elderleyImproving Care to Reduce Hospital Admissions

This surgery is participating in a scheme to improve care for patients with multiple medical problems, who may have many services helping to care for them and who are thought to be at risk of needing hospital care in the next year or so.  The aim of the scheme is to help those patients enjoy life as much as they can and ensure that, whenever possible, care is provided at home.  We know that this is what most people want.

The first step of the scheme is to ensure that our records of your contact details are up-to-date and that we have details of family members or carers that might need to be contacted when the patient has need.  To help us do this please ensure we have your up-to-date contact details.

One of our GPs or Practice Nurses will review your medical details and agree a care plan with every identified patient, this maybe by telephone, appointment at the surgery or a home visit.  This work will not reduce the number of appointments available in clinics.

Thank you for your help in making this scheme a success.
