Your Health Partnership was created in 2011 by our founder practice; Regis Medical Centre. The partnership now includes Carters Green Medical Centre who joined Your Health Partnership in July 2012, Oakham Surgery, who joined the Partnership in April 2014 and Whiteheath Medical Centre, who joined in April 2015.
The GPs formed Your Health Partnership to increase the quality and range of services provided to our patients. The NHS is changing nationally and the demand on GP services is growing largely due to people now living much longer and the increased care provided within primary care and closer to home. The GPs have decided to work together to make the best use of the resources they have and to build a partnership which will provide better and more services for their patients including:
• Larger provision of local services to patients
• Better access to services
• Opportunity to provide more services in the future
Your Health Partnership recognises that general practice environment is changing rapidly, and many practices (both large and small) will find it difficult to deliver the new agenda alone. Your Health Partnership brings together like minded, forward thinking GPs and creates the opportunity to integrate existing neighbouring practices to build an organisation that serves its local community.
Your Health Partnership is a Super Partnership, that is owned, controlled and run by an executive board of GP partners. It is a single legal entity that is strong, tightly focused and equipped with the drive, capability and resources it needs to succeed.
