Individual Cluster Plans and Reports

Central Vale Cluster Network Action Plan 2017/20  

What are we working on?

Dressing/ Wound Care/ Leg Club established to take burden of workload from practices into a community centred service focusing on patient’s wellbeing.
Recruitment of Pharmacist.

What we have already done

Our achievements so far:
Employment of a Cluster Pharmacist who covers all practices and helps with the medication management of all patients. He has also been supported to complete his Independent Prescribing Course.

Working with the Secondary Care Phlebotomy Service to look at a more 'cluster based' way of providing community phlebotomy appointments.

Supporting the Cowbridge First Responders with cluster funding to provide more community cardiac defibrillators and training for the local areas.

Working closely with the Welsh Ambulance Service (WAST) to create a Cluster based Paramedic service to support emergency patient requests during the working week.

Using cluster funding to support GPs to step out of day to day practice to set up/support more MDT services for their patients.

Future Priorities for the Cluster

Up skill Palliative Care delivered by Practices.
Prudent prescribing around antibiotics.
