Cantab Health Meeting

Cantab Health Meeting

On 27 February a 'Cantab Integrated Community' workshop was held at the Storey's Field Centre.


"The Cantab Integrated Neighbourhood aims to improve the health and wellbeing of its population of nearly 50,000 people. It will bring together a multidisciplinary team of individuals and organisations to deliver proactive person-centred care in a way that is collaborative and seamless for the population it serves and the staff involved."

This is a new initiative (July 2019) where local GP practices join together to better share resources and harness the voluntary sectors, including community groups.

The three practices in this Integrated Community are:

  • Huntingdon Road surgery
  • Bridge Street Medical Centre
  • Red House Surgery

From a show of hands at the beginning there were approximately 100 healthcare professionals, approximately 20 from the voluntary and community sector and 20 residents.

The first hour started with an introduction from the clinical director outlining the vision, followed by moving stories from recipients of healthcare as examples of the challenges, followed by a presentation of data to help identify where resources are needed. The remainder of the three hour workshop involved group sessions thrashing out ideas.

Some examples of the ideas (just a few):

  • Tackling mental health issues:
  • 'Good Life Cafe' (mental health services and Mind)
  • 'Good News' cafe (university)
  • 'Open Door' spaces - just turn up
  • Involving communities
  • Good communication and signposting was a common theme

The workshop outcomes and conclusions will be circulated (hopefully also to our community), future workshops are planned.

If you want to know when Eddington will get it's own surgery? Sorry that wasn't what the workshop was about however the surgery that covers Eddington planned for the expansion, increased in size and can easily accommodate us.
