Improving care for children and young people in primary care
Tue 25 April 2017, 08:30 – 13:30 BST
This event pulls together expertise and insight to strengthen the care of Children and Young People (CYP) in general practice.
GP practices are starting to work together at scale across London. Improving the care of CYP is a priority and HLP is delighted to support several London GP organisations to develop new models which can be rolled out across a wider population area. HLP will develop a toolkit on the basis of the pilots for use by others working to improve CYP care at scale in primary care. The event aims to highlight why care for CYP needs to be different and we will hear from the primary care pilots about what they are doing in their area: subject areas vary from the establishment of integrated care networks for children, to a project to improve asthma management and care.
The agenda for the day includes:
- Making primary care work for young people - Emma Rigby, Association of Young People's Health
- An example of where this is happening: Child Health General Practice Hubs - Mando Watson, St Mary's Hospital
- Introduction to three of the pilot schemes: Bexley CCG, Hammersmith & Fulham Federation and Islington CCG
- What kind of health economy do you want to leave our children? The role of primary care in making it happen: Albert G Mulley Jnr, Dartmouth Institute
- How data can support change - Dagmar Zeuner, London Borough of Merton
- How primary care can support mental health of CYP - Alex Goforth, Anna Freud Centre
- The Well Centre and Teen Health Checks: an integrated approach to Adolescent Health - Stephanie Lamb, the Well Centre
Representatives of all London CCGs are warmly invited, and we would welcome GPs, nurses, CYP commissioners, pharmacists and the wider primary healthcare team. Please cascade out to your community teams who may be interested in this event.
