Everyone wants a health and social care system to be proud of, one that’s fit for the future and built to last.
Here in Warrington, these organisations are working in partnership to deliver just that.
All these agencies are creating an integrated care system (ICS) for Warrington in line with the new NHS Long Term Plan and the government’s expectation that all parts of England will have joined up systems by 2021.
Integrated care is where health and social care services are joined up so that citizens, not service providers, come first. Warrington Together officers are developing health and social care models based on peoples’ needs and where they live rather than existing organisational structures.
A more joined up approach means services delivered closer to where people, services that are joined up so that people aren’t passed around between agencies, and where people have the freedom to use local third sector services and develop personal and community assets.
Warrington Together means health and social care services working together, with local residents, to create a healthier, happier Warrington.
Partners will build on strong foundations to make better use of precious resources. Services will be brought together at convenient locations borough-wide, where residents can access the ongoing support they need to manage their own health and wellbeing. Those who need help the most can rely on the most support.
Local residents will play a key role in shaping the delivery of health and social care provision. Rising demand and limited resources mean we can’t afford to carry on doing what we’ve always done – but what we do in the future depends on what we learn from listening carefully to local people, service users and our staff.
The health and social care system is under enormous strain as agencies try to cope simultaneously with rising demand, staff shortages and unprecedented financial pressures. The existing system is unsustainable and in urgent need of reform.
Rising demand and limited resources mean we can’t afford to carry on doing what we’ve always done – but what we do in the future depends on what we learn from listening carefully to local people, service users and our staff.
Local residents will play a key role in shaping the delivery of health and social care provision. They will tell us what they need and help shape change. We will be led by the best ideas, wherever they originate – and there will be no significant change without full consultation.
