Community based population health providers
Develop a role for population health specialists working in communities using the enrolled population and additional data to focus on desired population outcomes.
Why the contribution is important
Currently the General practice team are the only people thinking about the health outcomes for their enrolled populations and they focus on the things that they are accountable for - cervical screening smoking and immunisation.
We need people looking more broadly at issues that are important to the community, driven by local knowledge and data as well as the national goals ( breast/ bowel / hpv vaccination/ diabetes. Public health teams have in the past not put priority on this sort of work.
This role may suit a community nurse working with a group of providers in a locality, the data available in primary care is extremely valuable for this.
