Jon Rouse, Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership Chief Officer, visited Salford to meet and listen to frontline Salford Integrated Care Organisation (ICO) staff and partners.
Jon was joined by Anthony Hassall, Salford CCG Chief Accountable Officer, at the staff focussed session at The Children’s Sure Start Centre in Little Hulton. He listened to a variety of interesting case studies from the following groups:
- The Integrated Pharmacy Project (NIPPS)
- Age UK
- Joint Service for people with Learning Disabilities
- Intermediate Care service
- Virtual Ward
Bernadette Enright, Director of Adult Social Care for Salford Together, who chaired the event, said: “By sharing some real life case studies, we were able to really bring to life health and social care integration in Salford, showcasing how person centred, multi-disciplinary coordination of care can deliver better experiences and positive outcomes for vulnerable people.
“The strength of partnerships and joint working was so impressive, as was the care, compassion and commitment in the room, showing how we truly keep the people of Salford at the heart of everything we do.”
