Free NHS England sessions teach GP practices to ‘release capacity’



NHS England is hosting a series of roadshows around the country for GPs to learn how to ‘release capacity’ in their practices.

The free workshops, which are being run during this month and next, would be an opportunity for GPs to ‘hear about successful innovations’ in other practices and see how they may themselves implement these, NHS England suggested.

It said it would also be an opportunity for GPs to meet their local NHS England representatives and ‘learn about the national programme to release pressure’.

NHS England, which is cooperating with the BMA on the roadshows, said: ‘Attendees will leave with new understanding of the evidence about bureaucracy and potentially avoidable demand, insights into solutions being implemented around the country, and a practical plan for action.’

The afternoon sessions also see attendees provided with free lunch and refreshments, NHS England added.
