Community Health Services
Improving outcomes for frail older people
This initiative aims to:
 Redesign community health services to enable a ‘shift’ from hospital
based services to more community based provision. The initiative will
free up capacity within community hospitals to help the whole health
economy redesign services and make efficiencies.
 Ensure access to a range of services which maximise independence and
enable frail older people to live in the setting of their choice whenever
possible. Patients will be admitted to the appropriate hospital
environment, whether community or acute, only when absolutely
Community Health Services
Transforming community dementia services
This initiative aims to:
 Introduce a memory service pathway to enable specialist services to
concentrate on more complex patients.
Resign the Intensive Community Assessment and Treatment Service to
ensure it focuses on preventing admissions to hospital so that patients
are discharged from acute dementia assessment and treatment beds as
early as possible (where this is in the best interests of the patient).
Support the reduction of anti-psychotic medication for people with
dementia living in care homes.
Improve the quality of care for people with dementia by building staff
Learning Disability Services
Development of locality based community teams and
improved integration with primary care, social care
and mainstream secondary care services
This initiative aims to:
 Develop effective locality team working to enable a care pathway based approach, linking
the locality teams to wider networks and an increase in health promotion support.
 Redesign learning disability community services and enhance home treatment and crisis
management. This involves strengthening the outreach and refocusing the autism service,
and continuing to develop locality team working to enable a care pathway and clinical
network approach.
 Move from a bed based short breaks service to a peripatetic, flexible 24/7 community team.
 Further develop partnerships across health and social care and with our service users and
their families and work with them to improve intervention and enablement.
Adult Mental Health Services
Delivering excellence in acute mental health services
This initiative aims to:
 Redesign of the adult mental health acute care pathway to provide
timely care to prevent admission where possible and facilitated by the
Centre of Excellence at the Bradgate Unit. This involves strengthening
the Crisis Resolution and Home Treatment Service and introducing a
Single Point of Access telephone service.
 The redesign of the adult mental health recovery service based around
community mental health teams, outpatients and specialist services.
This will optimise service user recovery on discharge and better align the
service to primary care. This initiative will also result in reduced waiting
times for psychological therapy treatments.
