Alternatives to GP appointments.
By providing additional roles across practices in the Redcar area, we’re able to offer alternatives to seeing a GP for patients. This can include holistic treatments from our social prescribing link worker, specialist physiotherapy courtesy of our first contact practitioner, and a range of mental health services for adults, children, and young people.
Our scope extends to working with community organisations and structures, and our reach allows us to feed patients back into non-healthcare settings when that’s appropriate for their needs. Our social link prescribing workers have experience doing so across the country, and are eager to bring this experience to Redcar and Saltburn.
Proactive management of complex and elderly patients.
With a vast bank of pharmacists and care-coordinators, our ability to proactively manage our elderly and complex patients is substantial. This is helpful where polypharmacy and poor continuity have the potential to cause significant harm, which is true of many cases in the Redcar Coastal PCN area.
