Many GP practices are working in, or considering, collaborations with other practices. This event allows you to learn from others already working at scale. Will working with others help make GP practices more resilient and how will it link to new care models?
These issues will be explored in the next of PCC’s Going With the Grain events, where we have assembled an excellent line-up of speakers and facilitators to share their experiences and case studies. They include Dr Tracey Vell, a GP and chief executive of Manchester LMC; Dr Gill Pickavance, chair of an eight-practice partnership in Wolverhampton that was spurred into action by a looming GP recruitment and retention crisis in an area with high levels of deprivation and ill-health; and Dr Steve Kell, who leads one of the original 15 primary care home test sites.
Book now for the events on 3 October in Birmingham and 4 October in London.
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 on 30 November in Birmingham allows delegates to consider their own impact and emotions, and equips them the tools needed to facilitate and implement change.
