We provide support for a range of programmes and local projects, including but not limited to:
Developing primary care networks
Primary care networks are the key to sustainability for existing primary care organisations – and promise to be the building blocks of the integrated care systems of the future. Successful primary care networks will be built on common purpose, clear vision and strong relationships. We can help you to clarify the possibilities if you’re starting out and help you to take the next steps if you are already on the journey.
GP practices that have got to grips with correspondence management have realised impressive savings in GP time and increased the job satisfaction of clerical teams. Practices receive hundreds of items of correspondence each week. Up to 60% of this could be managed by the clerical team without involving a GP. This half-day workshop shows practices how it’s done and addresses two of the high-impact actions of the GP Forward View: Develop the team and Productive workflows.
New tools and services are already allowing general practice to work in new ways. They range from systems that enable practices to improve patient flows to AI based apps that do some of the work of GPs and services where the only face to face contact between doctor and patient is on a screen.
This half-day event on 15 November in Manchester for primary care commissioners will explain some of the approaches on offer, with examples of products and services in use today.
The latest speaker to confirm is Dr Zubair Ahmed, founder of MedicSpot, who will talk about the benefits of making GPs available in community pharmacies. Patients are able to have a video consultation with a GP while performing their own diagnostic tests – assisted by pharmacy staff if necessary. MedicSpot is provided as well as not instead of existing GP services and does not require the patient to de-register. Benefits, according to the company, including reduced attendance at A&E and other NHS services.
