HEALTH AND SOCIAL CARE

We support councils and other third sector organisations navigate the complex processes and mechanisms required to meet the challenge of integrating health and social care, and develop and deliver a system that will be fit for the future.

We work with the community-focused third sector ensuring they can play a full and sustainable part in delivering innovative and effective services to meet local needs. We help increase their commercial capabilities, evidence their value and grow their impact in order to attract new business and investment.

In 2019 – 20 we helped our clients achieve:

We expanded our Health and Social Care programme and supported partners in local health and care systems to improve outcomes through closer collaborations.

We worked closely with the LGA’s Care and Health Improvement Programme and developed the “Sizing the Prize” offer, a tool to help identify where resource shifts could support investment in improved health outcomes. In a Midlands authority, this resulted in the potential to reduce the cost for hospitalisation from falls for its elderly population by over £4m per annum.

We worked with health and care systems on a series of estates assignments. We advised Surrey Heartlands Integrated Care System on suitable vehicles to deliver health and care estate consolidation and renewal. We assisted Central Bedfordshire Council prepare a business case for its development of extra care housing and residential care in support of its elderly persons’ strategy. This assessed the case for the Council developing extra care, residential care and accommodation for short breaks and day care, demonstrating economic benefit to the public purse of circa £4m.

We supported the Welsh Government in the application of its Integrated Care Capital Fund. This fund was established to support housing projects delivering monetary and wider benefits to health and/or social care. Our work reviewed the current operation of the fund and made recommendations for how, in the future, it could maximise the benefits of health, care and housing integration.

We worked with City of Bradford Metropolitan District Council reviewing the operation of children’s placements. Our analysis identified potential savings of up to £500,000 in the procurement of placements, as well as the opportunity to accommodate young people in settings where they will achieve better outcomes.
