For a long time, people have been asking for better local care. Care that’s joined up. Care that’s closer to home. Care that actually helps people get back to living their lives.
Why hasn’t it happened yet?
Well, it’s a massive challenge.
It requires everyone, from GPs to nurses, social workers to volunteers, and even patients themselves, changing the way they think, work and act. It means rethinking the way care funding is spent. It requires nothing less than a whole social movement.
But we believe it can happen. And it must - because without this change we won’t be able to meet our health and care needs for the future.
In Hampshire we now have a chance to make local care better, from the ground up. We’ve been selected by the NHS to test out completely new ways of organising our local health and care services.
Who are we?
