• Getting local collaboration up and running

    14 July 2016

    PCC can support GP providers to deliver local collaboration plans, from agreeing vision, mission and purpose, to forming the structures that underpin new care models, developing relationships and leaders, understanding how to bid for new services and workforce planning. A recent workshop in Doncaster brought together the CCG and 43 members of an aspiring GP federation to get practical advice about working together in the context of the emerging local sustainability and transformation plan (STP). The session included tips and inspiration from Dr Mike Smith of Camden GP Federation. Laura Sherburn, chief of partnership commissioning and primary care at Doncaster CCG described the half-day workshop as “excellent, on point and an extremely effective way of delivering some critical messages”.

  • Pharmacist experience - pharmaceutical needs assessment

    14 July 2016

    In 2015, PCC successfully developed pharmaceutical needs assessments (PNAs) for a number of health and wellbeing boards (HWB) across England, in time for publication by 1 April 2015. In line with statutory requirements, revised assessments are due to be published by 1 April 2018.

    In order that PCC can once again support development of PNAs on behalf of HWBs, we are currently looking for suitably experienced associates to join our preferred supplier database and complement the PCC team. PCC associates work as self-employed individuals, under contract with PCC to deliver specific pieces of work on a full or part time basis.
