  • Will we ever turn the tide of health inequalities?

    5 December 2019

    Reducing health inequalities is central to the NHS Long Term Plan and is arguably the most important indicator of the success of health policy. Yet ten years on from the Marmot Review, health inequalities persist. System leaders will gather on 29 January 2020 to hear from experts in homelessness, women and children’s health, and those responsible for integrated care strategy in STP areas. View the agenda and book now to secure your place at this important event.

  • Making time for clinical directors

    28 November 2019

    A recurring theme in conversations with clinical directors is lack of time for the role. It has become commonplace to refer to funding for the role as sufficient for two days a week, but in fact it is for a 0.25 whole-time equivalent (WTE) role per 50,000 head of population, which is closer to two clinical sessions. For smaller networks covering, say, a 30,000 population, funding would cover only a day or so and while the bigger networks (c100,000) would have enough for 0.5WTE or 2.5 days, clinical directors still face the challenge of squeezing a huge task into a part-time role. Those choosing to allocate two or more days are therefore having to find the time – or the money – elsewhere and are looking to other sources of support, typically dedicated network managers, practice managers or third parties. For information about PCC’s support for clinical directors, including leadership training, coaching and mentoring contact enquiries@pcc-cic.org.uk.
