General Practitioners (GP’s) treat all common medical conditions and refer patients to hospitals and other medical services for urgent and specialist treatment. They focus on the health of the whole person combining physical, psychological and social aspects of care.
However, Granta Medical Practices is different, because we are a Primary Care Network (PCN)
Primary Care Networks build on the core of current primary care (GP) services and enable greater provision of proactive, personalised and coordinated and more integrated health and social care. PCNs are based on GP registered lists, typically serving natural communities of around 30,000 to 50,000 patients, building on current services to provide the personal care valued by both patients and GPs, and large enough to have impact and economies of scale through better collaboration between practices and others in the local health and social care system.
Being a PCN enables us to offer traditional secondary care services in our community, such as ultrasound and CT scans and direct access to specialist hospital consultants. We will shortly be offering direct physiotherapy clinics and dermatology clinics and we are proactively looking at how we can provide mental health support within our community.
Every employee of Granta Medical Practices is part of the team. We respect each other and continually build on feelings of trust and wellbeing. We listen to each other, are kind and are polite. We all have the same collective goal – to provide the best possible healthcare for all of our patients.
