The East Mendip Commissioning Locality is one of the nine commissioning localities which form the Somerset Clinical Commissioning Group. Together these commissioning localities cover the whole of the county and will be working collaboratively to improve health care throughout the county by harnessing the knowledge and experience of health professionals and patients to work together to ensure that the care that individuals receive is tailored to meet their needs.
The East Mendip Commissioning Locality consists of three member practices and covers a population of 42,472.
Objectives of the East Mendip Commissioning Locality
We are fully committed to improving the health of the local population in East Mendip through the commissioning of effective, local services that allow more of our patients to be treated within their own community.
We are fully committed to working with our patients and with partner agencies such as Mendip District Council to identify areas where we can provide better patient services.
We are fully committed to developing innovative ideas that deliver improved services in the East Mendip area.
We have a number of key priorities which we have identified as a commissioning locality:
- Prevention of disease and support to help patients lead healthy lifestyles
- Patient empowerment and education to enable better understanding of health and treatment options
- Increasing and developing the range of health services that are available locally in the Frome area
- Integration of care across different care systems and integration of health and social care
- Developing the skills and knowledge of local health professionals so that the quality of primary care is consistently high
