Plymouth international primary care conference – workforce sustainability and person centred redesign – Richard Byng and Helen Lloyd

Hosted by Plymouth primary care and the university’s Community and Primary Care Research Group, this free event (2-3rd Nov 2017) will bring together practitioners and patients, workforce and primary care redesign innovators and international experts for a lively and creative debate addressing the key challenges facing the NHS and the role of Person Centred Coordinated Care. Addressing the workforce crisis in general practice, the two days will promote a vision of person centred primary care as centre stage in the new care models that are positioned to address the challenges facing the NHS. In particular, we will explore together how best to support people with long term conditions and those with complex needs such as frailty within new models of care.

We are excited to be sharing how we have worked with, supported, and learnt valuable insights from the care models that have developed across the south west. We will also outline how we are working together as academics, clinicians, patients and professionals from a variety of sectors to promote and improve person centred practice and systems across a varied array of models and locations. We welcome our international collaborators from the Centre for Person Centred Care in Gothenburg (GPCC), who will provide a European perspective on the importance of valuing the patient as a person, and how this has helped improve a range of outcomes in their implementation sites.

Held in the centre of Plymouth with sea views we will work together to create ideas to support both local practice and national systems of care.
