Improving health outcomes for people with long term conditions

Once your PCN is up and running, we can support you to develop further understanding of your local patient population, improve services and work with other service providers.

Our offering includes:

  • Service Improvement in Primary Care Networks

This one day workshop is designed specifically for Practice Managers and professional support services staff within PCNs who wish to support change and improve care. The workshop will focus on the fundamentals of service improvement in general practice and community services…

  • Understanding BAME workshop

This workshop begins by providing PCNs with insight into their local communities, including demographic profiles, migration patterns, health behaviours and attitudes to disease and medical treatment. Participants will then be guided to take the first steps to more actively engage BAME patients to secure improved health outcomes.

  • Diabetes profile tool

Developed jointly with Diabetes UK, this tool will allow a PCN to view and interpret data for their local diabetes population. This ensures that PCNs can review the current situation for their patients, plan service focuses accordingly, before reviewing again to ensure sufficient impact is being made. This can be offered for individual Practices or on a wider scale for a PCN as a whole.

  • Asthma profile tool
  • Obesity profile tool
  • Other profiling tools include Asthma, and Obesity, and we are in the process of developing tools for COPD, ABC (AF, BP, Chol – CVD Prevention Programme) and Heart Failure which will be launched later in the year.
