Chapel St have been working with Mill Hill residents, community groups, Blackburn with Darwen Primary Care Trust (PCT) and Cornerstone Healthcare to support to a GP practice (the Bentham Road Medical Centre) in the delivery of a Community Oriented Primary Care (COPC) pilot. The aim of the initiative is to engage local communities in the process and delivery of improving health outcomes for the ward.
