How will this work?
The new teams will have access to the information they need to better help Dudley people and they will also be working out of the highest quality buildings. We have already introduced new team members from the voluntary sector too - these new workers will continue to signpost people to our 1,000-plus community and voluntary groups across the Dudley Borough.
When you really need specialist hospital care you can expect that to be of the highest quality, with a focus on delivering the outcomes that you need to get you back home as soon as possible. Under this GP-led model, we will ensure that the location of services is in the community whenever possible and hospital only when absolutely necessary. This approach recognises the power that a strong community can have in creating health and wellbeing so we are really keen to work together to make Dudley healthy. This will be helped through investing in new technologies to help you to take control of your own health and care where possible.
