Woking Locality Hub
North West Surrey’s Locality Hubs are a new innovation, which are being designed and set up to provide the opportunity to access a range of health, social care and community services – all in one place.
Who are Locality Hubs for?
If you are an older person with several health problems or other issues which impact your general health and wellbeing, your GP may refer you to the locality hub in your area if it’s appropriate for you.
Examples of the type of complications or issues we mean include: breathlessness, heart problems, dementia, at risk of falls or chronic kidney disease – though this is not an exhaustive list.
Why do we need Locality Hubs?
Emergency hospital admissions are incredibly stressful for you as the patient and can often be avoidable with the right preventative care and support in the community. Added to that, people aged 75 and above now account for 30% of national emergency hospital admissions - a dramatic increase from under 10% just two years ago.
North West Surrey has 35,000 people aged 75 or over, half of which are considered to be either frail or at risk. So we see Locality Hubs as a key way to support people to enjoy independent and fulfilled lives for as long as possible.
