Advanced Training Practice Scheme So what!!! From Idea to Industrialisation to Normalisation Dr Pete Lane and Christine Peake ATP Scheme Leads Health Education Yorkshire and Humber March 2015
What do we know? Not enough GP’s Not enough Practice Nurses/ANP’s/HCA’s Increasing demand Financial Constraints
The Workforce Double Whammy!! We are struggling to deliver our current service The intention is to shift more services from secondary to primary care
Yorkshire and Humber Risk of Retirement There are 80 people (27% of total workforce) aged over 55 in the area. The following staff groups face risk of retirement - 22% (15.6 FTE) of GPs; -23% (7.8 FTE) of Practice Nurses; -19% (3.3 FTE) of Direct Patient Care staff; -32% (49.3 FTE) of Practice Management staff; -19% (1.2 FTE) of Apprentices. Data from a Local Yorkshire CCG’s
Yorkshire and Humber Clinical staff per 1,000 patients Is your practice resilient? Data from a Local Yorkshire CCG
Evolving Workforce Configurations The Toblerone Manoeuvre
Where’s the Cavalry? Recycling existing workforce Poaching from each other We need urgent transformational change
FACT The vast majority of student nurses don’t realise that Practice Nursing exists as a career choice!!
The Advanced Training Practice Scheme “Grow your own” From Idea to Industrialisation to Normalisation
The ATP Model Goal: Every u/g student nurse to have a substantive placement in General Practice 8 Hub Practices set up providing regional coverage Each Hub recruits a network of spoke practices (similar to VTS model) Hub patch to be 20+ practices Admin funding from Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber and tariff payments to practices taking student nurses All placements minimum of 6 weeks
Where are we now? 130 Practices involved to date Over 300 nurse placements anticipated 2014/2015 Superb student and mentor evaluations Strong network with quarterly steering groups and bi-annual workshops Aftersales services – Preceptorship programmes Facebook – dating agency
Activity Delivering growth in very difficult times. It ain’t easy !!
Key Achievements Sustainable model capable of national roll-out Cultural Shift – dispelled the myth that new practice nurses need post qualification secondary care experience - they don’t !! Conversion rate – nearly 40 Nurses in GPN posts straight from qualification. Expecting significant increase. HSJ Award – National Winner Workforce Category
….to summarise The problem is now If General Practice doesn’t engage with this there will be no cavalry to fix our workforce crisis Practice Nurses and HCA’s are brilliant and crucial to the future of Primary Care……….but we need loads more!!
….the ask Be relentless in getting the workforce message out there to all GP’s Practice Managers, Practice Nurse teams and CCG’s If you don’t have an ATP type model in your area consider how to develop one. If you do then get involved in “growing your own” Be active in unleashing and shaping the massive educational potential the GPN community holds Thank you and Questions
