Releasing Time for Care

Fundamentals of Change and Improvement

The ‘Fundamentals of Change and Improvement’ is a short programme for those working in general practice, including GPs, practice managers, nurses, senior admin, project managers and facilitators, working directly with general practice to support the General Practice Forward View and the Time for Care programme.

‘Fundamentals of Change and Improvement’ will show step-by-step how to use a number of tools and techniques, helping to build skills and confidence to make changes in your practice. Participants will need to bring a live change project to work on during the programme. It is strongly recommended that projects are focused, enabling you to apply the learning, for example reducing the amount of correspondence handled by GPs, establishing care navigation, improving approach to care planning, improving the practice’s repeat prescribing system etc.
