Primary Care Development
Through the Primary Care Development Programme, we are supporting our partners to develop their local primary care strategy and implementation plans whilst fostering partnership working across general practice, community, mental health, pharmacy, secondary care and social care.
Our Primary Care Development Programme has been developed in response to the primary care needs of partner organisations from across our geography.
Our programme supports local areas to transform primary care through the development of new models of care, sharing of best practice, bespoke leadership development and quality improvement capability building, and targeted local support.
- Support transformation of our partners towards place-based systems of care that will deliver improved population health and greater sustainability by focusing on primary care transformation
- Support our partners to develop and implement local initiatives that harness the opportunities presented by NHS Long Term Plan and new GP Contract Framework including supporting the development of Primary Care Networks.
- Focus on supporting partners on key priority clinical areas including CVD and Mental Health.
Primary Care Network evenings
Through a series of quarterly evening workshops, we are bringing together a network of local primary care leads.
Senior staff from federations, GP networks, CCG primary care transformation teams, patient groups and the community come together to build relationships, share examples of local and national good practice, and reflect on new models of primary care with the aim of driving forward the primary care agenda and supporting the spread of best practice across the partnership geography.
Supporting Primary Care Network and Integrated Care System development
We have two programmes to support development of primary care and integrated care systems to meet the challenges of the new ways of working detailed in the Long-Term Plan and the GP Contract Framework.
These programmes combine evening and full day learning modules which are designed specifically to equip system leaders and frontline staff to embrace the challenges of new integrated ways of delivering patient care.
The programmes include 1:1 coaching and action learning sets, supporting every participant to feel equipped to deliver change within their local area.
The programmes are suitable to be run for local systems or pan-London and can be be-spoked and adapted to suit local challenges and priorities.
Primary Care Quality Improvement Collaboratives
Partner CCGs have commissioned UCLPartners to deliver Quality Improvement (QI) collaboratives, specifically designed for general practice and tailored to local needs.
Our team of GP QI leads, QI experts and Improvement Project Managers have delivered seven collaboratives across four CCG areas. This work covered 90 practices which serve a population of 1.5m people. Read a full report of this work here.
