A parliamentary report explores the development of new integrated ways of planning local health and care services, which have arisen out of the NHS Five Year Forward View. The report supports the move away from a competitive landscape of autonomous providers towards more integrated, collaborative and placed-based care. However, it finds that understanding of these changes has been hampered by poor communication and states that the government and the NHS must improve how they communicate NHS reforms to the public.
Leadership, communication and collaboration are among the key drivers of improvement for ten GP practices featured in a new report published by Care Quality Commission.
The report includes case studies of ten practices – nine of which were originally rated as inadequate and, through dedicated effort, improved to an overall rating of good on their last inspection. The tenth practice improved from a rating of requires improvement to outstanding.
PCC provided support to one of the practices featured in the report. For more information about our support for practice development email email@example.com.
