The National Development of Teaching PCTs : Prime Minister announced development March 2001 3 Pilots: Salford, Bradford City & Sunderland West Potentially 25-30 TPCTs by 2003/4 Guidance issued & bids submitted October 2001 TPCTs emerged as a attempt to meet recruitment & retention problems However now seen as a key driver for local modernisation of primary care – especially in areas of high deprivation Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  3. The Salford model of a Teaching PCT • Is thefocal point for strong primary care learning in a wider area • Learning agenda driven by HR & service needs • Manages Knowledge • Creates new knowledge via R&D • Manages Partnerships and networks • Academia • Confederation • Other Trusts and PCTs • Public • Modernisation of education and learning for PCTs needs Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  4. Benefits of a TPCT : the Salford View More qualified clinicians recruited & retained Investment in primary care learning Career opportunities via flexible employment Joint posts / projects with academia Life long learning linked to Action learning A champion of e-learning and knowledge management Engages the public Enables local PCTs to link to above by specialised management Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  5. 2 Year Project Plan Objectives • Increase number of GP teaching practices: 4 to 10 • Create Teaching & Learning directorate & support infrastructure (including PCT library resources) • PCT staff to access (and trained in) e-evidence base • Development of joint lecturer-Practitioner posts • Workforce Planning and Training Strategies by 2002 • Develop E-learning • Maximisation of income for Education, R&D etc Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  6. Achievements to Date: • Identifiable directorate with director to be appointed Autumn 2001 • A push for all things learning ! • Support for VTS training practices = more training capacity • Increase in Research Capability and Capacity • Joint lecturer-practioner appointment likely in public health • Knowledge Management Strategy developed • Identification of sources of money Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  7. Local Salford Library Context: • Typical PCT – little or no library resources • Large Teaching hospital and HA library resource • Poor access for primary care clinicians • History of some successful pilots (NWRO sponsored E-Stablish) • Problem of raising expectations • Salford & Trafford LIS not focused on library services • Question of strategic vision & co-ordination • Lots of individual projects / investment (e.g IT) Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  8. Primary Care Library Needs • Access to relevant sources • E-library • Books, journals • Professional, qualified librarian support & advice • Training & skills investment • A balance between direct user access & support from librarians • Recurrent Funding • An Organisational Home • Need to build partnership working • Strategic Vision & Leadership Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  9. Developing TPCT Library Services • HA library services will transfer to TPCT • Library services part of Teaching Directorate • Identification of suitable base • car parking, e-suites, training facilities, space • Investment in: • Additional librarian resource • Training • Additional IT equipment • Relevant hard copy Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  10. Concluding Points: • TPCT can act as ‘home’ for PCT library resources in a S.H.A • TPCT will provide leadership & vision • Partnership with local Workforce Confederation • Danger of too many initiatives • A LIS cannot be relied upon to lead • Need for local, SHA and regional leadership • Question of how national & local initiatives work Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT

  11. Lessons Learnt to Date: • Benefit of a TPCT is that it brings an educational, research focus • To be successful a TPCT needs leadership • Importance of interplay between teaching, research & knowledge management and between agencies • Recruitment & retention not only role of a TPCT • Role of organisational learning and action learning strategies • Issues of advocacy a TPCT must stand up for Primary Care Dr Simon Aldridge, Salford PCT
