There are a number of types of regional NHS trust:

  • NHS PCTs , administer primary care and public health. On 1 October 2006 the number of PCTs was reduced from 303 to 152 in an attempt to bring services closer together and cut costs. PCTs oversee 29,000 GPs and 18,000 NHS Dentist. In addition, they commission services from other NHS Trusts and from the private and voluntary sectors, provide primary care in their locations, and oversee such matters as primary and secondary prevention, vaccination administration and control of epidemics. PCTs control 80 per cent of the total NHS budget

  • Ambulance Service NHS Trust

Health care should be taken seriously to make sure to diagnose any issuea with the health yourselves or those you care for.

You are at the centre of the way we practice: we organise ourselves around you. This enables us to provide you with your own unique personal support and guidance.

Central to our philosophy is respect for you as an individual. Your needs come first and our team is here for you. We aim to be understanding, supportive and efficient as we discuss your concerns and health needs.

You may want us to tailor your care, or perhaps you’d prefer to receive information that helps you make your own decisions – many people choose a combination of these two approaches.
