The Better Care Support Team (BCST) oversees the aims and objectives of the Better Care Fund (BCF). It commissioned SCIE to create a series of local practice examples to shine a light on good practice in integrated care locally. These examples form part of BCST’s practice and evidence for how BCF-funded schemes are improving integration services locally.
The BCF is a partnership between the Department of Health and Social Care, the Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government, the Local Government Association and NHS England. It is the only nationally mandated programme for the delivery of integrated care.
BCST would like to thank everyone involved for their participation in producing these examples, and hope you find them useful and informative.Infection prevention and control nurse for care homes Social prescribing – linking with primary care Transforming intermediate care (IC) services in Doncaster East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS) in Lincolnshire Assessing Integration using the SCIE logic model The role of the practice frailty nurse Isle of Wight raising standards and Personal Assistant Hospital Discharge Initiatives Implementing and evaluating the Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland Falls Pathway Clinical Assessment Service (CAS) for care homes York Integrated Care Team Mental health access team (MHAT) pilot Nottinghamshire Interoperability Project Adult Social Care & Health Alignment/Integration Programme, including voluntary sector support Working together for admission avoidance and discharge
