A MESSAGE FROM JOHN ABBOTT HALTON DISABILITY PARTNERSHIP (HDP) CEO

FOR LOCAL GPS

WE ARE ALL AWARE OF THE INCREASING DEMANDS BEING PLACE UPON LOCAL GP SERVICES
THERE ARE A NUMBER OF PATIENTS ATTENDING SURGERIES WITH NEEDS FOCUSED UPON VULNERABILITY, SOCIAL INCLUSION AND WELL BEING. TRADITIONAL STATUTORY SERVICES SUCH AS SOCIAL SERVICES ARE OFTEN ILL EQUIPED OR INSUFFICIENTLY FUNDED TO RESPOND 
ALTHOUGH THESE PATIENTS DONT FIT THE TRADITIONAL MEDICAL MODEL OF ILLNESS THEIR SOCIAL ISOLATION AND VULNERABILITY MEAN THEY DO HAVE REAL UNMET NEEDS, AND THEY CAN BE FREQUENT ATTENDERS AT GP SURGERIES. HALTON DISABILITY PARTNERSHIP CAN HELP
WE SUPPORT PEOPLE IN ACCESSING A PERSONAL BUDGET TO ENABLE THEM TO ACCESS REAL CHOICE INTHEIR SUPPORT CARE.
