Neighbourhoods and communities

Neighbourhoods and communities

At a neighbourhood level, our GP practices have come together as Primary Care Networks (PCNs) to cover populations of 30-50,000 patients.

These networks will become the foundations on which we will continue to develop and establish opportunities to meet our local population's health and wellbeing needs.

Our neighbourhood plans and ambitions

Our neighbourhood plans will look at how we provide a more comprehensive range of services, using the skills of a greater range of professionals and working closely with other services in the community through multidisciplinary teams.

Our ambition is to work in partnership with our colleagues across the health and care system to evolve and develop integrated neighbourhood teams with shared ownership for improving health and wellbeing. We want to understand the root causes of health inequalities and adopt a population-based approach, aligning our health services to address them.
