Tackling the NHS Long-Term Plan

The NHS Long-Term Plan (LTP) is a huge shake-up in the world of healthcare - but how does it affect your GP practice? If you want to learn exactly what’s changed, and what new opportunities it may have created for your practice, Thornfields cover the key things to know about the LTP in our half-day Strategy into Action workshop.

Primary Care Networks (PCNs)

If your GP practice is collaborating more with other organisations or establishing a Primary Care Network (PCN), how do you ensure your new structure is greater than the sum of its parts? Your evolving network can gain real value from fully understanding the breadth of knowledge that already exists within it and how to optimally blend cultures and resources. We can help organisations navigate this tricky process through our full-day Learn and Share - PCNs workshop.


We can help you with recruitment, whether it is Social Prescribers, PCN Pharmacists or other new staff. FPM Group can offer the following services:

  • Draft and host adverts
  • Sample job descriptions and person specifications
  • Organising selection events
  • Recruiting the Right Person workshops


A Primary Care Network supports practices to work at scale and benefit from working with larger community based teams. We can help you to utilise the "wisdom within" in your collaborative organisation through our Learn and Share sessions.


Thornfields' can make sure your evolving processes are as effective, efficient and compliant as they can be with the following workshops:

Workforce Development

Our Thrive and Survive structure consultancy helps Practice Managers and GPs understand the challenges ahead and the best way to navigate them. If any of your GPs are considering retirement in the next five years, we can help them prepare for that eventuality in our half-day Build Your Own Rainbow workshop. Time is tight for many managers, but Thornfields can still help you gain a stronger grasp on how to lead a successful GP practice in our full day Successful Business Manager in Primary Care structure consultancy. If you want to promote patients taking greater personal responsibility for their own wellbeing, our Motivational Interviewing workshop will equip your staff with the skills to put that plan into action.
