Primary Care Talks podcast released today to share innovation in primary care

We have produced our fourth podcast in the series that explores innovative ways of managing primary care under pressure.

  • Primary Care Talks is aimed at frontline primary care professionals
  • Podcasts designed to share best practice and support change

In this episode our host, Dr Hasan Chowhan meets St Albans GP and consultant Dr Steve Laitner to delve into some of Steve’s innovative approaches to delivering more proactive primary care. Steve uses population management techniques to help create a more tailored approach that caters better for each individual patient’s needs.

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, 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 and are available to download via our website or 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
