Compass House Medical Centres is part of an alliance of ten GP surgeries called Torbay General Practice (TGP).
TGP’s surgeries work together to deliver large-scale services and tackle wider health issues more effectively.
However, day-to-day services – such as GP consultations and nurse appointments – are still delivered by each practice individually.
Like many parts of the country, Torbay’s population faces a number of health challenges. The age profile of the area is comparatively high, which means long-term health conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, are increasing.
Working together more closely enables practices to address those issues more effectively. It allows us to organise services and systems that are more robust, sustainable and effective for the local population.
TGP’s initiatives include the Torbay Care Home Visiting Service and the Covid Vaccination Service, based at the Riviera International Centre.
As a collaborative, TGP can also maximise the strengths and skills of individual practice staff and it means support is available for practices that might face certain challenges.
TGP is made of the following practices:
It is led by a representative team (pictured) made up of the practice manager and a GP from each of the ten practices. The team works together on initiatives that benefit all patients across Torbay.
