This month has seen the official launch of the new Surrey Downs Health and Care multi-disciplinary community care service – a partnership between local GP federations, CSH Surrey, and Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust.
Surrey Downs Health and Care is a partnership between the three GP federations that operate in the Surrey Downs areas (GP Health Partners in the Epsom, Leatherhead and Ewell area, Dorking Healthcare and Surrey Medical Network in the East Elmbridge area), CSH Surrey and Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust. The partnership is also working closely with Surrey Council County to provide adult community health services in Surrey Downs (that’s the Epsom, Dorking and East Elmbridge areas).
This is a pioneering partnership that is bringing together the expertise from different organisations and multi-disciplinary teams to improve patient care in the community and enable local people to access the right support, care and treatment more easily than ever before.
The new service went live from 1st April and earlier this month the team celebrated with an official launch event.
