“PCC worked with our GP federation from the start of our journey in 2015, supporting the group of practices that later became the East Lancs Union of GPs. A PCC facilitator worked with local GP leaders to understand the context for change using examples from PCC’s work in other parts of the country. He helped the group to reach agreement about its mission and purpose, giving us the foundations for practical decisions about the right organisational form and identity to adopt.
CCGs are reviewing PMS contracts. PCC recently supported NHS Warrington CCG with an event for local practices to explain the changes, the differences between PMS and GMS and the implications for practices.
PCC delivered a workshop on how to use the primary medical assurance framework web tool. The CCG wanted to support its practice managers and increase their understanding of the medical assurance framework process.
