Primary care & emergency services policy workshop

Primary care & emergency services policy workshop

Saturday 06 July 2013 at 11:00-15:30

The future of the primary care team and how services should be delivered to ensure that they are patient focused and remain clinician led will be a key debate for future governments. We have seen successive governments eroding aspects of primary care and we would want to see this fully restored in an integrated way. The workshop will look at best practice model(s) for ensuring that communities are best served.

We will also explore the best systems of delivering emergency services to the public. We will look at previous models, current failures and future opportunities. Paramedics and other ambulance staff, staff from the former NHS Direct, GPs, practitioners from A&E departments and other health professionals working in this line will be welcome to attend the day to explore the best way forward for emergency services.

We are looking to invite our members across the health sector who work in primary care and emergency services, and would have an interest in developing this policy to participate in the day.

The workshop will cover:

•    scope of primary care
•    emergency services
•    models of delivery of primary care
•    governance and funding structures
•    integration with the rest of the NHS
•    working with other agencies/social capital
•    health literacy
