PCC is pleased to announce its inclusion on Consult 18, a procurement framework designed to make it easier for NHS and public sector organisations to buy consultancy services. The framework, managed by NHS Shared Business Services, includes companies providing a wide range of specialist consulting services. For information about Consult 18, see the NHS SBS website.
NHS England is supporting primary care networks (PCN), an initiative to stimulate the development of general practice groups covering the 30,000 to 50,000 population size often regarded as the entry level point for primary care at scale. PCN advocates collaborative ways of working and finding collective solutions to local problems.
PCC works with primary care networks and - where in place - federation boards to develop the vision and plans needed by local networks, focusing on early-stage collaboration including reaching consensus, identifying roles, and creating engagement; and moving on to support the leadership development and business planning to make networks successful and sustainable. For more information about how we can facilitate networks in your area contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
