Get the inside track on integrating new workforce roles

Primary care networks provide the opportunity (and funding) to add new roles to existing general practice teams – to alleviate workload, to plug capacity gaps, to improve the services on offer to patients, or often a combination of the three. How well do you understand new roles like the clinical pharmacist, the social-prescribing link worker and the physician associate?

This half-day event in London on 25 September gives you the opportunity to find out from three professionals already working in general practice what they contribute. They will also share their experiences about how well prepared they felt for their new roles and the challenges they faced, providing valuable tips on how to get it right for practice managers and PCN leads considering expanding their teams. The event also provides an update and opportunities to ask questions about funding for new roles, as well as an action-planning session to apply the lessons from the case studies to your local situation.
