services, the advent of multi-speciality community providers and primary and acute care systems the skills needed by the commissioner have shifted.

    PCC’s confident commissioner learning sets guide commissioners to explore areas such as population health, using contracts more innovatively and being the most effective negotiators and influencers. The programme allows participants to lead the discussion on areas that matter to them, guided by expert input. Every session has input from an expert topic lead, providing up to date, in depth knowledge to support delegates to become the commissioners of the future.

    The programme starting on 10 August in Birmingham consists of eight half-day sessions over a period of nine months, allowing time between sessions for reflection and further study; a closed network is set up for participants to share the latest in commissioning developments and resources throughout the programme. Subscribing organisations can access this programme as part of their event package.

  • Get your premises plans on track

    16 May 2017

    As GP organisations increasingly come together to deliver services at scale, a common sticking point is the availability of premises suitable to underpin service delivery. Commissioners of GP led services, GP provider organisations and broader integrated service providers need to navigate the transition from the current estate and ownership models towards a system of estate management and provision that is fit for the future. This is a complex area and there are no easy answers, but PCC has significant knowledge in this area and can provide expert advice to support strategic planning and operational management. Working with PCC's experts can remove some of the unknowns and save you valuable time on your journey to a viable future estate. We can provide one to one advice, attend local meetings or provide local workshops as required. Please contact enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk with the subject line “Premises” for more information.
