Across Hampshire and the Isle of Wight there are projects and schemes being developed that will help to deliver better health and care services to all of our residents, wherever they live. This is the space to find out about all of our Integrated Care System (ICS) wide projects that are working towards making sure everyone can get the right care in the right place and at the right time.
The children’s programme of work spans many specialties and requires us to work together to ensure care is well planned and co-ordinated, with seamless transition points between services, and as adolescents transition into adult services. Find out all about what's happening here.
In Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, there are over 32,000 children and young people with a diagnosable mental health condition, over 156,000 people on our GPs’ depression registers, and almost 17,000 people diagnosed with a serious mental health condition. The delivery of improved quality of and access to mental health services are a vital part of our 21st century model of care.
As soon as it is available, we will publish the mental health development plan that was produced in November 2019 and sets out a wide range of things that we will be working on in the future. Find out more here.
Like many areas across the country, we are exploring ways of using the information we have access to (clinical information, data on how and when people use our services, etc.) to tailor health and care services to more effectively meet the needs of local people. Using this data more effectively will help us to identify those people who need extra support, change how we provide services and, hopefully enable us to meet some of our key aims of helping people to stay well and supporting them to live healthier for longer.
This approach is called Population Health Management – find out all about it here.
A major part of improving how NHS services work for patients now, and in the future, includes sharing and using data better, and improving how the local NHS uses digital technology.
This includes sharing patients’ records between doctors and other care providers, installing WiFi at GP surgeries and NHS buildings, and helping local NHS IT systems ‘talk’ to one another better. Find out more here.
