The deadline for GDPR has passed, but many practices are still not compliant. While the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) has made it clear it does not expect full and immediate compliance, there is a danger that the issue will either be swept under the carpet or that GDPR will continue to consume energy. PCC offers a half-day training for practices and all the template policies and documents they need to make short work of compliance. Our trainers have direct experience of GDPR implementation in general practice and the materials are quality assured by healthcare and data protection law specialist Hill Dickinson. CCGs interested in getting their practices up to speed with the minimum of fuss should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
The Confident Practice Manager programme is designed for those who aspire to improve in their leadership role in practice management. The programme brings together like-minded individuals in a safe and stimulating environment to learn together and share experiences, supported by experienced executive coaches who provide context and with expert input on a number of areas relevant to participants.
Better joined up services can only work with the full engagement of primary care and particularly general practice.
Success will be determined by the quality of relationships and the vision of local leaders not by national policy or contractual mechanisms. But commissioners and practices hoping to drive change know that willingness to collaborate is not sufficient on its own.
This event on 26 July in Birmingham and 25 September in Manchester will help delegates to understand the options available for those wishing to work together and the implications of the emerging business models. Using examples of existing collaborations, speakers will identify the critical success factors, including the opportunities and threats created by the national policy push to integrated care systems.
