Group Clinics

The West Yorkshire Primary Care Workforce & Training Hub are supporting the spread and adoption of Group Clinics across Primary Care in West Yorkshire. Group Clinics are an evidence-based way of delivering access and recovery, creating capacity, reducing waiting lists and releasing one to one appointments. Group Clinics can be delivered as either face to face and/or virtual (video group clinics [VGCs]). They bring a group of patients together with clinicians in a supportive clinic, improving quality and experience of care for patients and primary care teams alike.
