Having worked with and in primary care for the last 30 years, Hilary has experienced and lived though many policy iterations and organisational restructures. The current policy agenda is the most far reaching and exciting for many years. The speed with which PCNs have come into existence is without comparison yet this comes at a time when primary care is at its most vulnerable in terms of increasing workload and decreasing workforce. Being embedded in PCNs and GP Federations covering two adjacent, yet completely different, geographic areas Hilary is uniquely placed to understand the reality of PCN life which is often quite different to the NHS England narrative.
