Great Yarmouth and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group: Integrated care system

The judges praised “strong leadership” and said the area was “on the cusp of a very complex but positive programme of change”.

Great Yarmouth and Waveney CCG set out to develop a fully integrated care system across all relevant local organisations, in a bid to boost quality of patient care and increase value for money.

The CCG worked closely with district councils as well as regional bodies responsible for health, social care and the voluntary sector to develop the system.

A fund was established with Norfolk and Suffolk county councils, pooling resources and redesigning services. A community-advocates model was developed with Great Yarmouth Borough Council and Voluntary Norfolk, allowing members of the public to engage people with long-term conditions. Public consultations and public health initiatives took place.

The CCG set up an integrated care systems programme board to implement the project and a suite of further engagement activities took place. Work has begun to identify which pathways could work with combined budgets, management and teams.

Out-of-hospital teams have been commissioned in Lowestoft to help care for patients nearer their homes. This model forms part of the integration drive, and will be used area-wide by the end of this financial year.
