General Practice and the Power of Community

General Practice is at the heart of our communities. GPs, and their teams, together with communities and neighbourhoods are using innovative and practical solutions to meet the challenges they face.

Here in East Lancashire we are creating 21st Century healthcare that is built around the needs of local people and led by primary care. This is by empowering local people to feel more in control of their lives and be able to draw upon their own personal resources, and those of the community, not only when health and social care problems arise but to prevent these problems happening.
