I'm confused.....what was is this Salford Together Outfit Offering ? How much is it costing you?

I really would strongly advise you not to part with any money &'don't give any bank/credit card details.

I think Salford Enhanced Team is an acute service of the NHS, so not dodgy. clearly not as efficient as it might be in identifying patient details.

Would they honesly despatch a nurse/paramedic just from a phone call?

NHS must have money to burn in that area...what with paying (presumably ) the mail service to deliver prescriptions to everybody who asks, now this.

Think a few more medical salaries need paying......they can start up all the trimmings when the NHS is fully staffed & we don't have to wait weeks for an appointment.

Priorities seem a bit skewed ??? Who sanctions these expenditures I wonder?

Salford NHS is known to be innovative and this service is, I think, to try and look after acute situations that arise in people with chronic health problems, both physical and psychological, to try to prevent repeated hospital admissions. The aim will be to save money.

Well I guess time will tell?

Has it been well publicised in the area.....maybe it is not available in many areas yet?

It all seems like changing the tyres when a new car is needed.

I have just googled Salford together,& although it does describe holistic care .....initially for the over 65's, now supposedly for everybody.

But wnen you click on any links it's all advertising.

One strange thing.....most "schemes" authorised by NHS, have .org

In their email address,..no sign of it on this site.

I'm probably behind the times, but it doesn't seem very efficient or organised to me.

Wonder where their funding comes from?

Maybe Pauluko would get an explanation from his GP?

Although I don't understand the situation, whether they are saying your surgery isn't included, or they can't locate your details, or quite what, but I do hear your total frustration. Sympathies! The NHS can be very good or very trying!

From what I can make out from your post, you need to talk to your surgery as they obviously have chosen not to offer this service. It’s not the fault of Salford Together if a surgery chooses not to partake. Maybe there’s a high cost implication. I’d definitely get in touch with the surgery to see if they are going to offer it in the future.

Ok, these seem to be the facts:

There's a "Salford Together" scheme which you believe you would benefit from.

Only some Salford GPs participate in this scheme.

Your wife's GP does participate, your GP does not.

First, you need to talk to your GP about this. If you are not happy with what they tell you, you are perfectly entitled to move to a doctor who IS in this scheme, perhaps the surgery your wife uses. So there is a choice.

I understand that you have lived and worked in Salford all your life, however this has no bearing on your issue. If someone who had just moved to Salford and registered at your surgery, they wouldn't get "Salford Together" would they? Because your surgery dose not offer it.

If someone who had just moved to Salford registered at your wife's surgery then they would get it. Because that surgery offers it.

Please do not become bitter and nasty about newcomers. Firstly, it is not good for you, it will affect your health. Secondly, for the reasons stated above, it is misguided.

I do hope your GP surgery will be able to help you make better sense of this on Monday. Best wishes.

You summarised it well Anne, as I understand it anyway... it's difficult text to follow. Hopefully this will help Paul, as he'd like to partake in the scheme he would have to move to a GP Practice who have signed up to it.

ok nomore i would ask you all is this middle class england which is where i fell i am at if am writing irish sorry to my fellow country men i was expecting a little understanding not to be run down i do miss text things this is not my game didnt live with keyboard but big spanners and machinery to keep your lights on Why why call it salford together you as peeps dont know HOW MUCH THAT HURT ME SIMILAR TO RHEUMY SAYING I DID NOT HAVE IT SAME AS QUACK WHO TOLD ME TO GO HOME FROM A/E BACK 24HRS LATER TREATED FOR SEPSIS I MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO PUT TEXT TOGETHER TO SUITE YOU ALL SOS NOW TO ANSWER YOU ABOUT CHANGE DOCTOR I WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN ANYTHING ABOUT IT EXCEPT FOR TAKING MY DEAR WIFE TO HER DOCS FOR CHECK UP AND SAW ADVERT FOR SAYING SALFORD TOGETHER O THAT'S ME PLAYED PEID FOUGHT LOVED ON THE STREETS OF SALFORD 70YEAR 5 MONTHS 3HRS NOW I HAVE TRIED MY BEST'S TO EDIT GOT MY MATE TO READ TEXT AND CHECK SAID OK SO ANY COMPLAINTS PLEASE REFER TO MODERATOR OH WHY DIDNT SOME MENTION EDIT TA THANKS I AM HOPEING FOR AT LEAST 4 GOLD STARS OR A 9/10

Pay no attention to anyone questioning your use of language. Screens are difficult to read at the best of times and as I'm sure anyone with arthritis knows, typing can be bloody difficult!

I'm certainly not in middle class England,by the way, I am a Scouser who now lives in Hull.

Anyhow, about the name "Salford Together", pay no attention to that either. The name will have been invented by a trio of young, bearded, hipster gentlemen over one of those posh coffees where the beans were pooed out by rainforest capuchin monkeys or something. People who have no clue about the lives us ordinary people lead. They couldn't exactly call it "Most of Salford Together except for that place on the precinct" could they? So don't let it anger you, in the great scheme of things, it means nothing.

And you can still change doctors if you want to access this service - just because you only heard about it the other day has no bearing on your right to change. If you want to do it, you jolly well can.

My reply was to Anne, I said hopefully it would help you Paul. I understand.

how would i have known about it except for taking my wife to HER DOCS mydocs would not put advert up for salford together well maybe not quite try again sos so forth so forth would they who is anne fields her reply to you came in my posts someone been to mods????????

It's confusing. Yes, you would have received an alert because I was replying to someone on your post, even if it was in reply to someone else it would show as an alert to you. The way to check is to look to the right of the person who's been replied to, in this instance Anne... you'll see it gives my username next to hers. Sorry if it confused.
