Our vision is to provide high quality primary care services centred around the eight neighbourhoods and based on the ethos of co-ordinated, accessible and proactive care for the population of Stockport
We want to encourage a population based approach to improving health and care through the delivery of place based care, through the integrated neighbourhood teams.
Who We Are
Viaduct Care (formerly Viaduct Health) was established on 13 April 2017 as a Community Interest Company.. A Community Interest Company (‘CIC’) is a type of company designed mainly for social enterprises that want to use their profits and assets for the public good.
The company is a not-for-profit organisation in which each GP practice in Stockport holds shares. In accordance with the provisions of a Community Interest Company we re-invest the majority of profits in improving local services to meet the needs of local people. We retain a proportion of profits to mitigate service delivery risk and ensure sustainability and development of the organisation.
What we do
Viaduct Care is the GP Federation of Stockport; the coming together of Practices across Stockport to deliver primary care in a new way. Our role first and foremost is to support primary care in Stockport and our aim is to reduce demand and maintain the sustainability of our practices .
Coming together as a Federation helps practices work differently in order to meet the challenge of delivering modern primary care. Whilst the GP practice will remain as the centre of primary care, working together to deliver services in different ways allows practices to meet the changing needs of an increasing population.
Primary care is central to the health and wellbeing of patients, their carers and the wider community. We already see in this current climate and times and its importance will grow. As a Federation our aim is to deliver excellent person-centred care and safe and effective services for the people of Stockport.
We’re happy to hear from you, at any time.
