Local transformation plans cannot succeed without effective participation of GP practices working at scale. Practices have their own compelling reasons to organise in bigger groupings, allowing them to share premises and staff, move into new areas of provision and team up to tackle growing issues of demand and workload. PCC now offers support to commissioners to enable practices to start to work together effectively and to help those groups that are already up and running to take their next steps with confidence. Our support includes personal and team training, events, local workshops and business planning. To find out more, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
PCC is holding a workshop where commissioners can learn about how to comply with the light-touch regime and what the law means for the integration agenda. Delegates can expect a frank discussion with peers and legal experts from Hempsons about procurement challenges and issues facing commissioners.
They will get advice on how to balance risk and minimise challenges, as well as on the commissioning dilemmas posed by EU, procurement and competition law. They will also consider examples of good and bad procurement practice based on specialist law firm Hempsons’ experience of advising healthcare organisations.
The event should be attended by commissioners, CCG board members, STPs, CSU representatives and any organisation interested in navigating the procurement maze and minimising risk.
Book now to reserve one of the last remaining places for the events on 26 April in London and 8 May in Manchester.
This one-day workshop is for managers undergoing and supporting staff through change programmes. The content explores the merits of different approaches to implementing change and an understanding of the role and skills of an effective change agent. The workshop 14 June in London and 4 July in Leeds allows delegates to consider their own impact and emotions, and equips them the tools needed to facilitate and implement change.
The seminar will provide an overview of the GDPR and of the Data Protection Bill insofar as it relates to the processing of personal data within the health and social care context and incorporates and supplements the GDPR.
