What is the CCG’s primary care strategy for B&NES?

We will publish our final primary care strategy by 1 April 2017.

It will build upon our Operational Plan for 2017-19 and our Statement of Intent for Primary Care, setting out our vision for Bath and North East Somerset general practice in 2020.

The key themes within our visions are:

  • Progressing delivery at scale:

Changes to the contractual model and scale of delivery

  • Building multidisciplinary team approaches:

Changes to skill mix and composition of teams

  • Enhancing services delivered across seven days:

Changes to service design, location, timing and method of delivery

  • Maximising the role of technology:

To support delivery of a wider range of methods for patient interaction with primary care

  • Enhancing the primary care workforce:

Developing new roles to support primary care

  • Securing high quality primary care services:

Through quality monitoring and peer review
