Alastair Buxton, the head of NHS services at the Pharmaceutical Services Negotiating Committee (PSNC), will now be joining us for the discussion on better aligning services across primary care – and looking ahead to CCGs potentially commissioning pharmacy from 2016/17.

Chair of the College of Social Work Jo Cleary will be discussing how CCGs and local authorities can move towards greater levels of integration between GP services and social care providers.

Commissioning Primary Care aims to set the scene for the launch of co-commissioning in April 2015, with a focused examination of the key issues for all CCGs. The conference combines high-level debate of the main strategic challenges, with practical advice and innovative ways of tackling the tough problems now being faced by general practice.

Further speakers now confirmed for the event include Dr Julia Simon, head of co-commissioning of primary care and commissioning development at NHS England, Professor Clare Gerada chair of NHS England’s Primary Care Clinical Board for London, Holly Holder from the Nuffield Trust, Professor Ruth Chambers from Stoke-on-Trent CCG, and Dr Phil McCarthy from the innovative practice federation GP Care.
