Castleman Healthcare is a not-for-profit company in Poole North and East Dorset which is owned by 13 GP practices.

 

We provide business management and operational support to the practices and the three primary care networks they form – Network Poole North, Wimborne & Ferndown Primary Care Network and the Crane Valley Network.

 

This helps with the development and delivery of proactive and coordinated care to the 120,000 patients in this area.

 

We have chosen to operate in this way so we can develop healthcare services at scale, targeted to the needs of our population. By sharing resources and expertise across the practices, we make sure patients get the continuous and personalised care they value and deserve.

 

The income generated by Castleman Healthcare is reinvested to improve patient care in the GP practices and PCNs, directly benefiting our communities in Dorset.

 

We are happy to share our expertise, service models and tools with other PCNs through commercial arrangements.
