Primary Integrated and Community Health

The Primary Integrated and Community Health (PI&CH) Directorate provides a range of clinical, support and strategic services. Services are provided predominantly in the community and play an important role in keeping people well and out of hospital. The challenge of an ageing and growing population, with an increasing burden of chronic disease, emphasises the need for the design and delivery of health services to change. Investment in the development of primary and community health care, in conjunction with our links with General Practitioners and other providers of primary care, is therefore a key strategic priority for the District.
