Putting people first

“Our focus is on working in partnership to deliver better joined-up services and making sure that people are at the centre of what we do. Integrated care simply means putting residents first – bringing together health and care practitioners to supply care focused on people’s needs and ensuring they can remain living independently for as long as possible.”

Working in partnership with local people

“By working in partnership with local people, we are committed to making the changes which will improve peoples’ health and wellbeing by ensuring they receive the right care, in the right place at the right time. This will include ensuring there is parity between physical and mental health services. We know there will be anxiety about what this will mean for individual communities, but as health and social care leaders we are committed to being open in our approach, setting aside organisational boundaries and acting with the best interests of patients in mind.”

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.”
