Local residents are warmly invited to an informative event on Wednesday 25 September 2019 from 7pm - 8pm at Brunel University to hear about a new way of working for GP surgeries across Hillingdon, aimed at providing a more modern, joined up health service.
Groups of neighbouring GP surgeries have formed Primary Care Networks (PCN) to start providing patients with a wider range of health and wellbeing services based around the needs of their local areas. Eventually PCNs will include a wide range of staff and services, including pharmacists, physiotherapists, paramedics, physician associates and social prescribing support workers. This will help to free up GP time to concentrate on more urgent patient needs.

Hillingdon CCG has launched a new video featuring Aggie the Alien, who recently landed in our borough from outer space and discovered how our residents manage their health. The video was produced by the CCG to give children a greater understanding of how local health services work, and how many common illnesses can be treated at home.
The Michael Sobell Hospice in Hillingdon is to reopen after a period of refurbishment with the Harlington Hospice appointed to run the service. These are intended to begin in September 2019 and anticipated to be completed around the end of November 2019. Funding for this exciting development has been provided by Michael Sobell Hospice charity.
