Never has there been a more important time for primary care to take a leading role in health and social care reform. With an increasing need to improve population health, working across traditional health and care boundaries, the complexities of a changing landscape with a population with increasingly complex needs and more!
The NHS is constantly evolving and over the coming years, some of the most wide-ranging changes will occur in primary care. Primary care includes the largest number of providers and accounts for the largest proportion of patient contacts with the NHS. To meet the needs of a changing population, adopt important innovations and redesign for greater sustainability, primary care teams across England will need to evolve the way they work. This is a leadership challenge of unprecedented scale and complexity which requires that primary care professionals are inspired, equipped and supported in leadership roles. This has been recognised in successive national policy documents including the General Practice Five Year Forward View and the National Improvement and Leadership Development Board's "Developing People – Improving Care”.
To support our primary care colleagues the NHS North West Leadership Academy (NHS NWLA) is making available access to a range of offers that are designed to provide a toolkit of insights, strategies and practical skills that will help primary care leaders step up to the challenges of modern day frontline healthcare provision and the resilience to step forward positively into future challenges.
