What is Integrated Care?
Integrated Care for every person in England means care and support built around the needs of the individual, their carers and family. Integrated care is the means to the end of achieving high quality, compassionate care resulting in better health and wellbeing and a better experience for patients and users of services, their carers and families.

There is a need to create a culture of cooperation and coordination between health, social care, public health, other local services and the voluntary sector. Working in silos is no longer acceptable. There needs to be an end to institutional divide between physical and mental health, primary and secondary care, and health and social care as budgets and resources reduce.

Providing a seamless service focussed on the individual within their own homes is vital. A big part of this will be working to avoid crisis in people’s care which too often results in hospital admissions. Integrated care will mean getting better at preventing deterioration of health and fewer people ending up in hospital. Instead they will receive the right care, when and where they need it.

Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group and other statutory partners are moving towards a model of locality based integrated care services. This will involve a process of advanced personalised care planning for older people, people with mental health issues, people with physical disabilities, learning disabilities and children. In each of the five localities within the Dudley borough, there will be a need for better cooperation and coordination between health, social care, public health and the voluntary sector.

Purpose of this workshop
Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group and Dudley CVS are hosting this workshop in partnership to explore the potential role and contribution of the voluntary and community sector in integrated care in Dudley borough.

The workshop will enable trustees/directors, staff and/or volunteers of voluntary and community organisations (including social enterprises) to:

– Understand what integrated care is,
– Understand a model for locality based integrated care in Dudley borough,
– Explore what the voluntary and community sector can contribute to integrated care in the five localities and across the Dudley borough, and
– Explore with Dudley Clinical Commissioning Group and other partners what steps need to be taken to ensure the voluntary sector is involved in this new way of working and is able to contribute effectively to integrated care.

Who this workshop is aimed at: trustees/directors, staff and volunteers from voluntary and community organisations including social enterprises.
