Integrated care systems – practical steps for primary care

Integrated care systems – practical steps for primary care — NHS Networks

General practices that want to benefit most from the £2.8bn investment available need to embrace primary care networks, but how will these entities evolve and how do they fit within the broader context of integrated care systems (ICS)?

This workshop on 23 April in Manchester and 15 May in Birmingham brings together commissioners, GP practices and others involved in shaping emerging ICSs.

We will hear from a leading lawyer about how existing primary care contracts, new GP network contracts and alliance contracts can be used to enable integrated services.

A speaker from NHS Dudley CCG will share learning from their journey towards integrated care, underlining the importance of making primary care full partners in the change process.

The focus of the workshop will be on the practical steps delegates need to take now, considering the obstacles they are likely to face, the opportunities presented by new ways of working and the critical success factors for primary care in evolving integrated care services.
