Pegasus Health celebrated with the team at Travis Medical Centre last week when they became the first Canterbury practice to achieve Health Care Home (HCH) Certification.

HCH is a national ‘model of care’ programme that puts the needs of patients and their families at the heart of local healthcare delivery. GP and Practice owner, Dr David Pilbrow says “HCH means everyone at Travis Medical Centre is supported to continuously improve the care we provide to our patients. It means we put patients at the centre of everything we do. Our whole practice works together to ensure patients get the most appropriate care delivered by the most appropriate team member.”

Pegasus Health’s Chief Operating Officer and Deputy Chair of the national HCH Collaborative, Mark Liddle, says HCH is based on the principle that primary care is the foundation of a successful health care system, therefore improvements made here will deliver positive outcomes for our population and wider health system.
