Primary Care and ICBs – what is the next step in the integration journey?

How will changes to the structure of primary care impact decision making?

How is the relationship between Integrated Care Boards (ICBs) and primary care stakeholders evolving? How will funding flows be impacted?

On Friday 28th April, Prof. Phil Richardson (Chair and Chief Innovation Officer, Mtech Access) was joined by Tim Goodson (Executive Officer, Dorset General Practice Alliance) to explore how primary care is evolving and what this means for decision making, funding, and relationships with industry.

Primary care continues to play a pivotal role in delivering safe, high quality and sustainable services for the local population. Improved access, the creation of Primary Care Networks (PCNs), emerging integrated neighbourhood teams, and collaboration between practices are core elements of the continued evolution of services.

Newly emerging Alliances, such as Dorset’s General Practice Alliance (DGPA), appear key to change at a system level. They provide the facilitation and support for primary care to operate at scale whilst still providing personalised integrated services locally.

Tim Goodson, Executive Director for the DGPA and previously the Integrated Care System (ICS) lead and Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) accountable officer for the successful wave one Dorset ICS, explores the upcoming changes and what that could mean for decision making and funding.

In this webinar, Phil and Tim explore:

  • The integration journey across primary care
  • Evolving relationships and structures in primary care in the NHS
  • Where decisions are made and who makes them
  • How understanding commissioning priorities and funding flows can help Pharma and Medtech to identify decision makers and understand their needs
