West Heath Surgery works closely with the local GP provider organisation South Doc Services to deliver quality services across the area. It has found an innovative response to evolving patient needs by training an HCA to Band 4 in many of the functions that were formally carried out only by doctors and nurses. This has lead to a redesign of the workforce across many of the services in both organisations.
