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.

Strategic objectives

  • 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.

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.

You can find more information about the South East Essex Quality Improvement Collaborative here and information on the Newham QI work here.
