Hammersmith and Fulham’s ICP Programme is working to improve health and well-being outcomes for local people by integrating care around individuals’ needs. When we talk about integrating care, we mean that a group of existing, local organisations need to work more closely together to improve the health and wellbeing of people living in H&F.

Our work with the NHS “Integrated Care Partnerships” began with a series of workshops earlier in the year, which explored how the ICP could better engage with the local 3rd sector.  The workshops were well attended, with more than 30 organisations participating and contributing to the discussion and shaping the proposal for how the 3rd sector could be supported and involved in the ICP programme.   We are delighted that the ICP has agreed the proposal, which includes Sobus operating as the information hub for ICP, facilitating and inviting your input and contributions, and providing feedback through our website, newsletter and networks.

In order to improve health and wellbeing outcomes, we need to:

  1. Look at what we know and what people have already told us, because improvements must be based on understanding what local people need.
  2. Work together to develop and achieve the results that really matter to local people and help them to lead healthy lives.

EVENT: The NHS would like to invite you to a workshop focusing specifically on health and well-being priorities for older people on Thursday 21st June, 9.30-12.30 at the White City Community Centre.  We are seeking attendees who are older people with lived experience of using NHS services, and/or their carers.
