This locality is committed to achieving the best use of local health resources and achieving as much care as possible as near to the patient’s home as possible.
St Austell Healthcare and the Three Harbours Group (Lostwithiel, Fowey and Middleway surgeries) are both Primary Care Home sites.
All nine GP practices have arranged themselves into four clusters to support each other and to develop a more sustainable and resilent primary care. Some of the areas they are working on collaboratively are:
- Eldercare discharge liaison; and
- Home Visiting and triage service.
