There are a number of issues that are currently dominating my life and these include:

I am please to promote one meeting and an initiative aimed at the younger GPs.

The annual George Swift Lecture

The Wessex Faculty of the RCGP and Wessex LMCs have always enjoyed a good relationship and have worked together on a number of initiatives in the past. The issues that I have listed above are  a common agenda that we share with the RCGP and locally we are exploring how we can work together to maximise the benefits for local GPs and Practices.

It is therefore a significant achievement not only to attract the Chair of the GPC Dr Chaand Nagpaul to give the annual George Swift lecture but there will also have the newly elected Chair of  the RCGP  Prof Helen Stokes-Lampard at the same event.

I would strongly advise as many GPs as possible to attend this event. Details on how to book a place are detailed below. Please join the Wessex Faculty for an evening of RCGP and GPC questions and answers. Question Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chair of RCGP Council on anything you wish from assessment and quality improvement to our vision for the future of General practice and the NHS. 

This lecture, "Safety, Quality and Sustainability Solutions to the GP Crisis" will feature what needs to happen to address the current unprecedented pressures in general practice: unimaginable increases in demand and workload, a GP workforce crisis with problems of recruitment and retention, and its practices increasingly vulnerable. The presentation will focus on solutions and approaches to enable GP practices to provide safe, quality care and be sustainable.

Venue:   Chilworth Manor, Chilworth, Southampton, Hampshire, SO16 7PT

Dr Chaand Nagpaul has been a GP for the past 26 years and is a senior partner in his practice in Stanmore, North London. He is Chair of the British Medical Association's General Practitioners Committee (GPC), having been elected to this position on 2013. He has been a member of the GPC since 1996 during which he has sat on 11 different committees and chaired two of them, and was a UK Negotiator between 2007 and 2013. He has been a Local Medical Committee (LMC) member for over 20 years and vice-chairman for the past 12. Chaand is a BMA Council member, a member of its Political Board as well as being Honorary Secretary of his local BMA Division. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of General Practitioners and a past member of its Council.  Chaand was awarded a CBE in 2015 for his services to primary care.

Prof Helen Stokes-Lampard is Chair of the RCGP Council. She is a GP Partner at Cloisters Medical Practice in Lichfield. She has been active in primary Care research and teaching at the University of Birmingham since 2000. She was previously Honorary Treasurer at the RCGP. One of her priorities is the delivery of the GP Forward View and the commitment of an extra £2.4 billion a year to support GP services. 

Please join the Wessex Faculty for an evening of RCGP and GPC questions and answers. Question Helen Stokes-Lampard, Chair of RCGP Council on anything you wish from assessment and quality improvement to our vision for the future of General practice and the NHS. 

 

Next Generation GP - information for participants

I  wanted to let you know about a free programme that  has been set up for emerging leaders in primary care, please see attached flyer.

It is  aimed at GP trainees and newly qualified GPs. The core of the programme is a series of regular evening events in London, beginning at the end of February. At each event we will be interviewing an inspiring GP leader, and complementing it with a workshop to increase knowledge of the wider system.

Wessex LMCs would like to support up to 3 successful GPs  in terms of covering the costs of travel and accommodation if needed.  If you are successful in gaining a place on this programme and would like to apply for financial support please contact me by email - nigel.watson@wessexlmcs.org.uk - this will be on the first come first serve basis.

Best wishes
