Improved partnerships between health and local government

HSJ Awards 2016: Improved partnerships between health and local government

Nottingham City CCG, Nottingham City Council and partners - Connecting care – improved partnership working through integrated care

The Nottingham City integrated care programme has seen a range of health, public and voluntary bodies work together to help people with long-term conditions.

More than nine in 10 people said they were treated with dignity and respect, while more than 7,000 were using assistive technology, helping to slash health and social care spend by £333 per service user.

Judges said they were “really impressed” with the commitment to partnership working.
