Project Description

Primary care at scale business case review

Norwich CCG

Objectives

Attain was commissioned to review the business case and proposed business model created by the Norwich primary care federation​.

This included:

  • Working within the NHS guidance and contractual allowances to provide potential options and routes to achievement of the desired options​
  • Reviewing the legal advice previously obtained by the federation organisation to understand their response​

  • Provide a justified synopsis appraisal of the option and desired outcome(s) / timelines​

What we did

Our support included:

  • Provided a detailed understanding of the outcomes desired, by:
    • Merging existing primary care contracts (both GMS and PMS) into an organisation that operated primary care at scale​
    • Using the current organisational form and partner limitations to derive a solution
  • Developed an objective review of the legal advice received previously​

  • Created a series of risks, caveats, acceptances, understandings and details that were critical to success​

  • Created a document that explained and graphically demonstrated all of these options and routes in a simplistic and condensed manner​

Our impact

Our results included:

  • Provided detailed feedback on outcomes of review to the CCG and federation leaders ​
  • Reported all risks and caveats to ensure greater understanding and potential pitfalls ​

  • Reports and documents were created, shared and tele-conferenced with clients to communicate the outcomes and their next steps both internally and with partners including NHS England​
