Health and care services in Rotherham are working together to support Rotherham people and families to live independently in the community, with prevention and self-management at the heart of what they do.
Rotherham’s health and social care community has been working in a collaborative way for the past several years to transform the way it cares for its population of 261,000.
The aim is to provide the best possible services and outcomes for local people through a whole-system partnership approach. The partners in Rotherham recognise that it is only through working together that they can provide sustainable services over the long term.
Local partners in Rotherham work together under an Integrated Health and Social Care Place Board, where they focus on people and places rather than organisations, pulling pathways together and integrating them around people’s homes and localities, to ensure current and future services work better. A way of working is being adopted that promotes continuous engagement with and involvement of local people to inform delivery of the Rotherham plan.
Health and social care budgets in Rotherham are being aligned to enable health, care and support services to be bought once in a joined up way.
