From 1 July 2024, Pinnacle is changing the focus of the quality plan to support capacity and capability building in general practice. There will also be a change to how quality plan funds are allocated. This funding is not attached to targets, and will enable you to build capacity.
We’re excited to launch the new practice system support service, which went live this month, as the first point of contact for the network, serving as subject matter experts in various general practice business processes, and supporting practices with new initiatives.
Katoa, a new customised app, will make it easier for Pinnacle staff and the Midlands Health Network to learn and use Māori language, culture and customs in their day-to-day work. Katoa aims to support Pinnacle’s efforts to build a culturally aware health workforce across the network.
Since 2009 when we held the last full Pinnacle workforce survey, the primary care landscape has changed considerably.
