Strong leadership within primary care is vital if quality standards, improvement programmes, and the ambitions set out in the General Practice Forward View are to be realised.
We are working with primary care teams to develop a robust portfolio of development opportunities including our Practice Managers programme and action learning sets, which enhances understanding of leadership behaviours, knowledge and skills, and provides an opportunity to share good practice. It equips practice managers to champion and lead change/service improvement.
Our Triumvirate primary care leadership and change agent programme enables a multi-professional team from primary care practices to become a team of change agents. Participants learn to transform their organisation, and thrive as they face change challenges, transform systems/processes, and create a collaborative team approach.
In addition to our GP Fellowship programme, the proposed system leadership emerging leaders forum will include membership from primary care teams, and provide Organisation Development for merging, enlarging and federating GP practices. In doing so, it ensures primary care leaders are equipped with the knowledge, skills and tools to implement talent processes and pipelines.
