Primary Care – innovations for long term conditions

We are scoping opportunities to support Primary Care and populations of people living with long term conditions in the West of England.

Long term conditions require ongoing, active management that may benefit from innovative approaches in light of changes made due to COVID-19. We are working with our members to identify opportunities to pilot new ways of working. Across the AHSN Network (made up of the 15 AHSNs within England) there are solutions being developed and implemented.

We are inviting expressions of interest from the West of England region to trial these solutions. If you are interested in learning more about this opportunity please contact: ps@weahsn.net

Solutions for those with long term conditions

  1. The first solution which has been shared with our members is from UCL Partners. They are providing a long-term condition management support package based on new pathway development, virtual consultations, digital solutions and optimal use of the wider primary care team. Colleagues from UCL Partners joined a meeting in the West of England to present their management support package. Information slides about this solution are available for download here: UCLPartners LTC framework including diabetes and hypertension
  2. The second solution has been developed at the South West AHSN. They are providing a package of support that uses data visualisation and improvement methodology to drive population health initiatives, at the practice or system level. Information slides on this solution are available for download here: Data Visualisation offer South West 

We are completing initial scoping for this project and are excited by the potential to support our Primary Care colleagues.

This page will be updated as the project develops, so please do check back for new opportunities and updates.
