• Supporting general practice to work at scale

    17 August 2017

    PCC has been supporting GP practices to better understand the benefits of working collaboratively. We work with groups of practices, considering local needs, their aims and vision for the future, helping them to consider the opportunities and the different models available. Working with others is one of the possible solutions to support practices to become more resilient and we are supporting a number of areas as part of the national resilience funding. PCC also provides capacity to support mergers or to help set up federations or new care models. Our experts can provide advice or support to any stage of the development process, from first meetings through to delivery of services, including governance structures, business planning, facilitation and board development. To discuss your needs, please email enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk with “collaborative working” in the subject line.

    Primary care is central to the success of accountable care systems, multi-specialty community providers (MCPs) and primary and acute care systems (PACS). But while trusts and primary care have a shared interest in making new care models work for everyone, no one seems to know where to start.
