Reshaping Primary Care – an opportunity to be involved
Posted on: November 26 2014, 03:44 pm

For info, this has just been sent to CRG (Clinical Reference Group) members:

Reshaping Primary Care – an opportunity to be involved

An opportunity has arisen to help shape primary care development in England. The National Network of Quality in Primary Care (NNQPC) focuses on uniting people from various parts of the primary care system (NHS and outside) in a common purpose to promote understanding, joint working and prevent duplication within primary care.  The NNQPC is chaired by the Deputy Medical Director of NHS England and is looking to increase the number of patient/carer representatives that currently contribute by giving their experiences and voice to this important area of work. For example, this could include a patient/carer giving their opinion on how the quality of general practice could be improved.

 

The NNQPC is looking for two patient representatives, who have experience of giving their views on primary care, e.g. involved in local GP Patient Participation Groups, in order to provide advice and guidance to the NNQPC from a patient’s perspective.  Meetings take place approximately every eight to ten weeks in London and all reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed.  If you are interested in being part of the NNQPC, please complete the attached form by the 12th December and email back to thomasbarnicle@nhs.net.    You can also call Tommy on 0113 8251067 for further information about the NNQPC or if you have any questions/queries. 

I don't know if it is only open to people who are already members of CRGs but I'm sure Mr. Barnicle will be able to explain.

Best wishes
