We are delighted to have been invited to speak at the Best Practice in Primary Care Exhibition, at the NEC on the 22nd October.

Keith Nurcombe, DLS’s Commercial Director will be in the Technology First theatre between 12.10 – 12.40 explaining how with the right digital technology, service re-design and business transformation, technology can extend access to primary care.

The session will outline our experiences as part of the Prime Ministers Challenge Fund wave 1 and 2, highlighting the challenges experienced during the programmes and the benefits our partners from federations and super-practices have seen.

Best Practice is produced in partnership with the National Association for Primary Care and is the annual conference to attend for practical advice on all the big issues facing general practice and how they will impact on your practice and federation.

Headline topics for the event will cover:

GPs trailblazing new community-based care models as part of the £200 million Forward View ‘transformation’ programme;

  • How the £1 billion primary care infrastructure fund is being spent, details of the £10 million programme to expand the general practice workforce and the impacts of co-commissioning on general practice.
  • Four half-day master classes covering diabetes, respiratory disease, dermatology and MSK.
  • What’s in the pipeline for the 2015/16 contract;
  • data;
  • seven-day working;
  • new technologies to improve online access and patient care;
  • case studies from second-wave Prime Minister Challenge Fund sites
  • impacts of the new CQC inspection and ratings regime.
