The GP contract reforms announced in February 2019 set out the ambition for CCGs and NHS England to actively encourage every practice to be part of a local primary care network by July 2019.
Primary care networks will be based on GP registered lists, typically serving natural communities of around 30,000 to 50,000. They should be small enough to provide the personal care valued by both patients and GPs, but large enough to have impact and economies of scale through better collaboration between practices and others in the local health and social care system.
OneWorkforce are able to provide hands on support and guidance to Primary Care Networks. We help to facilitate change, enabling practices to come together as a PCN to focus on improving productivity and reducing workload pressures.
We’ll help you to develop a shared vision, identify the benefits of collaborative working for your locality and help to overcome differences, reaching a consensus to drive forward outcomes as a network.
We’ve been working with PCN’s across the North of England, helping to develop membership structures, risk registers, action plans and funding streams. We facilitate early meetings, bringing together practices and leading meaningful discussions to deliver key outcomes.
