PCC has added new dates in its learning and development programme for new and aspiring leaders of provider organisations, such as GP federations.
The nine half-day sessions help leaders to acquire the knowledge they need, including understanding the changing NHS landscape, the legal and governance requirements of federations and other new organisations, and the skills required to build effective teams and collaborate with others in the local health economy.
Find out more about the Confident Leader. The next programme will run in Birmingham from 21 September.
This is a full day workshop for contract managers who are new in post and for more experienced managers wishing to confirm or refresh their knowledge. The day covers the development of NHS dentistry with regard to the current contract and proposed dental contract reforms, the regulatory framework, primary care dental services, finance and contract management.
Delegates who attend this workshop on 6 July in London will have a better understanding of the regulatory, financial and contractual framework under which NHS dental services are commissioned and provided and the practical implications of these.
As a result of attending, delegates should feel confident in managing contract change requests, requesting contract changes themselves, implementing national variations and issuing contract notices.
Social media is a powerful marketing tool for organisations but it is not without risk. These risks can have a major impact on you, your career and your organisation. And they can happen whether or not you are using social media.
Managing risk in social media helps you analyse and prepare your organisation for the problems that may occur when using social media. It helps you understand how to handle internal social accounts and deal with external social media activity which your organisation may become involved in.
