We will further strengthen primary care and provide more care within local communities

We will…

  • Support further development of our primary care networks. This will help GP practices to work better together to meet the needs of their communities.
  • Further develop our neighbourhood care teams – teams of different health professionals – to provide more support in the community. Particularly for people with long term physical and mental health conditions.
  • Support families with maternity services, before and after they have their baby, making sure there is continuity of care across hospital and community settings. 
  • Provide better support for people who are elderly or frail – making sure they spend as little time away from home as possible and helping them to return to their normal lifestyle where possible.
