Primary health care provides the first point of contact in the health care system and is key for those individuals that find accessibility of primary care difficult.
Turning Point is a leading health and social care organisation providing services for people with complex needs, including those affected by drug and alcohol misuse, mental health problems and those with a learning disability. For Turning Point, integrating primary care into our service is an essential element in bridging the gap between primary care needs.
Primary care services enable us to develop traditional services and deliver them in new ways that are fundamental to our values.
In Earls Court, the GP surgery, the dentist, the sexual health clinic and the community hub have been brought together under one roof to better integrate the support people need. While CHIP provides bespoke primary care support for the homeless, who face significant health inequalities.
