General Practice Management: Fit For The Future (Nottingham)
- 08:30 - 13:30
- Nottingham Conference Centre
Michael is the Programme Director for Bury’s programme Bury’s Wave 1 pilot under the Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund. The programme has established a single, shared service that offers patients additional GP appointments in extended hours. The service is available to patients from all of Bury’s 33 GP practices and is delivered by the Bury GP Federation. In addition the programme has worked with practice to make telephone consultations a routine alternative to face to face GP appointments and increasing the number of patient registrations for online services.
Michael will explain Bury’s approach to the shared hub model and its operating principles, shared GP records, developing a sustainable GP workforce, public awareness activity and some early observations on performance of the pilot that will inform re-commissioning of the service.
