The 15 May submission date for primary care network submissions has come and gone. PCC adviser and former practice business manager Tracy Green talks to Julian Patterson about where we are - and what comes next.

PCC’s Confident Leader applied learning programme can help you develop these skills in small groups with your peers, supported by qualified coaches and topic experts.
