In partnership with:
At the end of January 2019, NHS England published a five-year framework for GP services. A core element of this framework is the concept of the delivery of an integrated care system through Primary Care Networks. It is intended that Primary Care Networks will become the conduit for a significant proportion of front line health care funding and that general practice will play a leading role in the new Primary Care Networks.
The new Network Contract Directed Enhanced Service agreement (“DES”), under which collaborative network services will be delivered, is due to go live on 1st July 2019. If you are in general practice, you will probably already have signed and registered your Network and may now be wondering 'what do we do next?'
Some of the other questions that you are asking might include:
- How do we structure and manage our collaborative network?
- How will we implement the sharing of resources and the provision of shared services ?
- How will we engage and manage shared staff?
- How will we manage the finances associated with the collaborative services?
- What are the VAT implications of the network arrangements?
Mitchells Grievson Chartered Accountants, and Jacksons Law Firm are hosting a FREE seminar on 5th June for GPs and Practice Managers to help them understand the purpose of the networking arrangements and the legal and financial structures which are available to achieve those purposes. We will help you to answer the questions outlined above, as well as other questions and concerns that you may have.
Our keynote speakers include legal and financial experts who have a number of years' experience advising GPs on running successful practices.
