The Alliance has recently appointed a project manager, Tracey Teasdale, to take forward the proposals within Enhanced Primary Care (EPC).
Enhanced Primary Care forms one of the three Vanguard work streams alongside Community Integrated Teams and Recovery at Home. EPC aims to develop a range of co-ordinated, integrated, community based services which focuses on the care of patients with long term conditions; seeing that they are managed more proactively and offered better tools for self-care.
Over the coming weeks and months, Tracey will attend general practice meetings across the city to update GPs and their teams on the proposed plans, and obtain feedback on how the proposals could be further developed.
At present, a number of plans exist to help with the implementaion of integrated care accross the City of Sunderland, including the review of diabetes care and stroke prevention.
Jon Twelves, Chief Executive at Sunderland GP Alliance said:
“I am pleased to welcome Tracey to the Alliance. Her role as Project Manager will be vital in taking forward the proposals within Enhanced Primary Care (EPC) and ensure our GP member practices are fully involved.”
