One PBC consortium covers almost all practices in Hastings & Rother, and Bexhill has another cluster.



PEC chair Dr Greg Wilcox explains: ‘With such a large grouping of practices, we have taken a rather corporate approach.'

Early wins included designing a new orthopaedic care pathway, with clear referral protocols, anticoagulation in primary care and a COPD service that allows patients to be identified, monitored, treated and followed up in primary care.

Two local practices are offering PCT-wide teledermatology services. Patients are seen within two weeks by specialist nurses working in primary care, with images being assessed in a national centre and reported back within two to three days.
