Workshop Objective

Primary care networks work collaboratively to deliver greater effectiveness and increased efficiencies, whether they are in the form of PCNs or GP Clusters

Delegates will gain a clear, practical and evidence-based understanding of what has delivered success elsewhere, as well as receiving the opportunity to incorporate those ideas in actions plans for any similar activity they may now be involved in.

This session aims to give a clear, shared understanding of the value of PCNs, together with a practical understanding of how to turn this perceived value into a reality. Thornfields can also facilitate Share and Learns for your GP Cluster if you are based in Scotland or Wales.

This is an opportunity for reflection and facilitated peer-to-peer learning based around ideas sharing. The aim is for the sum of the collective parts of any new collaboration to be greater than any previous whole.

All attendees receive a certificate recording 6 CPD credits.
