About Our Team
Holbrooks Health team understands the traditional model of care is changing. We understand patient’s needs are changing and this will mean more care needs to be delivered by health care professionals who are not GPs. NHS England is promoting a new kind of team "MCP teams" where multi-disciplinary teams deliver high quality care to patients from their GP practice. Holbrooks Health team is pleased to be developing a "Workforce Transformation" team working with Health Education West Midlands to promote upskilling and diversity of skill within the practice.
What will this mean for our patients?
Patients will be ‘signposted’ to other health care professionals, such as Clinical Pharmacists and Advanced Nurse Practitioners who are highly skilled and have more time to help patients manage their health.
