Facilitating will be Lily Dixon, the Training Hub’s Paramedic Lead; Kerri Magnus, Advanced Practice Lead; and Rachel Butt, qualified HEE Roadmap Supervisor.

                                                                                                                                  We are aware of the uncertainty around the HEE Roadmap, so we hope that – in sharing the learning we’ve accrued with you and your colleagues – we can help to clarify things, both for paramedics and supervisors, be they AHPs, GPs, or GPNs. To this end, Lily has mapped herself against stage 1 of the HEE Roadmap and designed her PDP against stage 2; this, in combination with her responses to the knowledge, skills, and attributes (KS&A) section, will be discussed and examined for examples of potential evidence for the portfolio route. There will be time to answer your questions, too, so do bring them along.

                                                                                                                                  If this webinar is relevant and of interest to you, do come along – there’s no limit on numbers, so feel free to invite any colleagues, too.

The Star has been used by the team to address workforce challenges and define innovative workforce solutions across the country, as outlined in the videos linked below:

                                                                                                                                  HEE is confident that increased use of the HEE Star model throughout primary care will support delivery of both integrated working and new roles. This training is available in two parts: Level 1 is an introductory webinar, and Level 2 – aimed at those experienced with facilitating workforce change or required to by their role – consists of two sessions followed by a HEE Star workshop focused on local primary care workforce challenges. Both levels are available this September.

                                                                                                                                  Further information on both Levels 1 and 2 can be found in this document, produced by HEE.

Increase your confidence, and support colleagues in a similar boat.

                                                                                                                                  To register for the next GP Buddy Meeting, please complete the application form.

                                                                                                                                  In a new report commissioned by the NHS Personalised Care Institute, and conducted by researchers from the National Institute for Health Research Applied Research Collaboration West (NIHR ARC West) and the University of Bristol’s Centre for Academic Primary Care (CAPC), the relationship between personalised care and remote consulting is examined. Both are at the forefront of NHS England’s agenda, but the distance between clinician and patient afforded by remote consulting is not necessarily conducive to creating health plans jointly them.

                                                                                                                                  In addressing this potential conflict, researchers sought to answer the following questions:

                                                                                                                                  • How does remote consultation affect access to healthcare and quality of care?
                                                                                                                                  • Is remote healthcare as good as face-to-face?
                                                                                                                                  • When are remote consultations not suitable?
                                                                                                                                  • Can personalised care be delivered remotely?

                                                                                                                                  In short, the report concludes that remote consultations are not inherently good or bad, with their effectivity being dependent on the patient’s needs, life stage, and finances. Health professionals are advised to think carefully about how to use remote consultations, and for what purpose, and to enable patients in having a choice about how their consulted.
