GPs in your area are starting a new way of caring for patients like you, people who have a range of health conditions.
Health 1000 : The Wellness Practice is a new type of GP surgery which looks after patients in their own homes –seven days a week – with extra services not normally available from your GP.
This new Practice will be open to only 1000 patients who are eligible to join and who transfer their care from their current GP to the new practice and GP team. You will have a new named GP and a keyworker who will make sure that you receive the care you need where you want it from a dedicated team.
The team includes a hospital specialist working full time in the practice with specialist nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and a social worker. And if you need other services such as dieticians and podiatrists we will make sure these are provided too.
Who runs Health 1000?
Health 1000 is run by local NHS GPs across Barking and Dagenham, Havering and Redbridge. They have received funding from the Government to improve the care of patients with multiple medical conditions.
