The last 12 month
We rapidly mobilised and rolled out our Covid-19 vaccination programme. By early September 2021 ,91% of our population had received their 1st dose and 86% their 2nd dose.
Our ‘Living Well Team’ has grown to include 4 occupational therapists, 2 health and wellbeing coaches, an admission and discharge care co-ordinator and a social prescriber.
We have 2 clinical pharmacists and our pharmacy team is expanding to include 2 pharmacy technicians. The team provide support to GP practices with medication related queries, medication reconciliation and medicines optimisation.
We have a senior mental health practitioner providing support for people with mental health needs.
We have a growing team of first contact physiotherapists providing expert assessment and advice for patients with musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions.
Our care home residents continue to benefit from the HomeHealth team working closely with our GP practices.
We have worked with the local clinical commissioning group (CCG) to organise and commence the roll out of proxy access to SystmOne for care homes following a successful local pilot.
The next 12 months
We have made excellent progress in expanding our Additional Roles Reimbursement Scheme (ARRS) teams and the next 12 months and beyond will see us developing and embedding these teams to maximise the value for patients and practices.
We are investigating ways to expand our mental health offer.
We are working with the Lincolnshire Primary Care Network Alliance (LPCNA) and ambulance service to engage a paramedic.
The Living Well team and and the HomeHealth team are exploring ways to work more closely with each other.
We are exploring the benefits of a nursing associate to work between GP practices and the HomeHealth team.
We are providing the Covid-19 booster vaccination programme.
We will continue to work with the LPCNA to ensure our network contributes to and benefits from system working opportunities in the Integrated Care System (ICS).
What we are most proud of
Covid-19 Vaccination Programme in terms of population coverage and how it has brought our GP practices together.
