Transforming our services: Physical Health

The Community Services Programme for Physical Health will take forward projects that support the following key areas of work:

  • Place Based Care – projects that promote partnership and integration with primary care and local communities
  • Enhanced Community Care – projects that promote partnership working with acute hospitals, local authorities, care homes, voluntary, community and social enterprise agencies
  • Healthy Communities – projects that promote healthy conversations with people about living well, promoting independence and informing lifestyle choices that enhance their health & well-being.

Each programme will seek to develop pathways of care that allow people to be in control of key decisions about how their care is delivered as well as offering support to living well.

Place-based care 
Transforming how we work with Primary Care Networks (local groups of GP practices) and care homes, and ensuring we are ready for any future surge in COVID-19 cases.

Healthy Communities
Ensuring our services are shaped around the populations we serve, linking more closely with the voluntary sector in local communities, and improving how we respond to high-intensity users of our services

System flow
Working with our acute hospital colleagues to improve patient flow – to avoid hospital
admissions and improve timely discharge from hospital to the community.

Intermediate care
Working with Hampshire County Council to deliver enhanced health and social care to people at highest risk of a hospital admission, and supporting those in hospital to return home swiftly and safely.

Urgent community response team - working with our patients and partners to keep patients at home and avoid having to go into hospital

How can you get involved? 
As a trust we want to ensure any improvements made to our services meet the needs of the communities we serve. We are looking for more carers and service users to get involved so please do get in touch with us.
