Taurus Healthcare was set up in 2012 by all 20 GP Practices in Herefordshire to support the long term sustainability of general practice and allow practices to work collaboratively. By working together we can support our teams with the necessary services and technology systems to continue delivering high quality patient care.

With strong links and established partnerships both locally and nationally, we represent practices in discussions with Clinical Commissioning Groups, local NHS trusts, Herefordshire Council and voluntary services, to deliver joined up care across communities.

On behalf of all GP practices, Taurus operates the extended hours service (the hubs in Ross, Hereford & Leominster) as well as the GP out of hours service. In partnership with HVOSS we have set up social prescribing (wellbeing facilitators) to link to communities, as well as providing practices with training and recruitment support.

Ultimately our aim is to help patients have more control over their own wellbeing and healthcare, promote the prevention of illness, and to improve access to general practice so that your GP service is consistent 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
