Partnership sets out vision for primary care

STP partners have published their strategy for ensuring GP practices across the Black Country and West Birmingham have access to the clinical skills and support they need to deliver efficient, resilient services to patients and families.

The strategy sets out how primary care services will be delivered across multidisciplinary integrated teams, seven days per week. Together with partners, the aim is to bring care closer to home and offer more services in GP practices than ever before, in the hope that this will help improve the patient experience and reduce unnecessary visits to hospitals.
