NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group and Hull City Council’s joint approach to shaping future health and social care services for people in Hull has been shortlisted in the Health and Social Care category in the 2018 LGC Awards.
The awards, run by Local Government Chronicle, are the biggest and most prestigious awards ceremony for the local government sector. The winners will be announced in a ceremony at London’s Grosvenor House venue on 21 March 2018.
The submission highlighted the shared vision of the two organisations including:
- working together to share resources, objectives, ambitions and expected outcomes across CCG, social care and public health with an integrated financial plan of £640m;
- successful partnerships across the wider public sector (police, fire and ambulance) will ensure sustainability and build on the legacy of City of Culture;
- innovative housing and care solutions;
- the development of new ‘frailty pathway’ involving the CCG, social care, GPs and community geriatricians as part of the city’s new Integrated Care Centre to open in 2018.
Nearly 100 organisations have been shortlisted as finalists in the coveted awards across all categories, which recognise the best of local government innovation and service delivery.
Hull CCG Director of Integrated Commissioning, Erica Daley, said:
“We are delighted to be shortlisted for an LGC award for our joint work with Hull City Council. It is recognition of how focused we are on working across the public sector and with local people to create a healthier Hull.”
Cllr Gwen Lunn, portfolio holder for public health and adult social care, said:
“Our vision as a council for adult social care is that we give the people the support they need to live their lives in the best way possible, maintaining their independence for as long as possible. Both the council and the CCG are fully committed to working together to promote independence and ensure people are in control of their own lives.
“We are very proud to be amongst the LGC shortlisted councils and to gain national attention for Hull’s pioneering best practice in health and social care”.
Winners will be announced on 21 March 2018 at Grosvenor House on London’s Park Lane which will be attended by 1,100 people from local government and its partner organisations.
