Successful and sustainable implementation of FCP within Primary Care Networks
Join our panel of clinical and industry experts in conversation, on Wednesday 16 September 2020 from 12:30 – 13:45, in the second of a series of free, live webinars.
Connect Health “Change” bring you the second in a series of webinars to make and embed transformation in healthcare. Aimed at system leaders and clinicians across the NHS, the webinars provide practical solutions to the challenging issues we are all grappling with.
FCP (First Contact Physiotherapy) has been championed within the NHS Long Term Plan and is considered essential to enable successful delivery. With ICS leaders committing to the phased roll out of FCP, alongside the potential possessed by FCP services to support COVID recovery, FCP implementation is moving at pace. This webinar will explore FCP from multiple perspectives to aid the successful and sustainable implementation of FCP within Primary Care Networks, including whether implementing FCP in your locality is the best use of resources.
The topic encompasses four aspects:
- Identifying whether there is a need for FCP, or is DES funding better invested elsewhere?
- What you need to know about First Contact Physiotherapy (FCP) in order to maximise its potential should you chose to implement.
- How a clear vision and collaboration at place/system level delivers sustainability.
- Understanding the DES, looking beyond cost towards value.
