Primary Care Sheffield (PCS) is a GP led organisation with all independent Sheffield practices holding shares in the company. We aim to improve patient care through a unified supportive approach to general practice. We directly manage seven practices in the city in formal partnership with the Sheffield Health and Social Care NHS Foundation Trust (SHSCT). Our partnership enables us to combine scale and expertise in order to build services which are fit for purpose.
We also provide workforce solutions to practices in the city that include clinical pharmacists, first contact physiotherapists and ECPs. We work with the universities and HEE to support employment opportunities for a range of post registration groups in general practice.
PCS holds a full seat at the city wide Accountable Care Partnership, alongside the three Foundation Trusts, the CCG and the City Council. We have excellent working relationships with each of these organisations and along with the CCG and the LMC we have ensured that general practice will become increasingly important in the development of health and care services in the city.
PCS is also actively working with NHS England to support the development of at scale primary care. We are “buddying” with several other health economies to support them developing their approach to extended access to general practice
Our vision and aspiration is that by working together and working in more flexible and innovative ways, we can deliver improved and sustainable care for patients.
