Evolving general practice

At the RCGP, we want to ensure that new approaches and technologies are developed with general practice to address the pressing needs in care delivery. We have launched Evolving General Practice, a new initiative to look at new approaches and technologies and how they could impact primary care.

We use round table discussions as a forum to bring together representatives from NHS, industry, and research with GPs, patients and carers. These discussions feed into our reports, project work, guidance and educational resources.

Artificial Intelligence

We have produced an Artificial Intelligence and Primary Care [PDF] report to inform GPs and healthcare professionals of the impact of Artificial Intelligence in primary care. We are exploring the effect this technology might have on general practice and how the College can facilitate, maximise the benefits and minimise its risks. It’s important that those involved in delivering care have the opportunity to understand, influence and co-develop the future tools for general practice.

We are inviting clinicians and healthcare professionals in primary care to provide insight on how AI will impact them. You can do this by confidentially submitting your questions on the use of AI in health and social care through our survey. Your responses will help shape educational materials on artificial intelligence.

Digital nurse champions in primary care 

The RCGP has collaborated with the Northern Staffordshire technology enabled care service (TECS) team to produce the report Creating digital champions in primary care. The full report presents the collated findings of evaluation feedback submitted by participants of the Northern Staffordshire TECS team’s action learning set (ALS) programme. The ALS programme aimed to upskill general practice nurses so that they were able to confidently promote the use of digital technology to patients and colleagues. The report looks at data collected from ALS sessions between November 2018 to April 2019, submitted by 75 participating GPNs from across four delivery boards in England. In addition, a shorter rapid review report has been produced which focuses on some of the key findings from the use of an ALS approach to digitally upskilling GPNs.
