Winner: Rochdale MBC

Rochdale’s intermediate tier service provides intensive support – at home and in community beds – to people who are at risk of an emergency hospital admission, who need extra support on discharge from hospital or who need extra support to retain independence. It has reduced the number of emergency hospital admissions and helped keep people independent. It is delivered by a partnership between the NHS, Rochdale MBC, the third sector and carers, and supports about 2,000 people per year.

Judges’ comments: “This was a strong and improving partnership that has built confidence across the whole system and has good evidence of service user satisfaction.”

Highly commended: Tower Hamlets LBC
