With primary care at a crossroads, debate has turned to its future role within integrated care systems and the operating model for primary care.
The Fuller Stocktake set a welcome new direction of travel, focused on integrating primary care to improve access, experience and outcomes. With pressures on services mounting, the focus must now shift to turning the vision to reality – considering the contracting, commissioning and funding arrangements to enable change and the model to deliver it.
To support this, we are convening leaders and practitioners to turn ambition into action.
Our five design groups and communities of interest support solution-focused conversations about where next for primary care, designing practical resources, showcasing innovation and working with national and system leaders to influence change and share ideas.
Practical, problem-solving and peer-led, these networking spaces will shape the future of primary care.
Join our design groups and communities of interest
Our groups meet regularly throughout the year and are based around five topics. Click on each circle to discover more.
Each design group also has its own community of interest. A space where individuals can share views, experiences and ideas and feed into design group plans through our primary care app and other communication channels. The design groups can test ideas, share outputs and learn from the wider community. To learn more or to join, email us.
