Our population is increasingly needing more care in out of hospital settings. This need cannot simply be met by Primary Care working the same as it does today. Now is the time to consider how Primary Care can most appropriately treat their population for both urgent and planned care need, with the most appropriate clinician, in an appropriate timescale.
We will work with you to co-design an operating model for your area and support you to implement the solution. In many cases this could mean practices working more closely with neighbouring practices to share care in a networked way across a multi-disciplinary team, through to supporting new community buildings enabling care which may have previously been provided in an acute setting, to be provided in an out of hospital setting with Primary Care clinicians.
