HEALTHY HOUNSLOW - HEALTH CHECKS
Meet The Health Checks Team
Who we are
We are the Heath Checks team for Healthy Hounslow. Find a bit more about us below.
Your local Primary Care Network (PCN) is a group of GP surgeries working together in Hounslow to focus on local patient care. By working as part of a PCN, your GP surgery can offer you more services by sharing resources and employing more staff. Your PCN’s medical and non-medical team works as part of your GP surgery to give you better access to healthcare and support.
PCNs also work closely with other health and social care services to offer more personalised care. Your named GP is still responsible for the overall care you receive.
Specialised health practitioners in the PCN can often see you for some health issues instead of a GP. This means you may be seen and access specialist care more quickly. It also helps to free up GP time to make more GP appointments available for patients who need them. Sometimes, the PCN team can help you avoid a going to hospital or staying in hospital if you don’t need to.
