The Primary Care Capability Service Level Alliance improves the patient experience by providing leadership to activities that support coordination and integration across primary care. 

The SLA focuses on providing strategic system leadership to enhancing and supporting the capability and capacity of general practice, and ‘future’ general practice (as opposed to the traditional models) that enables the provision of care that delivers a better patient experience.

The SLA was established in March 2018 by bringing together a number of elements and enablers from across the Canterbury health system that include Collaborative Care and the Integrated Family Health Service, Enhanced Capitation and its associated work groups and pharmacy.

Key Messages: PCC SLA 28 December 2018

| Return|

A presentation on Enhanced Capitation provided background information to the Primary Care Capability SLA and prompted discussion on different funding approaches including how to determine the outcomes of the Enhanced Capitation initiative. 
A draft paper proposing a revised approach to operationalising Canterbury's IFHS programme was tabled, with minor edits required ahead of it being presented for endorsement to the Alliance Leadership Team in December.     
Further  insights were provided on the pressures on Primary Care / general practice and the response to addressing these pressures. 
It is anticipated the executive group from the PCC SLA will identify the emerging themes from last 8 months discussions, and take these back to the PCC SLA group for refinement, ahead of the development of a  cohesive work plan.
