Summary

South Somerset, in common with many parts of the South West, were faced with combined problems of soaring demand for healthcare and rising costs, at the same time as a staffing crisis in general practice and other parts of the system. The model adopted focuses on supporting people to understand and manage their own conditions, link into the voluntary sector locally and navigate the healthcare system through a team-based approach where different professional groups operate at the top of their licence.

Region: South.
