One wonders how much difference it can make when one bears in mind the future growth of the population in Fareham
Quote from The News article:
"A meeting was held last month for health professionals from across the sector to discuss ways of moving forward with care.
It comes as Gosport has been at the centre of pilots such as the same-day access service and GP practices partnering with NHS trusts such as Southern Health."
And with Southern Health under such close scrutiny for poor management will a more integrated association with it prove very benficial?
