Partnering with a purpose: making collaboration work


Partnering with a purpose: making collaboration work

Better joined up services can only work with the full engagement of primary care and particularly general practice. Success will be determined by the quality of relationships and the vision of local leaders not by national policy or contractual mechanisms. But commissioners and practices hoping to drive change know that willingness to collaborate is not sufficient on its own.

This event on 26 July in Birmingham and 25 September in Manchester will help delegates to understand the options available for those wishing to work together and the implications of the emerging business models. Using examples of existing collaborations, speakers will identify the critical success factors, including the opportunities and threats created by the national policy push to integrated care systems.

The event is a must for primary care commissioners, practice managers and GPs, particularly those already working in federations and other local groupings. It will also be of value to those working in STPs who are responsible for making collaboration happen at all levels, and providers needing to understand how to best work with primary care. Delegates will learn about steps to take to enable new collaborations and help existing initiatives to become successful.
