What are we working on?

Innovative projects that support primary care sustainability, working together across different specialities to achieve solutions together.

What we have already done

Central Vale have established community pain, wound, phlebotomy, paediatric and pessary clinics to meet the needs of the local population.  There is a single point of access for patients presenting with mental health through 'Mind in the Vale'.  Additionally, the cluster has a multi-disciplinary team to support its most complex patients.

Future Priorities for the Cluster

The cluster is working on new initiatives to address some of the cluster emerging priorities.  These include improving the uptake of childhood vaccinations, children's mental health, children's safeguarding, chronic disease, neurology, discharge liaison service, catheter care and frailty.
