Skill Mix Matrix
The terms ‘working at scale’ and ‘new models of care’ have been freely talked about, discussed and form a large part of the General Practice Forward View.
There are workforce tools available that practices can access to make comparisons around which members of the team could provide which services. They also address what training individuals require and importantly how much would that member of staff cost. This mapping exercise aims to complement those already available.
It is only with all this information to hand that practices and localities can start to plan on what their future structures could or should look like.
We hope it helps and we will, of course, keep it up to date!
