Next Generation GP Essex

2 EditedEssex began on Tuesday night, 27th November, at the newly built Medical School at Anglia Ruskin University. Medical students, GP trainees and recently qualified GPs all attended the fully funded national leadership programme that will run monthly until March 2019. Next Gen GP has already been rolled out in over 10 locations around England and we were delighted to be able to help bring it to Essex.

The evening included presentations from Dr Brian Balmer, CEO, Essex LMCs and Karen Kirkham, ICS Clinical Lead, Dorset CCG NHSE National Clinical Advisor Primary Care. We also heard from the team bringing Next Generation GP to Essex who shared their journey and motivation for working in primary care.

Dr Brian Balmer, spoke of how we need to adapt the way GPs are practising for the next generation. He inspired the attendees to not be afraid to make change and that the future of general practice was really in their hands.

Karen Kirkham, discussed the integrated care system in Dorset and how multi-disciplinary teams work across the county. Karen also spoke of her leadership journey and encouraged the audience to grab any opportunities they have to learn and to develop themselves as individuals. After the evening Karen shared this message, “A privilege to spend the evening having a great conversation with the next generation of committed, enthusiastic GPs of Essex who will help shape their future.”

We are looking forward to hearing from Dr Robert Varnam and Professor Nick Harding OBE on 11th November.
