  • What does population health management have to do with PCNs?

    11 July 2019

    You might think that population health is what general practice and primary care networks are all about, but the term population health management has a specific meaning. It is about using all the data about the health of a population to anticipate health trends not just to plan treatment but to put in place measures to prevent illness. While it’s early days for PCNs, taking this holistic view of the health of their populations and adopting measures to improve local health outcomes will be one of the vital roles they play in future.

  • Support to develop a successful primary care network

    11 July 2019

    Primary care networks are now up and running but they need to ensure that the initial burst of energy and enthusiasm can be sustained for the long haul. Leaders are developing their capability but are they making the most of the PCN opportunity? PCC can help. Because no two networks will be the same, the process begins with listening to your needs and suggesting where we can add value. We have a track record of supporting leaders to develop using a coaching approach. In other words, we help you to build capability not dependency. While we can provide project managers and hands-on support if you need them, we find that helping you to build your own capacity and capability provides better value and more lasting impact. PCC is not a generic training company or consultancy. We are primary care specialists with the technical expertise to advise on operational matters, but we can also enable the leadership and team development crucial to making a success of your PCN. Contact enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk and we will listen to what you would find helpful.

What needs to happen for these numbers to add up to something that really makes a difference? Professor David Colin-Thomé, chair of PCC, a former GP and clinical tsar with the Department of Health, has seen policy initiatives come and go. In the latest in our series of weekly podcasts he talks to Julian Patterson about his hopes for this one and the kind of leadership that will be needed if primary care networks are to fulfil their promise.
