Winner: Torbay and South Devon FT & Torbay Council – New Model of Care – Torbay and South Devon Integrated Care

In October 2015, the coming together of acute and community health and social care services in Torbay resulted in an integrated care organisation that has listened to feedback from local people about how they want to experience health and social care services. The organisation is improving people’s experience by providing care that feels co-ordinated and person-centred and gives users more say in decisions and supports them to manage their health and wellbeing. More than £200,000 has been invested in voluntary sector wellbeing co-ordinators in every locality, and the intermediate care team has expanded by 60 staff, helping more people to stay at home.

iMPOWER is proud to be the sponsor of the 2018 LGC award for Health and Social Care. The interface where these sectors meet is rightly a national priority, and the awards provide a valuable opportunity to highlight the most innovative and effective work being undertaken to improve outcomes for local citizens. While we wait for the latest green paper, it is inspiring to see so many in the sector seizing the initiative and pushing ahead with improvements within their communities.
