Going with the grain: new models for general practice


Going with the grain: new models for general practice

Add event to calendar vCal

National policy poses a dilemma by insisting on the one hand that general practice is key to the development of new care models but recognising on the other that parts of general practice are badly in need of support. Evolutionary models of change represented by the primary care home (PCH) and other kinds of GP hub promise to resolve the dilemma, creating building blocks of the necessary scale to work in larger systems such as multi-speciality community provider (MCP) or accountable care systems.

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 has led one of the original 15 primary care home test sites.
