  • Deploy the most appropriate staff member(s) in a coordinated and timely way to best use community resources
  • Reduce risk of admission for patients
  • Support people in their homes, people in care homes and through in-reach in to hospitals where necessary

About us

Surrey Downs Health and Care (SDHC) deliver care closer to people's own communities through our Primary Care Networks and our innovative partnership of local NHS organisations.

Surrey Downs Health and Care has a track record of providing person centric care that goes beyond organisational boundaries to do what is best for the individual. This partnership includes:
  • The three GP federations GP Health Partners, Dorking Health Care and Surrey Medical Network representing practices that operate in the Surrey Downs area
  • CSH Surrey
  • Epsom and St Helier's University Hospitals NHS Trust
  • Surrey Council County

Historically, there have been boundary lines between the organisations that provide care to people in their homes, in GP surgeries and in hospitals, but we have always been united in our mission to provide great care to the people who need us.

It's on those grounds that the Surrey Downs Health and Care was formed - we want local people to receive the care that they need in the right environment. By bringing together our expertise, we can improve patient care and enable local people to access the right support, care and treatment more easily than ever before.

In bringing this partnership together, we are working to the same set of values that will translate into better care for our residents.
