GP retention toolkit
As part of its ongoing commitment to make general practice a great place to work, NHS England and Improvement have provided £12 million to support local efforts to encourage GPs to stay working in the profession and stem the flow of those leaving. This is supported by a toolkit, which sets out the key learning from NHS England’s retention programme and includes recommended approaches and key areas to focus on. There is also a video about the lessons learnt from intensive support sites which NHSE/I funded, featuring The Black Country from the Midlands region alongside two other STPs.
You can access the toolkit and video via NHS England’s website at https://www.england.nhs.uk/gp/gpfv/workforce/retaining-the-current-medical-workforce/making-general-practice-a-better-place-to-work/.

CCG Governing Body
CCG Governing Body meeting took place this Tuesday 16 July. There were three papers presented:
- The Accountable Officer report confirmed that the CCG has been rated as Requires Improvement, moving up from Inadequate and we maintained our green rating for patient engagement.
- The Decommissioning Recommendations – revised recommendations were approved for ceasing a small number of grants and contracts, to renegotiate, or look at pathway redesign.
- We set out the process for an eight week clinically led programme, supported by the new STP Joint Clinical Group that Mark Sanderson leads to work on rapid redesign of JET, the neuro-rehab and ophthalmology.
