Improved Hospital to Home Scheme - Norwich

Norfolk County Council are working to improve the way they broker care and support discharges for patients from hospital to either their home or a care home.

NCC are developing this scheme across the county’s three acute hospitals where they want to provide patients with all the information they need to make choices about their care, from the facilities and services different providers offer to their prices and availability. NCC want to work much more closely with providers to be able to present patients with their options, to identify any issues around the efficient discharge of patients to a care package and ensure that this scheme resolves them in ways that helps patients make their journey out of the hospital and providers of care to support their clients.

This scheme will offer a number of benefits to providers. NCC want to work with care homes and home support providers to improve communications, information sharing and the processes around a patient’s transfer to a care home or when they return to their own home and to increase your level of confidence when accepting new patients, especially when they require complex care and support. They also want to present the information you share with them about your organisation directly to patients and their families to empower them to make choices about care and support prior to placement.

NCC are hosting three events to introduce the scheme, answer your questions and discuss how to develop the scheme together with providers.

If you wish to attend please follow the website link to the event page and RSVP by clicking the green button at the top of the page.

NCC ask that when you register you provide both the name of your organisation and the name of your representative at the meeting.

Market Engagement Plan for Norfolk - task and finish group - Communications Meeting 2

Norfolk County Council is working to improve the culture of engagement in the adult social care market in Norfolk and they are keen for your help.

Since November 2016 NCC have been addressing a number of key issues raised by care and support providers at provider engagement workshops. NCC recognise the invaluable expertise, experience and perspective that you have, and therefore want you to play a central role as this work develops. There are various ways that you can get involved, from sharing information relating to how any of the 36 points have affected your organisation to offering your ideas on what a good solution to a recommended action would look like.

NCC are eager to facilitate this collaboration, and invite you to join one of the four task and finish groups that will address specific parts of the market engagement plan. If you wish to join one of these meetings, please contact Don Leggett via email.

The groups will be meeting monthly at County Hall until the end of the year, and then once every other month until the project’s completion in March 2018.
