What we do
Community health care covers a wide range of services from health visitors to speech and language therapists, stop smoking support to district nursing as well as dental care, school nurses, foot care and physiotherapy. Our services are offered in health centres, surgeries, Holme Valley Memorial Hospital as well as in the home.
We are a community based organisation delivering the NHS services you need, when you need them and where you need them. Our aim is to provide high quality, value for money care and support closer to home. For some, this means being cared for at home, for others, it's the ability to book appointments online, or it could be attending group support sessions which run at times to suit people with a busy lifestyle. By becoming a Community Interest Company we now have the flexibility to tailor our services to meet the needs of the people in the area.
We also work closely with local GPs, Social Services, other local NHS organisations and the Local Authority to deliver a co-ordinated approach to care and support.
Led by our values we will:
- Understand the needs and wants of our community and deliver excellent quality and the best value care.
- Exceed expectation through superb customer service and innovation.
- Work with our partners to raise the bar of community services and be the first choice provider.
- Embrace new technologies with highly-trained, intergrated and motivated teams.
We will lead the way in providing community-focussed care and support. We will ask patients to describe their community healthcare services and hear them talk about care being delivered in homes and schools and health centres rather than just in hospitals. We will hear our staff talk about Locala being the employer of choice, and we will recruit based on behaviours as well as skills.
Our values are at the centre of everything we do. As an organisation, Locala Community Partnerships is built on the values of working together, respect and leadership.
