Maximising our achievements through shared purpose
Many of the interventions around general practice at scale to date have taken a ‘top-down’ approach, led by organisations or structures and without a clear purpose of what’s trying to be achieved – very much focused on form and structure. Our approach to collaborating means it is far more relevant for mainstream general practice and as a consequence we see much better results.
Our specific methodology makes sense to GP practices as we understand the importance of spending time together and listening to what matters to each other in the room –what are the shared problems that practices want to fix and using this conversation to bind the group together, ultimately creating a shared purpose. By investing in that early time together we really catalyse the decision making process and maximise what’s achievable further down the line.
Because of that shared purpose, trust and leadership is developed at such an early stage, we can really embed success in to the programme. It’s what makes our approach really different to others and achieves us increasing recognition, backed by popular thought as the best way to approach at-scale working.
