Sollershott Surgery, Letchworth Garden City

We are pleased to announce that 12PointCare have been successful in the tender process to take over the APMS contract to provide GP Services at Sollershott Surgery in Letchworth with effect from 1st July 2018. The awarded contract is for three years, with an option for NHSE and the CCG to extend for an additional two years thereafter.

We are delighted to have been awarded this contract. We look forward to working with our member practices alongside the existing practice team to support the provision of high quality services to the patients registered at Sollershott Surgery.

In addition, we strongly believe that the holding of this contract will greatly improve the ability of 12PointCare to support all of its practices and patients, by increasing the viability of additional locality wide schemes such as the employment of practice-based pharmacists or the provision of extended GP access.

Winter 2017-2018

For the third year in succession, 12PointCare successfully provided additional GP and nursing appointments for North Hertfordshire patients via its member Practices as part of the Locality Winter Resilience Scheme. This scheme covered the period 1 October 2017 – 15 April 2018.

GP Practices received a pro-rata share of the available funds offered by the East and North Herts CCG and were required to submit a monthly audit to demonstrate the extra capacity provided.  Between its member Practices, 12PointCare are pleased to have delivered a total of:

  • 7,554 additional patient appointments during core surgery hours (Monday – Friday 8am – 6.30pm)
  • 1,335 additional patient appointments outside of core surgery hours (including weekends)
  • 63 additional Care Home ward rounds
