Aimed at general practices and those working in community settings, this conference will give guidance on how to provide a co-ordinated experience of care for patients, outlining the organisational options available to do this.
The conference will show you how:
general practices across the UK are already coming together in federations, networks or merged partnerships in order to increase their scale and provide more accessible and responsive services
the different funding streams and contracts that are available might help you achieve your ambitions and stimulate greater collaboration with other community providers
specialist general practice approaches in the US are truly transforming patient care and what this could mean for the UK.
The event will also:
showcase established UK models including examples from those selected for the Challenge Fund Pilots, to improve access to general practice and test innovative ways of delivering GP services
debate the future of general practice in the UK and the role GP leaders and general practice has to play in redesigning the health system to better support future needs.
The conference is a key opportunity for those working in primary care to come together to share learning and explore how to scale out models of best practice and replicate them in other settings.
General practice is widely recognised to be the foundation on which the NHS is based. But practices are coming under increasing pressure with rising demands and expectations from patients who are presenting with chronic co-morbidities, in an increasingly difficult financial environment. Managing these complex conditions requires a collaborative approach from services across primary and community settings with strong links to acute providers and specialist services. General practice must play a leading role in providing this integrated system of care that provides a high quality, co-ordinated range of services that meets the expectations of patients and their families.
