What are the benefits?
The practice is dedicated to care homes, and we believe that the care provided to you will improve through:
Clinicians (health professionals) being able to spend more time with you to proactively help to improve your health and well-being
More specialist care will be able to be provided if needed
Your care will be better coordinated with other health professionals
You will see staff from the same team week to week, so you and the staff will be able to get to know each other
Staff will be fully aware of your health needs as they will have access to your medical history
You will be able to talk about your needs and wishes to ensure you get the right care for you
There’ll be more opportunities for the people who are important to you to be involved in your care if you wish
If you would like to be cared for by the new GP service you will need to transfer your GP registration to the Fountains Medical Practice. You can do this by reading and signing the attached forms, and your care home staff will forward them to the service.
If you have any questions, please ask staff in your care home who will be able to provide further information.
