Nottingham CityCare (CityCare) Partnership has introduced a new model of integrated working called the ‘holistic worker model’.
It aims to change the way care is delivered and to provide tangible social benefits for the city. Under the new model, health and social care workers in the 'Urgent Care' team trained in each other's disciplines to enable them to more efficiently respond to crisis calls, thereby avoiding unnecessary admissions to hospitals or care homes. CityCare recently won an HSJ ‘Value in Healthcare’ award for this work.
