Health and wellbeing in your neighbourhood
Local GP practices have come together within their geographical areas to form ‘networks’ in which they will work alongside community services to cover populations of around 30,000 to 50,000 people. These networks will become the foundation for the local health and care system of the future, and will be empowered to manage the health of their local populations.
Through these networks we will increase multi-disciplinary working across physical and mental healthcare and also between the health and care sectors. Professionals from a range of disciplines will work together as a team within the neighbourhood network to co-ordinate, manage and deliver the services and support which meets the needs of their local population.
