Somerset Together - Yes But are We?

Somerset LMC event

Times: 19:30 - 21:30

An exploration of the implications of the proposed outcome based commissioning contract

A hot supper will be provided, at 18.45

We believe it is fair to say that there still remains a wide variation in understanding of and commitment to OBC amongst us all.  The LMC feel that now is the right time to have a Practice-only LMC-organised meeting to discuss where practices are with this. 

The meeting will consist of a brief presentation regarding OBC and will attempt to present some facts from all points of view to provide some framework from which we hope there will be open but managed discussion. We are particularly interested in hearing from the voices that do not normally speak up.  GP and Practice Managers who have more experience of all sides of the arguments will be present to be called on for ‘points of information’ as required by the meeting but formal presentations, apart from that initially made from the Chair, will be resisted.

The aim of the meeting is to share information about OBC and to gauge which way Practices may go at this stage. We hope that frank discussion will inform and empower Practices to make the right choice for their organisation whatever that may be. A stated aim of the meeting is to present a list of questions to the CCG for formal response.
