Cambridgeshire and Peterborough GP Forward View

The CCG believes that a thriving primary care service is vital to delivering improvements in patient care, patient experience and ‘out of hospital’ care. However, primary care currently faces multiple challenges in terms of demography, workload, funding reviews, recruitment and retention.

Our vision for a sustainable future involves practices working together to engage a wide range of staff to deliver proactive, standardised and integrated care.

In our vision for care in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, general practice will continue to provide excellent evidence-based care for our patients. It is a place where communities and patients play a fuller role in maintaining good health, and when physical or mental health is in need of support, a responsive, broader primary care team can signpost the most relevant health professional to help the patient and enable people to manage their own needs and return to their normal lives.

NHS England published the General Practice Forward View (GP Forward View) in April 2016, which commits to an extra £2.4 billion a year to support general practice services by 2020/21.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough’s General Practice Forward View Strategy 

Our strategy is built around a vision of practices working together to engage a wide range of staff to deliver proactive, standardised and integrated care. Our ambitions are set out below:

Vision: Our vision for a sustainable future involves practices working together to engage a wide range of staff to deliver proactive, standardised and integrated care.

Our ambitions

Models of Care

Ambition One: enable practices to work increasingly at scale, with redesigned incentives for better ways of working.

Ambition Two: working closely with clinicians and patients, redesign how care is delivered, with a particular focus on patients in care homes, patients with multiple long term conditions, and patients with urgent care needs.

Improving Access

Ambition Three: determine how we will improve access to primary care over evenings and weekends and ensure this access is used to support patients with the greatest need aligned to the care model (as required by NHSE). This would include a trajectory around access to be delivered at 100% by October 2018; In line with the key area of focus set out in the GPFV, there is a need to make the primary care access requirements meaningful to general practitioners.

Workforce

Ambition Four: deliver a workforce programme that will support our primary care staff in working safely, through recruitment and retention, leadership development and capacity creation

Workload

Ambition Five: support the creation of capacity in primary care, finding strength and resilience by enabling practices to adopt proven methods of addressing workload challenges, and through working together more effectively. This will include a CCG commitment to provide additional support to general practice from early 2017.

Infrastructure

Ambition Six: maximise the benefits of modern information technology and develop a clear approach to premises investment linked to service and provider developments (in line with the digital and estates strategy).
