As part of the General Practice Development Programme, Bury CCG took up the support offer for Productive General Practice (PGP) Quick Start.



PGP Quick Start is an on-site, hands-on, short term support package for practices that forms part of a local Time for Care programme. It aims to help practices release time for care through High Impact Action 5: Productive Work Flows, and High Impact Action 10: Develop Quality Improvement Expertise.

In just eight weeks practice improvements included:

  • two hours per day of GP time saved
  • 650 hours per annum of admin time saved
  • progression from a ‘requires improvement’ CQC rating to ‘Good’ due in part to PGP Quick Start.

This film shares Bury’s story and the positive impact PGP Quick Start has made for practice teams.
