HealthChat with Dr James Kingsland
Wed 29 March 2017, 17:30 – 20:00 BST
Dr James Kingsland is President of the National Association of Primary Care, a practicing GP on the Wirral in Merseyside and a long-time contributor to the debate around the future of primary care.
Given the current national focus on the ills of the NHS and, specifically, A&E and social care, what better time to sit one of the leading figures in primary care down in the Roy Lilley guest seat?
Among the many challenging questions that Roy may ask, you might be wondering why primary care appears stuck in a time warp. Is it really all about GP contracts and payment incentives? Where is the rounded, universal, collaborative approach that the health service needs? Why so many turf wars between CCGs? Why doesn't primary care appear interested in social media, telephone triage and innovative means of keeping people out of surgeries whilst looking after their wellbeing? What of NAPC's radical Primary Care Home initiative around multi speciality community providers?
As ever, its going to be a great evening and you will be at the heart of it. Ask your difficult question. Pose your intellectual challenge. Lead the debate.
