Our Health Partnership is a solution to the challenges every GP practice faces today. The challenges of funding, workload and workforce pressures are tackled with specialised central services and a collaborative partnership led by dedicated healthcare professionals. GP’s that join us will find that they have a voice in an ever changing local and national healthcare economy, with a strong organisation positioned to influence the future and access potential funding. This allows our GP’s to spend their time providing the committed, patient-led healthcare they’re passionate about.
