Place base care is a national direction which is all about building a ‘person-centred’ approach, which puts people at the heart of decision making. This is driven by local people in order to meet the unique needs of a local population in one given location. Through collaborative working and making the best of local assets and resources, place base care will enable people to keep fit and well in their own communities.
How were our neighbourhoods created?
Place base care in Wirral has taken significant steps in 2018 with the formation of Wirral neighbourhoods. Wirral has been divided into 9 neighbourhoods, all with a population of communities between 30-50,000 people. With the recent introduction of Primary Care Networks, we will be working through and defining what role our neighbourhoods will have, and look at moving forward with a focus on the wider determinates to keeping people fit and well.
