Community Partnerships Health Improvement Delivery Plan

The Community Partnerships Health Improvement Delivery Plan (CPHIP) is the first written as part of the Population Health service specification for Bromley by Bow Health Partnership.

The intention of the document is to provide a description of the health of the local population living in Network 6 (Bromley by Bow and Stepney Health) to inform the delivery of programmes of work which aim to improve the health of the local community.

The CPHIP provides a useful summary of the issues and challenges for the health of the local population, and also the strengths, assets and opportunities within the area, providing a foundation to the delivery of programmes of work that effectively meet some of those challenges.

GP Practice Merger

St Andrews Health Centre and St Paul’s Way Medical Centre are merging systems and creating a single patient list. The two practices will come together, pooling their management and clinical teams to offer greater resilience and a wider choice of services to our patients.

Both Practices have been sharing their values and commitment to high quality clinical care over the past year and now believe a full merger will help to provide improved access and choice for patients.

PHARMACY: Minor illnesses

The pharmacist in your local pharmacy is trained to provide clinical advice for a range of minor illnesses and can advise on suitable medication that can be bought without a prescription. Most pharmacies have a private consultation room where you can discuss issues with pharmacy staff without being overheard.

We will arrange for you to speak with your local pharmacist if your condition can be better managed by them. This includes conditions such as hayfever, dry skin, mild constipation and indigestion. See here for a full list of medicines and conditions that your pharmacist can help you with:

Why can’t I get a prescription for an over the counter medicine? – NHS (www.nhs.uk) 

When prescribing emollients (moisturisers) for eczema, we want to prescribe what is most beneficial for you but also what is most cost effective. This means that you may not receive exactly the emollient that you have requested.

REGISTER NEWBORNS

Parents of newborns, you can now register your baby with your GP without registering the Baby’s birth with the Registrar.

It is important to register newborn babies with a GP as soon as possible, so they don’t miss out on vital health services such as the 6-8-week check and immunisation programme.

You do not currently need a birth certificate to register your baby with the GP Practice
