WEB Community Health & Wellbeing Board

As a PCN we are a member of the WEB Community Health & Wellbeing Board.  The Board operates within the structure of the Integrated Care System and the Local Care Partnership and is formally recognised by the NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group, Royal Devon University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, Devon Partnership Trust, the WEB Primary Care Network, Devon County Council, East Devon District Council and Exmouth Town Council. These partnerships are maintained through a mix of meetings plus regular written and oral communication.

The WEB Community Health & Wellbeing Board enable the communities of the towns and villages of the WEB area to participate in the development of their own health and care services.  They work with stakeholders using their local knowledge to provide advice and guidance for the development and effectiveness of health and social care services provided for the communities of all ages in the WEB area.

As a Board member the PCN has strong links with the local services and partners involved and works with them to support the delivery of joined up services that are focussed upon the needs of the community.  Together we engage with a diverse cross section of the WEB area population on specific health and social care matters ensuring these are considered and represented appropriately. 

 

Patient Participation Groups

All 6 practices within the WEB PCN have a Patient Participation Group (PPG) which comprises of patient volunteers working with practice staff and GPs to work together on improving patient services.  They aim to establish partnerships between patients, doctors and staff to enhance the services provided by the practice.

In support of these groups there is a WEB PPG’s Chairs Group that come together to share views and ideas. 

 

Hospital League of Friends

Exmouth Community Hospital and Budleigh Salterton Hospital (Seachange) have active League of Friends groups that are registered charities and work to support the charitable work of the hospitals.
