Salford Primary Care Together has celebrated its first birthday.
The organisation was established in October 2016 by Salford’s GPs to help local people live healthier, happier & fulfilling lives.
Since then the organisation has launched a number of new services or initiatives to improve patients’ access to healthcare. These include the Salford Wide Extended Access Pilot and the Ordsall and Claremont Primary Care Diagnostic Unit, which gives patients quicker access to ECGs, heart monitoring and other health checks. The organisation recently partnered with Salford Royal to create a better solution for patients who come to A&E with a primary care need.
Chief Executive Officer Dr Neil Turton said: “We are delighted that residents in Salford are starting to benefit from GPs working more closely together and are experiencing improved access to services in their local area.”
