Joined Up Care Derbyshire Update

Joined Up Care Derbyshire also known as, Derbyshire’s Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), brings together NHS organisations and local councils from across the county and city to coordinate health and social care services better to support people to stay well using the resources we have in the most efficient and effective way.

General Practice and Primary Care are key partners and collaborators in delivering this aspiration and core to the integrated primary and community services model.

Last month two events brought together clinicians, Practice manager, CCG and provider representatives to explore the implications for Derbyshire of the GPFV Workforce plans. The sessions explored what the national increases in General Practice staff mean for Derbyshire, and what people see as the key priorities for them.

A full report from the sessions will be circulated at a later date, some of the key points for future work include:

Working together to establish and maintain an accurate picture of the general practice workforce so we know where the pressure points and risks are, and can work collaboratively to address them

Working on how we can better attract and retain people into general practice, eg through introducing more flexible working patterns and reducing the factors that cause excessive stress.

Having a more consistent approach to developing the general practice workforce and introducing new roles such as ACP’s and Nursing Associates.

In other news Derbyshire has been successful in securing joint funding £260k to take forward a number of innovative pilot projects in primary care for on-line consultations. Expressions of interest from practices keen to participate in this exciting area are being sought.

Applications will be reviewed during April 2018 and successful pilots will run for a maximum of one year in order to explore their viability, to be deployed at greater scale across part or all of the county of Derbyshire.

For information and proposal forms please contact Claire Hilton clairehilton@nhs.net or speak with your local primary care team lead via the usual contact details.
