The overarching Partnership organisation sits subtly in the background for the patient experience. Patients remain registered at one site from where they continue to receive their care and see the same doctors, nurses and practice staff.
The key benefits of the WFHP organisation are the ability to sit behind the scenes offering knowledge, expertise, processes and systems together with the opportunity of resource sharing across all the sites. We can use our joint resources to develop new services and try new and better approaches to meet the changing needs of our patients.
Our Core Services
All five sites provide core general practice appointments. Our primary healthcare team is led by our GP partners, working with our highly skilled clinical colleagues who include, Advanced Nurse Practitioners, Practice Nurses, Physician Associates, GP Associates, Nurse Associates, Healthcare Assistants, Pharmacists, Pharmacy Technicians, Physiotherapists and Mental Health Nurses.
In addition our sites provide some additional appointments after 6.30pm and some Saturday mornings across our sites.
Home Visiting Service
This service is now available in all sites. The focus of the visiting service is to improve continuity of care for the patients who need it the most. Each site has dedicated clinical nurses who offer a specialist home visiting service supported by GPs at their site.
The partnership also provides specialist services such as:
- In-house Pharmacist;
- Minor Operations;
- Joint Injections;
- Wound Care;
- Micro suction;
- Mental Health Care and Counsellors;
- Specialist long term condition clinics for patients with conditions such as Asthma, COPD and Diabetes.
- Social Prescribing and Life Style advisors.
We aim to provide continuity of care for our patients where possible.
