Putting patients in control of their care – Andrew Carter
The Workstream Lead at Hartlepool & Stockton on Tees CCG, one of nine sites putting the Integrated Personal Commissioning Emerging Framework into action, shares how the programme is beginning to transform services for older people with complex health needs:
As an area that had been part of the original pilot, commissioners in Teesside were already convinced how effective Personal Health Budgets could be.
They believed in how they could support people to manage long term health conditions, so, for them, committing to the Integrated Personal Commissioning programme was a natural development.
When looking at the needs of people with complex needs, it clearly makes sense to work together across health, social care and the voluntary and community sectors, so IPC offered a real opportunity to commit to making integration real – both at an organisational level, but importantly so that the experience for people was simpler and supported them to take a more active role in managing their health.
