Network DevelopmentFramework

From April 2014 NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group has invested additional resources into General Practices to improve capacity. The improvements are to enable practices to provide additional services to patients in an effort to reduce inappropriate attendances at A&E.

We have utilsed the investment by providing an extra GP session per week, providing telephone assessments from 8am until 12 noon
