The NHS Long Term Plan underpins the importance of technology in the future NHS; setting out the critical priorities that will support digital transformation and provide a step change in the way the NHS cares for citizens.
With advancing technology and emerging models of care, primary care organisations, in particular GP practices, are at risk of falling behind without the right centralised support to digitalise their offer to patients.
So, if you’re the lead GP or manager of a Primary Care Network (PCN) or GP Federation, you’re probably looking for ways to:
The good news is, PrimaryWeb enables your organisation to do all this and more.
As part of wider changes to support the New Care Model Strategy, General Practitioner Council (GPC) England and NHS England have stipulated a requirement to develop a standard specification for IT systems in primary care, including websites and intranets.
PrimaryWeb has been developed by the Communications and Engagement team at Midlands and Lancashire Commissioning Support Unit (MLCSU), which, as part of the NHS, works closely with NHS Digital to ensure your practices can access the latest technology.
PrimaryWeb offers exclusive discounts to practices through their PCN or GP Federation. This approach is reflective of the changing landscape within the primary care sector and encourages greater collaboration between practices in the procurement of digital services.
By coming together and purchasing services as a collective, PrimaryWeb enables your practices to access the latest website and intranet functionality at heavily discounted rates compared to if they were to purchase it individually from different providers.
From simply checking opening times and requesting repeat prescriptions, through to logging on to book appointments and have a video call with their GP, patients are increasingly interacting with their local practices using the web to access the information they need.
Recognising traditional channels such as telephone and face-to-face still have a big part to play, PrimaryWeb has been designed to help your practices provide patients and staff with a truly multi-channel experience that’s fully optimised for both mobile and tablet.
As well as providing digital solutions for individual practices, PrimaryWeb can also offer websites and intranets for PCNs and GP Federations too. Whether it’s a standalone presence you’re after or a networked solution to link in with your individual practices.
