Dr Chowhan interviewed Dr Langdon for the second episode of Primary Care Talks

The Eastern Academic Health Science Network has today released the second podcast in the series that explores innovative ways of managing primary care under pressure.

In this episode our host, Dr Hasan Chowhan, chats to Dr Miles Langdon of Lakeside Healthcare about how he is making the NHS Primary Care Home model work in England’s largest GP super-partnership. Dr Langdon reveals helpful insights into how he is setting up his organisation to work more efficiently and productively for the 160,000 patients they support.

Each episode of the podcast aims to uncover the secrets of successful primary care teams working in the NHS today. Our Primary Care Talks host, Dr Hasan Chowhan, interviews fellow GPs to find out about some of the smartest approaches to improving efficiency and productivity, and driving the future of healthcare.

Dr Hasan Chowhan is the primary care lead for the Eastern AHSN, is a GP principal in Colchester, Chair of NHS North East Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and examiner for the Royal College of General Practitioners.

Victoria Corbishley, Director of Transformation at the Eastern AHSN, said:

“The phrase ‘If general practice fails, the whole NHS fails’ has been widely used in recent times. Primary Care Talks provides an interesting, fun and convenient way to share important learning between health and care professionals. Each episode focuses on innovative ways to make their working lives easier, and patient services stronger for the future. Busy people can download and listen when it suits them. We hope that this series will inspire listeners, help to spread best practice and encourage necessary change.”

Primary Care Talks podcasts are published monthly, available to download via the Eastern AHSN website  and also available on iTunes.

The Eastern AHSN production team is keen to hear from people working in primary care who are running innovative local initiatives. If you would like to be featured in a future podcast, please email
