Easington is a former coalfield area with persistent public health issues and a high prevalence of long-term conditions, obesity and smoking. Easington does not have an acute hospital within its boundaries and transport to hospital remains an issue for the local population. GP practices have identified considerable potential for improving patient health and are working closely together to deliver new services.
