Practices have been identified and selected within each Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) area in the West of England to form the first cohort of the Primary Care Collaborative (PCC). The PCC forms part of the West of England Academic Health Science Network Patient Safety Collaborative which endeavours to enhance the safety of our patients whilst in healthcare services.
This event will bring those practices together to determine the collaborative objectives, discuss incident reporting and deliver Quality Improvement training which will enable practices to begin to undertake their own improvement journeys.
A draft agenda is currently being developed and will be available soon.

Your involvement in this scheme will be invaluable in helping your practice in its next Care Quality Commission inspection and will contribute to the revalidation and appraisal process for all staff.
You’ll receive quality improvement methodology training and resources to help support and assist you in undertaking your own improvement journey.
The PCC will increase awareness amongst your team of the patient safety agenda, while promoting an open and honest culture.
