Integrated Care top of the agenda at Protected Learning Time

Local GPs and primary care staff are continuing with their programme of peer-led development at this month's 'Protected Learning Time' an event designed by NHS Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) which aims to provide professional learning and development opportunities for primary care based staff.

Hosted virtually, the event will look at the knowledge and resources needed to support GPs and healthcare professionals to think about large scale change and integrated care as well as cancer, personal and workforce resilience and online consultations.

Dr Nigel Wells, Clinical Chair at the CCG said: “The Vale of York area is fortunate to have high-quality primary care services, but we are now experiencing challenges in the recruitment of new staff, the retention of experienced colleagues and an ever-increasing work load.

“We want to see primary care at the centre of service delivery, ensuring that hospital-based care focuses on the elements that can only be done in a hospital setting.

“The protected learning time we have developed for our member practices will help towards providing a firm foundation for us to deliver care that meets the population’s changing needs and allow for a renewed focus on improving health over treating disease.”

The event takes place on Tuesday 6 July 2021 and to ensure that local patients continue to receive the care they need from their local practice, the local Out of Hours GP provider, Vocare will be supplying clinical cover from 12:30pm to 6pm to those practices that choose to take up this learning and development. Patients can call Vocare on 0300 123 0762.
