We work with people leading and supporting GP Cluster working to share learning that improves the implementation and development of GP Clusters
Established in 2016, GP clusters were created to encourage GPs to take part in quality improvement activity with their peers and to contribute to the oversight and development of their local healthcare system.
In April 2022 we published the GP Cluster Working Learning Cycle report, which aimed to develop a better understanding of what is required for effective cluster working and to assist reflection on the next steps. One of the gaps identified in the report was the need for national CQL/PQL networking opportunities to enable sharing of learning, peer support and spread of good practices.
The GP Cluster Improvement Network enables CQLs, PQLs and those supporting cluster working to share learning that improves the implementation and development of GP clusters.
Support for people leading or supporting GP cluster working
We support those involved in GP cluster working by:
- organising three network sessions per year to facilitate learning and networking amongst those involved in cluster working
- hosting and promoting a dedicated MS Teams channel to support ongoing networking, peer support and sharing of learning in between network meetings
- promoting the growth of the network and encouraging members to take on roles as contributors and co-producers, and
- producing learning summaries highlighting examples of successful approaches to cluster working.
You can get involved in the GP Cluster Improvement Network by:
- participating in network sessions
- joining and contributing to the conversations in the dedicated MS Teams channel for the network - click to register to join the MS Teams
- reading our GP Cluster Working Learning Cycle report to learn about strategies for successful cluster working
- reading our learning summary about how Perth and Kinross HSCP used the report to support cluster working locally, and
- reading the event summaries from our first three network sessions.
