Integrated Care Pilot

Geraldine Hoban to report.


12.1    The Board had before them a letter from the Department of Health inviting expressions of interest for Health and Social Care Integration “Pioneers”.  Members were informed that the Department of Health had called on Local Health Economies to put themselves forward as “pioneers” of integration – ie pilot innovative integrated care solutions involving health and social care and the third sector.   


12.2    Members were informed that discussions with key partners in the City suggested that Brighton and Hove would be keen to put itself forward and further discussions with the Council would suggest that integrating support around the needs of homeless people in the City was a priority for all concerned.  Therefore the CCG had invited key stakeholders to a meeting on 19th June 2013 where there could be more detailed scoping on what an integrated service might look like across statutory services, primary care and the third sector and obtain partner agencies commitment to being part of this proposal. 


12.3    The CCG needed to provide an expression of interest back to the Department of Health by 28th June 2013.  One of the criteria was that the CCG had endorsement from the Health and Wellbeing Board to the proposal as an area of focus.   Geraldine Hoban stressed that some models of care were not meeting the needs of homeless people and there was a need to think about how to use resources in different ways. 


12.4    Denise D’Souza endorsed the proposal and agreed that work needed to be carried out on this issue. 


12.5    RESOLVED - That the Board endorse the proposal for inclusion in Health and Social Care Integration.
