At a more local level we are also bringing together local partners – health and care organisations, borough councils and members of the voluntary sector – known as integrated care partnerships.
These are alliances of local health and care organisations, including CCGs, GP federations, our borough colleagues, the voluntary sector and others.
These emerging local partnerships are working across the local CCG footprints as follows:
- Guildford & Waverley Integrated Care Partnership
- North West Surrey Integrated Care Partnership
- Surrey Downs Integrated Partnership
To make the changes needed at local level, during this first year (2018/19) their focus will be on strengthening out of hospital services and ultimately reducing reliance on the acute hospital system.
