Our Health Partnership

What is Our Health Partnership?

Our Health Partnership is a new and unique GP super-partnership in Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield and beyond. It hopes to ensure that Yardley Wood Health Centre  thrives and that all our patients benefit for many years to come. The super-partnership was formed in November 2015, founded with 32 surgeries, including your surgery.

Why has Our Health Partnership been formed?

General practice and the wider NHS is under pressure.  Surgeries are trying to cope by working together. The NHS has already said that practices should work more closely with each other. The overall vision of Our Health Partnership is to make life better for patients. We believe this super-partnership will protect your GP services and develop new and better ways of providing healthcare closer to home.

What does Our Health Partnership mean for patients?

You will  not notice any obvious change to the way that Yardley Wood Health Centre operates, as it will:

  • not move
  • look the same
  • have the same staff
  • have the same doctors and nurses
  • have the same contact numbers

Most of the work in setting up Our Health Partnership that has taken place “behind the scenes”. As the super-partnership develops we believe you will notice:

  • doctors and nurses spending less time on administration and more time caring for patients
  • better direct links with hospitals, social and community care
  • development of services to provide more complex care
  • the ability to treat more people closer to home
  • the sharing and development of good clinical practice between practices

Happier doctors are better for patients

Our Health Partnership also aims to make life better for the doctors, nurses and other staff that work at Yardley Wood Health Centre. We firmly believe that patients benefit from happier practice staff. We are doing this by developing ways of supporting staffing levels across the super-practice and helping the business side of Yardley Wood Health Centre run more efficiently.
