Video released about 'joined-up' approach to elderly health care in Hillingdon
06 January 2017
An innovative ‘joined-up’ approach to elderly health care has started in Hillingdon.
The Hillingdon Health Care Partnership (HHCP) brings hospital services, GPs and community care together in Care Connection Teams, designed to help prevent emergency admissions to hospital among older residents, many of whom have complex medical conditions.
It also prioritises the identification of older people who might be at risk of an emergency hospital admission, and makes treatment in their own home the norm.
The whole system is designed to head off an admission to hospital, through the use of early intervention. It will be implemented across the London Borough of Hillingdon in early 2017.
HHCP comprises The Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; Central North West London NHS Foundation Trust (CNWL); H4All, a partnership of voluntary sector health care providers; and Hillingdon’s newly formed GP Federation, which brings together all of Hillingdon’s GPs.
Below is a short video about the work of the Hillingdon Care Connection Teams.
