Event description

Description

We would like to invite you to take part in a working session facilitated by National Voices’ Director of Policy Don Redding and former President of the NAPC, Dr James Kingsland to help you to work through and share the opportunities and challenges facing Primary Care Networks.

Primary Care Networks (PCNs) have the potential to change local care models to patient-centred care closer to home, with benefits for patients, communities and, importantly, staff groups. Despite this many system leaders are left with fundamental questions, including: What is the process of getting from where we are to where we need to be? Why does it feel so hard? Will forming a PCN actually enable the delivery of better outcomes and release more time for care?

For networks and their CCGs who are in the early stages of development, most time and effort may be taken up by agreeing new operating models, re-allocating resources, updating team structures and developing legal agreements and governance.

But we want to work together on the bigger picture:

  • How can PCN's unlock better health, care and wellbeing outcomes for people?

  • How can PCNs enable better job satisfaction for primary care staff?

  • How will PCNs help us change our relationships to the communities we work in?

  • How can PCNs increase practice sustainability?

It is on that basis that we are delighted to invite you to attend our Primary Care Network event, hosted by National Voices and in association with partners PPL and COBIC. This event will be an open forum for those involved in developing PCNs, who recognise the need to seize the opportunity PCNs bring, to answer these critical questions. Together National Voices, PPL & Cobic bring extensive experience supporting systems to develop patient-centric approaches to health and care, including a number of Primary Care Networks across the country.

The event will provide an opportunity to share and reflect with colleagues from different systems as well as allow for practical discussion on how PCNs can be developed at pace. The event will be facilitated by experts who have and are central to the development of Primary Care Networks across the country.

  • Don Redding – National Voices – Director of Policy and Partnerships. Don is a recognised thought leader on person-centred and community-based approaches to health and wellbeing. He has been actively involved in the development of PCNs and how they empower and engage communities moving forward.

  • Dr James Kingsland Previous Chair of the National Association of Primary Care. In his role as chair of the NAPC James was actively involved in the creation and development of the PCN (previously Primary Care Home) model including the implementation of the model at a number of rapid test sites.

The event will focus on three key areas:

  • How to work in partnership with citizens, the local community as well as with wider health and care partners- How can PCNs and member practices form meaningful, impactful relationships with citizens and other organisations, particularly those which impact the wider determinants of health? What mechanisms can be used to solidify these partnerships? How can practices support people be more engaged in their own health and the health of their communities?

  • How to marry personalised care with support for population health that is sustainable – How can the PCN construct be used to enable Primary Care to be become more sustainable and outcome focused? How can we enable a greater focus on prevention and proactive care? What does good primary care at scale look like, how can this support sustainability individual practice and whole-system levels?

  • How to manage the PCN setup, development and delivery processes – What are the key learnings from current exemplar PCNs? What help and support exists for fledgling PCNs? How can we determine proactively what is likely to go wrong in the development process? How can we ensure that we are sighted on risks and manage them proactively?

A detailed agenda will be co-designed with a small focus group of clinical directors between now and the event. If you would like to be involved in this process please contact: David Segal - David.Segal@pplconsulting.co.uk
