The number of people living in Salford and across the country is growing. As a result, we are living longer, and many live with long-term health conditions like diabetes or heart disease.
In January 2019, NHS England asked all GP practices across the UK to form a local Primary Care Network (PCN) with neighbouring surgeries.
Salford South East Primary Care Network is one of the five PCNs in Salford and includes ten member GP practices with a population of 83,500 patients. Salford South East PCN supports and develops the work of current primary care services. For example, our GP practices have greater flexibility and control to provide more proactive, personalised and integrated health and social care at the right time and place.
Our ten-member practices include:
What are the benefits to you?
We know the challenges facing the healthcare system in the long term are significant. But, working together, we can offer increased access and specialised services for patients closer to home and without the need to go to the hospital.
Services such as:
- Appointments with First Contact Practitioners, Social Prescribers, Mental Health Practitioners, Pharmacists and Care co-ordinators
- Additional capacity for GP and nurse appointments with local overflow hub
- Access to GP and nurse appointments, which includes evening and weekend availability, such as cervical smear and blood tests
- PCN GP practices working together to deliver the COVID-19 and Flu vaccine
Get the right care at the right time, and right place
Our website and online help and support hub are full of resources to help signpost residents to local and national health and care services.
Whether an existing patient or new to the Salford Southeast area, you can use our interactive map to quickly find or register with a GP within our Salford South East PCN.
