Our aim is to deliver better health outcomes for the people of Southampton by ensuring we have the very best health and social care services possible. We believe that by working together in a seamless and integrated way we can achieve this.
Our city’s needs and challenges cannot be addressed by doing the things we have always done - joining the Better Local Care programme provides the city with an opportunity to go further and faster towards achieving our aim, and to capitalise on the work carried out to date through the Better Care Fund and Prime Minister’s Challenge Fund.
There are 34 GP practices in Southampton, serving a diverse and vibrant population of 265,000, which includes a number of areas of deprivation. Our aim is to deliver new models of care across the city but we hope to start in the south and east areas.
