Primary care networks are based on GP registered lists, typically serving local communities of around 30,000 to 50,000. As primary care networks develop they will ultimately comprise of multidisciplinary teams such as physiotherapists, social prescribers, pharmacists, paramedics and community nurses. The Networks should be small enough to provide personalised care, but large enough to benefit from economies of scale, through better collaboration between GP practices and community care providers. Locally practices have come together in 6 networks:
- Rochdale North
- The Bridge
Initially all practices are providing extended hours for their own patients. Please contact your practice / see your practice website for details of when these sessions are held.
Further information will be added as network services develop.
