At Primary Care Direct, our aim is simple, to help GP practices to grow and develop their business. Set up by Agencia, Primary Care Direct offers a consortium of expert partners, which includes top names Capsticks and BHP Accountants. With expertise in Business Management, Finance, Legal, Marketing, Bids and Change Management, at Primary Care Direct, you benefit from extensive sector experience, and a great service in one place.
In 2017, Primary Care Direct was commissioned by a variety of clients to help them grow. Working with the Safecare Network GP Federation, we provided a range of support including board development, preparation for CQC registration and training. Primary Care Direct has supported a pain management consultant to set up Optimum Pain Management Ltd, a company specialising in delivering pain management services.
A series of learning and development sessions including managing patients addicted to drugs and alcohol and customer service training for staff were also delivered to Riverside GP Practice.
We are delighted to see the number of subscribers to our service increasing, following Capsticks offering a 5% discount on their hourly rates to subscribers, and we look forward to welcoming more in 2018.
Our ambition for 2018 sees us ready to take on new business nationwide. Key areas of focus for our work at the moment include:
- GP Inspection changes – are you ready for CQC inspection changes coming in this year? If not, let us help you prepare.
- Learning & Development Sessions – we deliver a wide range of learning and development sessions for Primary Care organisations in the most suitable way for your practice or federation. See our full list of sessions ready to help you build your business.
- Ad-hoc business support including preparation for GDPR and bid writing.
We already have our first series of workshops scheduled for March on Mergers, with support from keynote speakers including Derbyshire Local Medical Committee, Core Care Links and Yorkshire Health Partners.
