Bringing care closer to home is a key focus of local GP’s, to reduce the distances travelled for patients and their carers’.

The locality has started to analyse information available for cardiology outpatient attendances and are exploring how viable it would be to make certain diagnostic equipment available in the eight locality GP practices.

GPs and staff from the South Cotswold locality are also working with 2gether NHS Foundation Trust Mental Health services to hold an event in January 2016 to improve awareness of community support for patients and their carers’.

The event will host a ‘marketplace’ of organisations who can offer support and guidance. If your organisation would like to be there, please contact
