A couple of weeks ago we launched our Primary NGO Support Hours pilot to the 12 practices taking part across Auckland.
As some of you may remember, we’ve successfully prototyped this service in a couple of Tāmaki practices, learnt A WHOLE HEAP, summarised in a kete of learning and this small pilot intends to teach us a whole lot more.
Half of the piloting practices are Tāmaki based with the other half from the wider ADHB area. The pilot will build from the experiences gained in the prototype, providing varied support for people experiencing current challenges and of course learn a whole lot more about the work and changes in practice involved for the health system to have the desired impact for the person.
It was a great night where time was spent firstly reviewing the learning this far and secondly for the GPs and nurses at the practices and the NGOs to get to know each other both personally and professionally - value each other’s strengths, understand how to work best work together and we know the great things that can happen from developing relationships in health care….
