East Lothian’s Primary Care Improvement Plan was developed in collaboration with primary care professionals, primary care representatives, stakeholders, service managers, the third sector and planners. It aims to develop a model of care which:

  • Develops a multidisciplinary team approach to identifying and meeting patient needs
  • Establishes new ways of working and new ways to deliver primary care services across the county in suitable premises
  • Provides improved, accessible information and education
  • Gives greater provision of supported self-care and self-management
  • Enhances third sector services and community and voluntary support
