PCN workforce expansion and employment law - what you need to know

This half-day event on 2 October in London and 15 October in Manchester  examines the legal issues surrounding the expansion of workforce being driven by primary care networks. Addressing the workforce crisis in primary care was one of the main motives behind the creation of primary care networks. GP practices working together in networks should be enabled to employ a wider range of clinical staff able to address the workload issues caused by rising demand and a shortage of GPs. The network contract provides incentives for workforce expansion with full or partial funding for some new roles available to practices.
