PCNs Empowering Communities Posted on 7 Sep 2020

Following on from our first People and Communities Forum on 31 July we are continuing our work with a series of short films from the perspective of different members of the PCN Team from practice colleagues, patients and partners.  The films will outline how we work with our patients, their families and the wider community, the impact COVID has had and how we plan to work differently post COVID.

We will be sharing the films as part of a designated week entitled ‘PCN’s Empowering Communities’.  The week will run from Monday, 28 September to Friday, 2 October.

We would really like you to feature in one of our films.  Please see brief below.

Theme: PCN’s Empowering Communities

Duration: Between 5-10 minutes

Approach: Your approach to filming is up to you.  You can either prepare something beforehand to talk about or this can be presented in interview style with a member of the Healthwatch Team asking questions for you to respond to.

Topics: How you are supporting local people in the East eg Stronger Stainforth, Peer Support Groups, etc and the potential positive impact this may have on patients.

Vanessa/Jess (Well Doncaster): How you are supporting local people in the East eg Stronger Stainforth, Peer Support Groups, etc and the potential positive impact this may have on patients.

Lynn/Sarah (PCN Social Prescribing Link Workers): Outline the roles you play and wow you see your roles supporting general practice.

Joanna (PCN Clinical Pharmacist):  How your role has supported a different way of working in general practice and how you think this can benefit patients.

Practice Managers: Digital approaches – how COVID has ‘fast tracked’ remote consultations, online booking and prescriptions.  How you think this has benefited general and patients.  How you see this continuing post COVID. We are looking for a volunteer PM so please let me know if you would be happy to take part.

Dr Shah: How you see the involvement of patients and local communities supporting the PCN in its ongoing development.
