Andrew Lansley, the Secretary of State for Health visited Nene Commissioning on Thursday 28 October. Mr Lansley came to see examples of the work our GPs have been doing and to talk about our progress towards becoming a new GP Commissioning Consortium. This follows the publication of the Government's reforms for the NHS in July.
He was met by a number of local GPs and given a demonstration of PathFinder (the web-based tool which helps GPs make appropriate referrals for their patients). Dr James Findlay, who developed PathFinder, was on hand to give the Minister a virtual tour of the tool.
Mr Lansley was also shown one of our Pro-Active Care teams in action and we took the opportunity to talk to him about the soon-to-be-launched community services for people at the end of their lives.
The Secretary of State's visit featured on BBC Look East that evening alongside an interview with Mr Jon Barratt, a patient of Pro-Active Care, who was seen getting his weekly "MOT" from community matron Michelle Holmes.
