Who We Are
Middleton Health Centre
Middleton Health Centre, which opened in December 2009, is one of ten GP practices in Greater Manchester that are run by Hope Citadel Healthcare.
‘We are not your typical GP practice and our aim is to do health care a bit differently. Its what we call Whole Person Healthcare’
Hope Citadel Healthcare is a not-for-profit community interest company, who have been commissioned by local CCG’s to provide NHS services to the local population where the practices are located.
In order to help patients and GPs work together to unpick difficult and often complicated situations, the HCH has developed a model called “Focused Care”. Each practice employs a Focused Care Practitioner to help those needing abit of extra support to help get the help that they need and often be the link between health and social care. We are continuing to develop this model across Manchester.
More information on Hope Citadel Healthcare can be found on their website.
Whole person health care
Whole person health care looks at people in their wider setting, as whole people.
We understand that good health is not just related to clinical matters but that it is affected by many complex factors such as; social, economic, community issues, beliefs, family circumstances and employment.
Because of this, at Middleton Health Centre we don’t just give out prescriptions but work with our counsellors, community nursing team and other external organisations to help with these issues in the community wherever possible.
