Integrated care

ConCare-logoNHS Nottingham City Clinical Commissioning Group, Nottingham City Council and Nottingham CityCare Partnership are working together to integrate adult health and social care services as part of a five-year programme to improve and streamline care for citizens.

Four key project areas

The programme has four key project areas:

  • Co-ordinated care - a new model changing how primary care, community health services and social care services are commissioned and delivered, emphasising joined-up care and proactive support
  • Independence pathway - a new model of assessment and rehabilitation, enabling people to remain as independent as possible
  • Access and navigation - access to and navigation around services will be simplified and a navigator role or service will be developed
  • Assistive technology - harnessing products and services designed to enable independent living.

Our aims for integrating care

Integrated care aims to ‘join up’ health and social care to meet the needs of an ageing population and transform the way that care is provided for people with long-term conditions, enabling people with complex needs to live healthier, fulfilling and independent lives.

The scenario of Ada and Maureen in the two videos below shows how we are attempting to integrate health and social care more effectively in Nottingham City.
