No two primary care networks are the same - nor is our support

Primary care networks are starting to emerge across the country to meet the need for locally-determined solutions to the challenges of scale and collaboration.

General practice is rightly suspicious of prescriptive one-style-suits-all models and we recognise that just as no two networks will be the same, the support they need will also vary. PCC is working with a number of networks to develop the right governance, support business planning and learn from the leaders of networks that are already up and running. In Wakefield we worked with the leaders of local groups of practices to understand the implications of different integrated care models and to develop the negotiating and influencing skills to help practices work with each other and with the wider system. Kate Brentley, managing director of Conexus, the overarching federation developed, said: “I have done a lot of development programmes and this has been by far the best.” To find out more about how PCC can support your network contact enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk
