Neighbourhoods

Welcome to Sheffield Neighbourhoods

Everybody needs good neighbours when it comes to better health and wellbeing

Where we grow up, and the community we live in, has a massive influence on our health and wellbeing. With an ageing population and increased demand on public services however, health and social care services across the country are trying to find more ways to work together to help people to stay well and get the care they need as close to home as possible.

In Sheffield, GP practices have joined together to form 16 groups across the city – known as Neighbourhoods – along with their ‘neighbours’ from hospital, community, mental health, social care, housing services and local voluntary groups. Each Neighbourhood covers a population of around 30-50,000 people.


What do Neighbourhoods do?

Practices work together to coordinate health and social care for people in their local area, and consider how to make the best and most effective use of local services.

Each Neighbourhood has a set of priorities based on the health and social needs of their particular area. There is also a strong focus on preventing ill health, reducing unnecessary hospital admissions and supporting people to gain control of their own health and wellbeing.

What do Neighbourhoods look like?

Each Neighbourhood has a team made up of local GPs, nurses, social workers, pharmacists and the voluntary sector. They meet often and seek input from a range of other specialist health, social care, community and public services as and when required.

How do Neighbourhoods affect me?

Neighbourhoods are still in development but having them as a patient means:

Different Neighbourhoods have different health needs which can't be solved overnight. If you access local health and care services regularly, you might see some of these changes already. To everyone else, the change may be more subtle but the more services we can join up, the more you’ll see the difference.
