About Us

The hub was based on an idea from a GP with over 20 years of experience working in Buckinghamshire, supported by a group of GP practices in the southern part of the county. The idea evolved from the need for a central resource on local and national support for patients which would naturally and easily be accessed by all patients belonging to a practice.

The key underlying principle of combining practice websites with Bucks Health Hub is to give patients information on all their options before they consider visiting their practice; offering real choice which does not just include the GP practice but other local and national services. Many of these services can be accessed without needing to go through a GP practice. This can provide patients with an improved and more efficient experience. For those patients who do come to their practice there is an opportunity to better understand their options, choosing a solution which best meets their needs.

Medicine has become more complex. The healthcare ecosystem is evolving rapidly, with major advances in treatment and care, along with an increasing number of patient support services. Navigating this new world can be a daunting task. While national services are generally well signposted, many excellent local services are often less easy to access.

That’s why we’ve created the Bucks Health Hub. It’s a one-stop resource that enables you to quickly and easily find a wide range of healthcare support information for our region from approved NHS sources.

Our aim is simple: to be the go-to place for any medical queries that you might normally contact your GP about, to relieve pressure on the NHS and to help improve patient experience and health outcomes. We’re committed to ensuring that all information held on this resource is both recent and relevant. It’s about providing a more reliable, streamlined pathway to support services for patients, as well those who support them, including families, carers and third-party health and care providers.

We’ve created a large database of local and national information, including on important current topics such as antibiotic resistance, end-of-life care and how to most efficiently use the NHS. For those who do attend their GP practice, there’s information to improve the quality of your consultations, including shared decision making and safety netting (keeping safe outside the GP practice).

This website is maintained and being further developed in association with local GP and allied health services. New self-referral services will be added as they become available.
