  • At the table or on the menu: the choice for general practice

    26 April 2018

    Recent planning guidance from NHS England sends a clear signal to general practices that if they don’t start working together of their own accord solutions may be imposed from above. A briefing from PCC reminds practices that regardless of national policy, there are compelling reasons for greater collaboration now. Great scale will also increase the opportunities for general practice to influence the development of integrated care systems – the same systems that may ultimately shape their own futures.

  • Essential training for commissioners of primary care dental services

    24 April 2018

    PCC is running three dental primary care contracting essentials courses over the next year.

    Our level one workshop enables delegates to develop a better understanding of the regulatory, financial and contractual framework under which NHS eye-health services are commissioned and provided and the practical implications of these. It will help delegates to feel confident in managing contract change requests, requesting contract changes themselves, implementing and managing national variations and issuing contract notices. This session is running on 15 November in Leeds and 23 January 2019 in London.

    The level two workshop builds on the learning from level one and uses real work examples to take you through scenarios you are likely to face as contracting managers. It provides the opportunity for delegates to look at their own local scenarios and queries and promotes decision making. This session on 2 May in London is aimed at delegates with a basic understanding or above of the GDS and PDS arrangements.

    The level three session allows delegates to work through two local scenarios, understanding the contractual issues, the options available and formulating contractual notices and practice difficult conversations. This workshop is on 19 July in London and 12 September in Leeds.

  • Step by step guide to developing a strategic business plan for general practices

    18 April 2018

    There are more demands than ever on general practice, and it’s important providers have a clear plan to remain profitable and sustainable for the long term, whatever the outcome of national and local health policy. A business plan enables you to scan the horizon, assess the threats and opportunities ahead, formulate your options, and develop a simple, workable and effective plan to enable you to be in control of your own destiny.

    This webinar will be of interest to GPs and practice managers in individual practices, and also to groups of practices working together in loose collaborations, alliances or formal federations. It may also be of interest to CCGs supporting local primary care development, who may wish to participate for their own learning and/or encourage some of their practices to take part.

    The webinars are being held on 1 and 23 May. To find out more email events@pcc-cic.org.uk
