The Future Of General Practice

The Future Of General Practice

I am writing to remind you about our Future of General Practice meetings being held on: –

Tuesday 2nd February at Lanhydrock Golf Club


Thursday 4th February at St Michael’s Hotel, Falmouth

Both events will start with refreshments from 1830. We aim to start the meeting at 1900 hrs and finish by 2130 at the latest.

These meetings are an opportunity for you to provide your personal and practice’s views and influence the Future of General Practice in Cornwall & Isles of Scilly.  The meeting will also help the LMC and the CCG to gather ‘intelligence’ from GPs of all levels of experience including those in training and those approaching the end of their careers to inform the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (required in June 2016) that includes clear plans for the sustainability of general practice. The format will involve an introduction to include: –

  • Current workforce provision
  • Workforce projections
  • Work of the Primary Care 2020 group
  • Five Year Forward View and strategic planning
  • Government intentions
  • Current and possible future contractual framework
  • An LMC view of the direction of travel for Primary Care

This part of the evening should take no more than 30-45 minutes because the second part of the evening will be devoted to small group discussions on the above topics and will include discussions on: –

  • Career intentions
  • Shape of Cornish General Practice
  • The future of GP partnership
  • Portfolio Careers
  • Premises
  • Federation
  • Workforce development

Your involvement in these meetings is crucial and we hope to see as many of you there as possible.
