Two Notts areas to lead on pilot to improve care in the community
Nottinghamshire has been selected to lead on a national pilot project which aims to improve care for people in the community.
Integrating care teams covering Mansfield and South Rushcliffe, which includes County Council social care staff, will pilot health and social care providing more joined up care through:
• more joined-up health and social care assessments and reviews
• personalised support plans to include health and social care outcomes
• integrated personal budgets for adults with social care and health funding.
The pilot will evaluate the benefits of closer working across health and social care and specifically the benefits of more joined up assessments, support plans and integrated personal budgets.
It is intended the learning from the pilot will be used to inform a future roll out to other Nottinghamshire areas during 2019-20.
