Description : The job exists to ensure the effective communication and engagement on of the development, delivery and implementation of the Primary Care Improvement Plan (PCIP), supporting the delivery Lanarkshire Healthcare Strategy, 'Achieving Excellence' (2017), with the media, staff, the public and other external stakeholders.
The overall aim of the PCIP is to oversee the implementation of modernised, redesigned and integrated health & social care services responsive to the needs of the local population by ensuring the highest quality of care within the financial resources available.
In the development of new ways of working in primary care we are in diagnostic and testing phase to examine other clinical and service models, adopting an approach that places the person at the centre of care, dismantles the traditional interfaces, utilises the entire assets within communities and directs professionals to where they may have the most significant impact on patient care.
Our approach acknowledges that it is no longer acceptable to simply tinker at the edges of care; for this to have an impact that is likely to have the necessary effect, a truly transformational approach to developing new models of care is required.
