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