Invite to attend the above seminar, which will be a timely opportunity to examine the ongoing implementation and impact of the Primary Care Model for Wales -a key element of the Transformation Programme in Wales – as the Model undergoes evaluation.

 

To note:

  • The seminar would be of interest to charities, as delegates are expected to assess the role of the third sector in helping implement the new model – with discussion on patient engagement – as well as the move towards a ‘wellness system’ for education, local coordination and issues with accessibility; and
  • There will also be discussion on key issues for the third sector in supporting prevention and community care.

The context for discussion

The conference takes place in the context of issues emerging from recent policy developments, including:

  • The publication of A Healthier Walesby the Welsh Government in 2018 and the initiation of the Transformation Programme to implement this vision;
  • A number of announcements on how the £100mTransformation Fund will allow Regional Partnership Boards to deliver innovative projects across Wales, including projects to innovate within primary care or reduce pressure on primary care services;
  • The report from the Auditor General for Wales finding that the application of the Model was inconsistent, the pace of reform should increase, and that improved engagement is needed with health staff and patients in order to develop a useful understanding of the Model – discussion at this seminar will look at the implementation of the Model going forward, as well as reform more generally and the communication of the Model to staff and the public;
  • The firstHealth and Social Care Workforce Strategyfor Wales, setting out actions required to meet key aims for the workforce for 2030 – with the final strategy from Health Education and Improvement Wales and Social Care Wales due to be published and implemented shortly, after approval from the Welsh Government.

Speakers

There will be keynote addresses from: Jyoti Atri, Executive Director of Health and Wellbeing, Public Health Wales and Alex Howells, Chief Executive, Health Education and Improvement Wales.

Further confirmed speakers include:

  • Jane Sloggett, Deputy Head, Porthcawl Comprehensive School, Bridgend – on the understanding of the Primary Care Model, and the implications of moving towards a ‘wellness system’ for education and children and young people; and
  • Andy Swinburn, Assistant Director, Paramedicine, Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust – on supporting out-of-hours care, in light of the recent introduction of ambulance service prescribing paramedics.

The agenda in summary

  • Improving outcomes in primary care: reducing the impact of poor health and tackling health inequalities;
  • Implementing the new model: creating a ‘wellness’ system, local coordination and accessibility;
  • Supporting and developing the Welsh primary care workforce and the first Health and Social Care Workforce Strategy;
  • Key issues for developing in-hours delivery and out-of-hours primary care: sustainability, access and support; and
  • The future for primary and community services in Wales.

The details: areas for discussion at this conference

Prevention

Discussion is expected to look at the latest work on prevention from key organisations such as Public Health Wales – including reducing the impact of poor health and tackling health inequalities across communities in Wales.

Delegates will discuss ongoing work to improve outcomes and share best practice across clusters, whilst taking into account differing clinical priorities.

Awareness and understanding of the Model

Sessions also examine the accessibility of the new Primary Care Model for Wales for all sectors, in health and social care, key partners and the wider public.

Local and community projects and co-ordination

As Wales aims to move towards a ‘wellness system’ – anticipating and meeting health needs and focusing on prevention and early detection of illness – those attending will examine work to bring services from hospitals into communities and ensure local health and social care services coordinate effectively, including efforts to provide a seamless overall service for patients.

Delegates will also consider the implications of the wellness system for key demographics, and the potential contribution of community projects related to social prescribing, for example aiming to reduce loneliness and isolation.

 

 

 

Workforce

The agenda also looks at what is needed to support and develop the primary care workforce – in the context of ongoing processes such as the adoption of the multi-disciplinary team approach, informed by projects from the Pacesetters Programme.

Delegates will also examine the potential opportunities and challenges presented by the first Health and Social Care Workforce Strategy, and we are delighted to include Alex Howells, Chief Executive, Health Education and Improvement Wales as a keynote speaker, with the Strategy being led by HEIW and Social Care Wales.

In- and out-of-hours delivery

Further sessions assess challenges and opportunities around developing the sustainability of in-hours delivery and access to care, as well as supporting out-of-hours primary care, in light of recent developments such as the introduction of ambulance service prescribing paramedics.

Delegates will consider the impact of primary care reform on mental health services and arrangements, for example local suicide prevention plans.

The agenda has been structured following consultation with officials at Public Health Wales, the Welsh Government and from health boards in Wales. The draft agenda is copied below my signature, and a regularly updated version is available to download here. The seminar is organised on the basis of strict impartiality by the Policy Forum for Wales. Follow us @PFWEvents for live updates.
