This network is aimed at GPs to build Dermatology capacity and skills within their own practices. The service model has already developed an accredited training package to support GPs, increase capability and ensure good clinical governance across the service.
Project ECHO will promote an active learning environment ensuring the transfer of knowledge across three LCG areas to establish a GP community of expertise and promote greater networks between Primary and Secondary Care. The service model is predicated on peer review between participating GPs but in particular within practices to ensure the safe management of patients with dermatological conditions in a sustainable way.
