Latham House are pleased to announce that we are now part of Melton, Syston and the Vale Primary Care Network (PCN), joining forces with Jubilee Medical Practice, County Medical Practice and the Vale Medical Group to provide care across the community.
From the 1st July 2019, GP practices began working together and with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas in primary care networks.
Together they collaborate to maximise the services they are going to provide for their local patients to prevent and manage ill-health and promote well-being.
NHS England explain “Primary care networks build on the core of current primary care services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised, coordinated and more integrated health and social care. Clinicians describe this as a change from re actively providing appointments to proactively care for the people and communities they serve. Where emerging primary care networks are in place in parts of the country, there are clear benefits for patients and clinicians.”
