The changing role of the general practitioner, primary care, and the development of CCGs

This seminar will provide an opportunity to assess the progress of clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) following the authorisation in April of the new bodies established by the Health and Social Care Act.

Part of the seminar will focus on the role of the GP in the reformed NHS, and the key issues surrounding the future of primary care. Further sessions will address the challenges and opportunities CCGs face in implementing their new duties, as well as how they are working together with bodies such as Health and wellbeing boards, Healthwatch and the NHS Commissioning Board to integrate care.

Speakers include Professor David Colin-Thomé, chair, Primary Care Commissioning.

The event will be held on 18 June in London and is CPD certified.
