Since the NHS was created in 1948, the population has grown and people are living longer. Many people are living with long term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, or suffer with mental health issues and may need to access their local health services more often.
To meet these needs, practices have begun working together and with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in primary care networks.
Primary care networks build on the core of current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. Clinicians describe this as a change from reactively providing appointments to proactively care for the people and communities they serve. Where emerging primary care networks are in place in parts of the country, there are clear benefits for patients and clinicians.
Our Primary Care Network is called Healthier South Wirral and includes:
We are committed to working together to improve the health and wellbeing of local people. We want to improve the number of services available to people closer to home whilst also encouraging people to take more responsibility for their own health and wellbeing and to support their friends and family too.
Healthier South Wirral has two Clinical Directors, Dr Thomas Wyatt (GP at The Orchard Surgery) and Dr Nazia Syed-Mohammad (GP at Eastham Group Practice).
Listening to patients will be a critical part of ensuring we get things right so if you want to be involved or want more information please contact the Practice.
We are so excited to share this news with you and we are extremely proud of our teams across our Primary Care Network who have been working very hard and have made this possible for Healthier South Wirral. We take pride in the services we provide for our patients, the partnerships we have with other organisations and the community we have developed along the way between our surgeries! We thank those for the nomination, and for selecting us as winners, we are truly honoured.
