Breaking the cycle of despair: the support practices really need

National policy is focused on strengthening general practice – both as a critical service in its own right and as an essential part of emerging integrated care systems. The reality on the ground is often at odds with the national vision, either because promised funding is slow to get through or because practices are too busy keeping the show on the road to worry about the luxury of improvement.

Yet commissioners and practices themselves know that without tackling fundamental issues, more practices will decline, fail or continue to set their sights no higher than survival.

PCC has worked with hundreds of practices to fix the things that are holding them back. We have helped struggling practices to get out of reverse gear. We have also helped practices before issues start to become terminal with interventions that allow them to recover their momentum and repair morale.
