Resilience will be key to the success of primary care networks

 

Resilience will be key to the success of primary care networks

An important role for primary care networks is to enable the stabilisation of general practice. Unless stronger practices help struggling practices in their networks to improve, that PCNs will face an uphill battle.

We define resilience simply as the attributes needed to keep going, including the ability to withstand changes of circumstance, eg the loss of a GP partner or an increase in list size as a result of a new residential development. A resilient practice is one able to offer high-quality care with healthy finances and a well-motivated workforce. In other words, resilience is not only for practices already in choppy waters but for those who can see them coming. Find out more about PCC’s support or contact us at enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk to find out how PCC can help your practices.
