Hackney’s bid to become one of the five areas in London to take part in a health and social care devolution pilot, has been approved by government. Hackney Council, City and Hackney Clinical Commissioning Group and local organisations delivering health, social care and wellbeing services have signed up for the initiative.
The devolution proposal sets out a shared vision of delivering an integrated, effective and financially sustainable system that covers the whole range of wellbeing - from public health initiatives for school children, timely and appropriate access to GPs and community pharmacists, and top quality hospital treatment, to excellent mental health services and supporting people to remain independent in their community for as long as possible. Examples of how this new model could benefit residents include:
We will be working together with local residents and patients throughout the pilot.
