Primary Care Transformation

The NHS Long Term Plan sets a direction of travel for Primary Care services.  This is now supported by changes to GP practice contracts outlined in Investment and Evolution – a five year framework for GP contract reform and an updated document published in February 2020: NHS England » Investment and Evolution: Update to the GP contract agreement 2020/21 – 2023/24. In Berkshire West we are now working with our practices and other partner organisations on a programme of work to develop and sustain primary care services, focusing on the development of Primary Care Networks, groupings of practices and other organisations working together in neighbourhoods serving 30-50,000 patients.  This work is overseen by our Primary Care Programme Board which brings together representatives of Primary Care Networks, other providers and Healthwatch to plan and develop services.
