The Complete Care Community programme team successfully hosted ‘The Future of General Practice’ Keynote Theatre at Best Practice on 13 October.
We would like to thank everyone who helped us to deliver this successful event, including our expert speakers and delegates that visited our networking area and attended the five sessions to find out more about the latest developments and best practice in how Primary Care Networks (PCNs) are tackling health inequality.
Professor James Kingsland, Clinical Lead for the Complete Care Community Programme, opened the event and set the scene for the growing challenge of health inequality. Professor Paul Batchelor, University of Central Lancashire then updated delegates with the approach and latest developments for evaluation of the programme. Dr Bola Owolabi, Director Health Inequalities NHS England and NHS Improvement, then provided a national perspective on tackling health inequality, before five of our PCN demonstrator sites discussed their programmes of work and the results already achieved.
Complete Care Community is an innovative national programme designed to support health systems utilise PCNs in tackling health inequalities. Delivered by Arden & GEM and Healthworks, with clinical leadership provided by Professor James Kingsland OBE, the programme centres on working with Primary Care Networks to identify the key health inequality challenges faced by local populations, in particular those associated with the wider determinants of health, that require collaborative working with local councils and other agencies.
