The NHS Long Term Plan and GP contract framework has given practices permission and autonomy to think creatively about making the changes needed towards truly integrated out-of-hospital care. Primary care networks are a fundamental part of this new vision. 

However, for these networks to successfully develop and deliver on these set aims there are a number of challenges that need to be addressed. This workshop will provide an opportunity to:

  • share models and ideas between emerging PCNs, focusing on common priorities, such as changes in clinical models and workforce, and funding flows
  • examine the skills and resources that are needed to meet local objectives
  • explore the changes in behaviour and culture required to make a reality of PCNs, as well as models of collective governance and decision-making being developed
