A new support offer focusing on ‘proactive care’ is available for 20 PCNs across Greater Manchester.
The programme will support PCNs to deliver new models of proactive care with the aim of improving patient outcomes and reducing demand on primary and secondary care.
NHS Greater Manchester Integrated Care (NHSGM) and Greater Manchester Primary Care Provider Board (GMPCB) have partnered with the national CLEAR programme and Peak Health Coaching to provide an exciting new support package for 20 PCNs in Greater Manchester.
The six-month programme includes targeted support for PCNs to develop new models of proactive care with the aim of improving patient outcomes and reducing demand on primary and secondary care.
Proactive care is an NHS Long-Term Plan commitment focused on the provision of care in the community for patients living with long term conditions such as frailty and comorbidities, who would benefit most from integrated, evidence-based care. The aim of this type of planned, co-ordinated and personalised care is to help people live well and independently for longer, especially those with multiple long-term conditions.
Proactive care places a strong emphasis on preventing health issues before they occur with pre-emptive measures to maintain and improve an individual’s wellbeing. It is also an opportunity to address health inequalities by using data that’s available to identify specific groups of patients. The transformative potential of this work on proactive primary care in Greater Manchester is significant.
PCNs interested in this opportunity are invited to attend a webinar on Thursday 3 August from 12:30pm to 1:30pm where we will explain the project in greater detail as well as answer your questions. We will also discuss how you can get the most out of the project and what’s needed in terms of preparation ahead of the workshops. You can join the webinar here.
The deadline for expressions of interest is Tuesday 8 August.
