Development of GP locality networks in a single CCG: Mid & South Essex STP


Development of GP locality networks in a single CCG


Southend CCG appointed Attain to support the development of collaborative primary care working-at-scale within local GP practices.
This involved:

  • Working in partnership with the local authority to ensure harmonisation with the evolving service model for complex care
  • Ensuring that locally determined priorities were identified alongside national priorities outlined in the GP Forward View

What we did

Our support involved:

  • Identified local demographic and health outcome related drivers for service change and shared these with GP practices to provide context for the discussions about service development
  • Undertook a genuine process of co-production and developed service models, service specifications and business cases for new locality-based services
  • We established locality group project teams and drafted an initial MoU for GP practices to work together on a locality basis

Our impact

Our results included:

  • A local GP practice acted as host employer for a locality-wide home visiting & triage service with implementation overseen by the locality group
  • An extended access hub model was developed and implementation overseen by the CCG primary care team
  • A robust collaborative working model was established in one locality which will be spreading to the remaining three areas
