THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will consider the future for primary care services in Wales.
Those attending will discuss key findings from the final report of the Parliamentary Review of Health and Social Care in Wales, the Inquiry into PCCs and the upcoming Health and Social Care Plan, which is expected to include a new primary care plan.
Sessions consider the challenges for resourcing primary care effectively - looking at key issues around infrastructure development, workforce organisation, funding and the impact of Brexit.
The conference will also be an opportunity to consider the findings of the Wales Audit Office’s preliminary publication on the current state of primary care services in Wales - which highlighted key challenges facing the sector around costs, patient and workforce experiences, and recruitment issues.
Delegates will assess the priorities for implementing the Parliamentary Review’s recommendations to further devolve resources and decision making to PCCs - including how the Government’s £100 million transformation fund to support implementation should be applied. They will also examine the initial performance of PCCs in light of the Inquiry’s findings, including how best to increase consistency of delivery, share best practice and engage effectively with patients.
Further sessions focus on priorities for effective inspection and improving the quality of care and meeting the needs of the workforce - looking at training and skills development, and developing the leadership needed to drive change.
