Improving long term care assessments and decisions to help 1,500 people live more independently every year
The supporting Independence team within the Connect programme have designed, tested and now implemented new ways of working and interventions that drive effective, evidence-based, person-centred practice and decision making, underpinned by a rigorous focus on independence for the people they work with.
The ways of working include:
Teams have been aligned to local communities which coalesce with NHS-local geographies (Primary care networks / neighbourhoods / PACTs).
By focusing our teams on these local communities, it will enable professionals to build productive relationships with partners and adults within these communities, enhancing decision making, practice and SI ways of working. 80% of the areas in Essex have been aligned with plans to engage with teams in the remaining areas.
