The service provides specialist early intervention - basic / first contact physiotherapy management advice, education, information – PDF leaflets via AccuRx, and online exercise programmes, accessible to the patients for up to 6 weeks.
Grace Threlfall is the care coordinator for care homes, she will be involved in coordinating MDT's (multidisciplinary teams) for care home patients for all our PCN care homes. She is also assisting with Covid Phase 3 (boosters and third vaccines).
All of our Practices share a Social Prescribing Link Worker.
Link workers give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.
Our Mental Health Practitioner provides assessment, interventions and support for people with mental health issues that can be managed within primary care
Every Practice within our PCN has a Clinical Pharmacist.
They work directly as part of your GP team to make sure your medicines help you to get better and stay well. Having a Clinical Pharmacist in our GP team means you can be treated by the best person to meet your needs.
