Welcome to the Reading Primary Care Alliance
We are an organisation of 13 South Reading Practices working together to deliver health care.
The Practices in South Reading have joined together to develop innovative ways of improving patient access to medical care across the locality. We aim to provide patients with safer, faster, and better healthcare.
Our goals are to work strategically with all South Reading practices to help secure the best services for patients, whilst working together to support the member practices in the challenges of a changing NHS. We aim to make a positive impact on medical services in South Reading by working closely with the CCG, local providers and patient groups to improve the delivery of healthcare to the local population.
The changing landscape of the NHS – the challenges:
The NHS as we know it has to change to ensure sustainability into the future. We are all living longer with complex health issues which is placing a strain on our ability to deliver care. Demand has exceeded capacity and we must work differently to meet patient needs. The Reading Primary Care Alliance has been set up to help Practices meet these challenges. The Board has agreed 4 principal areas for strategic development which will form the cornerstone of the overarching Business Plan. The strategy areas have been categorised as follows:
- Sustainability and Resilience
- Innovation and Transformation
- Quality and Operations
- Business and Governance
