Therapy Partners and Dorset Private GP's Join Forces to Enhance Physical and Mental Health Care

The launch of a new private healthcare collaboration aimed at supporting the people of Dorset and relieving pressure on the NHS. The collaboration brings together Dorset Private GPs and Therapy Partners and will offer alternative healthcare services to people in the region, giving them the opportunity to receive high-quality care in a timely manner.

As you are aware, the NHS is facing significant pressure, particularly in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Waiting times for treatment and surgeries have increased, and the strain on the system is palpable. The new private healthcare collaboration will aim to support the NHS by offering private healthcare services to people who are looking for a quicker, more convenient way to access healthcare.

The collaboration will include both access to evidenced based physical and mental healthcare services. Both providers will be able to offer a range of healthcare services, including consultations, diagnostic tests, surgeries, and rehabilitation, among others. By working together, we aim to offer a seamless and efficient healthcare experience for patients in Dorset.

We believe that this new collaboration will be of great benefit to the people of Dorset, as it will offer them a new way to access healthcare services that they may not have had access to before. By providing alternative healthcare options, we hope to relieve some of the pressure on the NHS and help ensure that patients receive the care they need in a timely manner.

Therapy Partners and Dorset Private GPs are proud to announce their partnership to provide top-quality integrated physical and mental health care services in Dorset. The collaboration is aimed at addressing the growing demand for comprehensive healthcare services that prioritise both physical and mental wellness. The service aims to get quick access to experienced hand-picked local GPs nurses and mental health professionals who can offer you the time and attention patients need.

Through this partnership, patients can access a range of health services, including mental health counseling, psychiatric evaluations, physical health screenings, and acute medical care, all under one roof. This streamlined approach to healthcare ensures that patients receive timely and comprehensive care that addresses their unique needs.
