Rural GP practices
Through our contacts with social prescribers and Primary Care Networks, ICD have made links with a network of rural GPs.
A mutual understanding of the issues facing disabled young people and adults in rural communities, led to a discussion on the potential to provide a specific role around this issue.
Discussions are ongoing around a ‘signposting and social prescribing’ role, which also looks at working with community providers to broker services which fill ‘gaps’ in provision.
Linked to the provision of LD Annual Health Checks, ICD are looking forward to adding value to this process and working with this forward thinking group of practices.
