A progress report on plans to help transform GP services across south east Hampshire will be given to a public meeting in Fareham this week.
Keeley Ellis, Head of Primary Care for NHS Fareham and Gosport and South Eastern Hampshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), will talk on local implementation of the General Practice Forward View across the area.
Published in April 2016, the GP Forward View commits to an extra £2.4 billion nationally a year to support general practice services by 2020/21.
It aims improve patient care and access, and invest in new ways of providing primary care.
Mrs Ellis is giving a presentation to the two CCGs’ Primary Care Commissioning Committee (PCCC), which meets at the CommCen Building, Fort Southwick, James Callaghan Drive, this Wednesday (June 7) from 2pm-3.30pm.
She will talk about plans to extend access to GP services in the area and initiatives including ‘care navigation,’ in which GP receptionists are being trained to direct parents to services – freeing up GP time.
The PCCC makes decisions on the review, planning and procurement of primary care services in the two CCG areas. The public is welcome to attend the meeting. The agenda and papers can be accessed here.
