By investing in GP practices, the Trust can contribute to redesigning services, improving the health and wellbeing of the local population whilst also preventing unnecessary admissions to hospital.

Professor David Loughton CBE, Group Chief Executive, said, “We are delighted to welcome Tettenhall Road Medical Practice to RWT.

“Being a part of the PCN enables the practice to work closely with different teams across the organisation within secondary care, which helps to deliver the best outcomes for our patients.”

Dr John Burrell, GP and PCN Clinical Director, said, “We look forward to developing and enhancing services for patients, continuing the work of an already efficiently run practice.”  

PCN successes to date include an increase in patient access - offering additional appointments, during evenings and weekends – and a significant expansion in workforce; introducing a number of roles such as first-contact physiotherapists, clinical pharmacists and other allied health professionals.
