Proud to be a part of the NHS
To champion investment and delivery of high quality, innovative local healthcare services at scale for patients across the SmartCare organisation
CARE WHEN YOU NEED IT
Extended access is additional access to your core primary care services. From 1st August 2018 when patients need to see their GP, Nurse or HCA we can offer them a greater range of appointment times.
THE FUTURE OF HEALTHCARE
Our vision is to make a positive difference to the quality of primary care to our local communities, and to influence the development
and redesign of local services through being a collective voice for primary care in the local health and social care system.
“To champion investment and delivery of high quality, innovative local healthcare services at scale for patients across the SmartCare organisation…”
We aspire to be a leading GP Provider Federation, run by clinicians for the benefit of our local SmartCare population. We will achieve this by working with patients and partners to ensure that General Practice remains resilient, sustainable and independent to deliver high quality services for all of our patients.
