Foreword

“NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and Hull City Council are working with other partners to develop 21st century community facilities to improve health outcomes and quality of life for some of the city’s most vulnerable older residents.

Our proposals for a new Integrated Care Centre – which should open at the end of 2016 – form part of the wider Hull 2020 transformational programme and the City Plan.

Over the last year the CCG has spoken to people across Hull about their own health condition, the services they access, their experiences of local health care and the kind of care and support they want to help them get back to independent living.”

“The new Integrated Care Centre aims to reduce avoidable emergency hospital admissions and to shorten the time spent in hospital for people who do need to be admitted. It will also address significant gaps in service, such as local access to assessment and diagnostic services.

For health and social care to be ‘integrated’, it must be person-centred, coordinated, and tailored to the needs of people, their carers and their family. We therefore want to know what is important to you and your family to help us to explore options for the best use of the new facility to benefit the wider community. We welcome your thoughts on the proposals via our short questionnaire. We will continue to involve people in the development of new health and social care services within the community.”
