Delegates at this conference examined the potential for new ways of working to transform primary care, at a time when provision across Wales faces substantial pressures and as innovative new ways of working are developed to tackle the issues.
The seminar came as the Welsh Government neared the end of its primary care service plan up to 2018 and as the Health, Social Care and Sport Committee carried out its inquiry into primary care. Delegates discussed the role of different primary care services within the provision of care and the extent to which greater co-operation between branches of primary care could improve access and reduce workforce shortages.
They also considered the potential for innovation within primary care to transform the provision of services. This included the continuing development of GP Clusters and Multidisciplinary Teams, the success of schemes such as Choose Pharmacy in allowing pharmacists to play a greater role within primary care and the extent to which technological advancements within patient records, appointments and remote consultations are relieving pressures on services.
