Scaling up general practice: are we up to the challenge?

1 February 2016 Forum Lecture Theatre, The Medical School, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham B15 2TT

This public seminar forms part of a series of research-based events that the Health Services Management Centre at the University of Birmingham is running for the NHS clinical and managerial community in the West Midlands.    

In this seminar, Dr Rebecca Rosen, Senior Fellow at the Nuffield Trust, will set out her analysis of the development of ‘at scale’ primary care organisations in the UK and overseas, drawing on the Nuffield Trust’s current national research study into the development and activity of twelve of these ‘scaled up’ models of general practice. Rebecca will focus on examining what these developments mean for general practice and primary care, considering whether the aims of such moves to ‘scaled up primary care’ are realistic and achievable. Please see the attached flyer for more information.

The event runs from 5 - 6.15pm, and tea and coffee will be available for delegates from 4.30pm.
