Joint Commissioning Intentions for Integrated Care 2015/16 – 2016/17
The Adult Integrated Care programme builds on our success to date in joining up services across health and social care. For example, we have already brought together a number of services which support people to gain their independence following a hospital visit. The challenge now is to significantly increase the speed and scale at which we continue to join up health and social care, so more people benefit from changes like this.
The focus of the programme is to explore ways to support people to help themselves, prevent unnecessary admissions to hospital and develop more of the services that people want in their local communities.
This short video from The King's Fund illustrates the sort of benefits that integrated care can bring.
Who is involved in delivering the Adult Integrated Care programme?
The programme is being led by NHS Lewisham Clinical Commissioning Group and London Borough of Lewisham. It will also involve partnership working with Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust, Lewisham HealthWatch and the voluntary sector.
We will be working with local residents, community groups and service users more closely over the next four years to make sure you are involved in planning changes and to support you to adapt to those changes.
There will be the chance for you to share your views and opinions over the course of the programme.
