A final call out is being made for people to recognise the great care work taking place across the Duchy by making a nomination for the Care and Support Awards Cornwall and Isles of Scilly, which closes Friday 23 August.
Greater integration between health and care services
“Our plans to transform health and care detail the need for greater integration between health and care services. The results of our ongoing engagement with the public, clinicians, health campaigners, and people working across health and care, show support for a more joined-up delivery. “There has always been a boundary between people who buy health and care services and those who provide them. Creating an Integrated Care System gives us an opportunity to bring commissioners and providers together and work together with the common aim of putting people before organisational priorities, which can only be for the benefit of everyone in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly. “NHS Kernow will consider the plans through its Governing Body, alongside discussion with our member practices.”
