Transforming Community Services (TCS) – 1. Strategic Planning

Transforming Community Services (TCS) is about taking services where patients and service users have to travel, and bringing them into the community and into people’s homes.

The effects are twofold:

  1. people tend make more use of the service, because they don’t have to travel, which means they gain the benefits of prevention rather than late remedial treatment
  2. Healthcare delivered in or near patient own home avoids “hotel fees” (cost of food and bed in hospital)

This page looks specifically at the first part of TCS - and the examples used are Healthcare.  The principles apply to all sectors

Initiating joint working - cross sector forum

With New Ways of Working I initiated a core planning group to identify cross-sector issues (health, social services, childrens incorporating commissioners and providers from public, independent and voluntary sector) and share knowledge.
We all know that decisions on the funding and types of care in one sector often impact on others; staff and users want seamless care delivery, and of course transferability of skills and qualifications.
