• Facilitation skills level one

    3 August 2017

    Facilitation skills have a positive impact on meetings, negotiations and relationships. Confident, capable facilitators are an asset to any organisation.

    PCC offers two levels of facilitation training, level one for beginners and level two for those with experience.

    The level one workshop on 25 October in London introduces the concept of facilitation, explores the differences between facilitation, training and chairing, and allows delegates to practise some of the key techniques at the facilitator's disposal.

    It is suitable for those new to facilitation and those familiar with the concepts who need a refresher.

  • Support for general practice resilience

    3 August 2017

    The GP resilience programme recognises that many practices are already struggling to cope with existing workload and that others are looking for long-term solutions in the face of uncertainties about the supply of GPs, funding, running costs, premises and related issues. PCC is working with practices at all points on the spectrum from the most vulnerable to those interested in building resilience through collaboration, including with other organisations, to provide the necessary infrastructure and scale to support effective sharing of resources, workforce development and expansion of services both to serve the care needs of local populations and to secure the future resources practices need for long-term sustainability and growth. To find out how we are working with practices and primary care commissioners to stabilise vulnerable practices and support GP resilience, please email enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk with “GP resilience” in the subject line.

  • Five Year Forward View: Primary care – next steps

    1 August 2017

    The Next Steps refresh of the Five Year Forward View acknowledged both the continuing strain on general practice and the need to build on the strengths of list-based primary care in developing care models of greater scope and scale.

    As accountable care systems and multi-specialty community providers (MCPs) evolve it becomes harder to understand the complexities of the system and the roles of the different organisations involved. PCC has a range of experts to help you make sense of the emerging models, support the development of general practice and make the best decisions for your population.

    We can provide local support through tailored workshops, expert advice, speakers for local events and hands-on project management support.

    For more information contact enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk with the subject “Next steps development”.

  • Workshops promise to get boards up to speed on conflicts of interest

    27 July 2017

    NHS England has published updated guidance for CCGs on managing conflicts of interest. This is to ensure the CCG guidance is fully aligned with the recently published cross system conflicts of interest guidance.

    NHS England requires all governing body members to undergo online training in respect of conflicts of interest. However we believe there are no hand-books, rules or algorithms that can be universally followed to give the “right” answers.
