How we work with care homes and domiciliary care providers
The CCG in partnership with stakeholders from health, social care and the third sector, support care homes and domiciliary care providers to provide high quality, cost effective care for Vale of York residents.
Bringing stakeholders together, our forum, known as ‘Partners in Care’, takes place bi-monthly to share information sharing and discuss important topics that help to ensure the delivery of high quality care to residents.
The Partners in Care forum is hosted by the CCG and is open to all care stakeholders from the local area to update providers with the latest developments in healthcare and provides an opportunity to influence and collaborate on service and quality improvement.
The agenda is shaped by the forum’s membership and includes regular updates from teams within the CCG, the Discharge Liaison Team at York Teaching Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and the Care Home and Dementia Team (Tees, Esk and Wear Valleys NHS Foundation Trust), Skills for Care and North Yorkshire County Council Quality Improvement Team.
In addition there are updates around pressing issues and innovative programmes of work. External speakers visit often to listen to member’s feedback or to share information.
