1) Providing primary care services
We continue to provide Vasectomy services to 15 West of Northumberland GP practices. A GP specialises in this service and is part of the HPCA executive team and also works closely with Newcastle Hospitals Foundation Trust in providing outreach Vasectomy services across the area.
Five of the practices in West of Northumberland have also continued to provide the INR service under a AQP (Any Qualified Provider) service treating patients on Warfarin.
We are also providing regular projects to improve the care given to our patients this includes Osteoporosis, AF and Asthma. We are also about to embark on a further contract with Newcastle Hospitals and the LCRN to increase research studies carried out across the practice in the area.
2) Example measures of key services
With regards to the Vasectomy service, 20-30 patients are being seen for procedures each month.
The INR service is available to all registered or unregistered patients at the five sites across the West.
3) Providing care services close to home
The whole of the West of Northumberland patients can benefit from these services and these services are carried out much closer to home.
