Primary Care Home

We’re delighted to be selected as a Rapid Test Site for the Primary Care Home. This new model of care enables us as a practice to more actively shape local health services. We want to empower wellbeing through healthy communities.

As a practice our vision is to make general practice better practice, to be a sustainable practice that thrives on innovation and to work with our patients, staff, partners and communities as one team. In spite of working in a challenged health economy, we firmly believe that through strong working relationships across our health and social care system we can deliver a future where the so-called triple aim – reduced cost, improved population health outcomes, and a high quality personal experience are achievable.

We already have a track record for implementing new services that support our patients in their local communities and have demonstrated that good partnership working with our patient groups and with partners can deliver change. That’s why co-production, innovation and sustainability are at the heart of what we’ll do.

Our bid outlines our vision in more detail. Throughout Spring 2016 we’ll be developing this further and are looking to our patients, staff, partners and communities to get involved.
