About Your Health Partnership
Your Health Partnership is a single GP Practice covering six sites across Sandwell; Carters Green Medical Centre, Mace Street Clinic, Oakham Surgery, Regis Medical Centre, Rowley Village Surgery and Whiteheath Medical Centre.
In 2011 Carters Green Medical Centre and Regis Medical Centre came together with the aim of creating a new way of organising General Practice, moving away from the traditional single practice approach and building a larger GP-led organisation to make better use of resources and increase the range of services on offer to our patients.
Further successful mergers with Oakham Surgery and Whiteheath Medical Centre, allowed us the freedom to start building our services around the needs of our registered population and in 2017, we merged our existing contracts and clinical systems thereby creating the single organisation that our teams had envisioned, serving 46,000 people across Sandwell.
Later that year, YHP became a Primary Care Home site; a new model of care created by the National Association of Primary Care which introduced us to the principle of creating a complete care community – drawn from colleagues across mental and acute Trusts, local authority, social care and the voluntary sector to name but a few – to focus on local population needs; an approach which continues today.
On the 1st April 2020 YHP became part of the Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust (SWB), forming their own directorate with the Trust alongside Great Bridge and Lyndon Health Centres; Your Health Partnership Primary Care Network.
YHP has always been an innovative GP Practice and has worked very hard to bring together different elements of the health service, to break-down some of the barriers that exist between family doctors and hospitals; between physical and mental health; between health and social care.
Integrating with SWB was the natural next step in this process and will enable YHP to:
- Learn from each other and work with you to shape the way that local service are provided
- Improve communication between services so that you experience better care
- Meet the challenges facing the NHS together and build a level of sustainability so that we can continue to serve you and our community long into the future.
