Primary Care Strategy

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Primary Care includes General Practice, community pharmacy, optometry (eye health) and dentistry services. These services provide the first point of contact for patients, have an ongoing connection with local communities, and are essential to improving the ‘whole person’ health of our population across Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Berkshire West (BOB).

The challenge

We currently deliver some outstanding primary care across BOB, but services are under considerable pressure. We know we have inequalities in outcomes for our patients, workforce gaps and high workload. These challenges require new ways of working across the whole health and care system.

Our draft Primary Care Strategy

We have developed this draft strategy for BOB to address the challenges we are facing locally in primary care as well as improving integration between all primary care services and better partnership working with community services.

This has been created based on national guidance, our own local plans, as well as ongoing engagement, insights and analysis with you - our local population.

Thank you to everyone who has fed back on the draft primary care strategy. Engagement has now closed and we are analysing all responses. A report will be published by May.
