Child health GP hubs
Our child health GP hubs consist of four to five local GP practices or surgeries and a paediatric consultant, who work together to meet the needs of the local population using one practice as the centre of care.
We currently have six hubs across four clinical commissioning groups, shown below. These hubs are a key component of the CC4C model.

How do the hubs work?
A paediatric consultant will visit the child health GP hub every four to six weeks to take part in a child health focused, multidisciplinary team meeting. Here they are able to support case management without the patient needing to be referred to them separately.
In addition, a specialist clinic is also held during their visit so that patients can be seen by a GP and the paediatric consultant at the practice.
The new model of care has been successful in reducing the number of unnecessary paediatric outpatient appointments.
Due to the success, the CC4C model has been adopted by other CCGs, trusts and GP practices across the UK. View the CC4C national map.
