Integrated care and support

It is important for proactive and jointly delivered care to be provided for the most vulnerable people and their carers, and this will be achieved through the establishment of integrated teams and joint processes that support admission avoidance and timely discharge from hospital. Customers will only need to tell their story once, knowing their needs will be met by staff who work together to achieve the best outcomes. This will be achieved by:

  • System-wide end to end review of transfers of care across Warwickshire in order to understand the reasons for delays and implement a jointly agreed action plan.
  • South Warwickshire Foundation Trust (SWFT) and Warwickshire County Council (WCC) are continuing to optimise capacity of our co-located Home First service (CERT, ICT and Reablement)
  • A population health management system to support the integrated, responsive model of care and better understand the local population’s health needs.
  • Fully integrated, place-based mental health and social care teams around clusters of GP practices. They will have access to shared records and a focus on prevention and proactive care.
  • Increased use of assistive technology via the Integrated Community Equipment Support Service (ICESS).
  • Implementation of the dementia strategy across multiple partners to increase the level of support given to people living with dementia.
