Eye/North West

 

 

Since March 2016, the organisations involved in the Eye/North West Connect Integrated Neighbourhood Team (INT) have been working closer together to provide the right mix of support in a more efficient and timely manner to meet people’s needs.

To date, there have been many good news stories where local people are feeling the benefits and further improvements will be made as the Connect way of working continues to develop. These include:

 

  • Joint working
    When a referral is made for an Occupational Therapist, it can be made to both Suffolk Community Health (SCH) and Adult and Community Services (ACS), so it is important that the right service picks up the referral.  Through Connect, professionals for both services meet on a weekly basis to discuss all the referrals made to ensure that this is happening.  For example, with one complex case a lady had complex neurological issues and the house she was living in did not meet her needs. After an initial discussion, the OTs completed a joint visit to thoroughly assess the situation and to ensure that she was linked in with her local community.
  • Co-location
    Eye and the North West is a large geographical area. This can mean that it is difficult for staff to be in touch with one another. Currently, there has been work towards enabling staff to be able to co-locate within Hartismere Hospital, to help services to be more joined up and working within the communities in which they serve.

One of the aims of Connect is to help people be aware of what support is available in their local community to help them and their families lead a healthy and active life.
