Frimley Health and Care is working in partnership with the local population and local partner stakeholder organisations to provide an integrated health and social care system fit for the future. This means people receiving seamless holistic services that meet their physical and mental health needs at the earliest possible opportunity – right care, right time and right place. Through a focus on individuals, as opposed to organisational structures, there is increased priority placed on prevention and proactive care rather than reactive treatment.
