Garway Parish Council have recieved the following information about recent discussions on cross-border healthcare arrangements. Under The Health and Social Care Act, Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) were abolished on 31 March 2013, and primary care provision, which includes GPs, in Herefordshire is now the responsibility of the Arden, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Area Team part of NHS England.

Both English and Welsh patients have raised concerns about cross-border healthcare issues, and it was felt necessary to update residents who are registered with Welsh GPs and who live in Herefordshire, on the latest situation and the differences between the two health systems as a result of devolution.
