News from North East Hampshire & Farnham CCG

Earlier this year North East Hampshire and Farnham was chosen as one of a handful of sites nationwide where local clinicians and practitioners will work with communities to create and operate new, joined-up health and care services.

Our Vanguard programme has an overall aim of keeping people “happy, health and living at home” wherever possible. It will see local people supported to improve their own health and wellbeing and when they are ill or needing support, they will receive the best possible care.

The programme will focus on:

  • prevention and self-care - helping people to manage their own health condition, empowering them to make choices about their care and ensuring the right services are available to all our communities;
  • integrated teams of specialist health and social care professionals - establishing teams of community nurses, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, a psychiatric nurse and a psychiatrist, a pharmacist, a specialist in care of the elderly, GPs, the voluntary sector, and specialists in palliative care and domiciliary care. These teams will be located in Farnham, Aldershot, Farnborough, Fleet and Yateley;
  • enhanced community care services - for people in their own homes, in GP surgeries and local, community hospitals;
  • access into and out of specialist inpatient care - in community hospitals (such as in Farnham and Fleet) as well as Frimley Park Hospital.

The Vanguard programme is a partnership between NHS North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group, Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust, Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust, Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, Virgin Care, South East Coast Ambulance NHS Foundation Trust, North Hampshire Urgent Care and Hampshire and Surrey County Councils and all GP surgeries of the NE Hampshire and Farnham area.

We are also working with you, the patient, the public and voluntary organisations to help shape, develop and continually improve the way services are provided.

For further information on the North East Hampshire and Farnham Vanguard, visit (http://www.northeasthampshireandfarnhamccg.nhs.uk/vanguard).
