Hull Adult Social Care Transformation Programme
December 19, 2016 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Nationally there is a huge pressure on adult social care budgets and in Hull there is a predicted £4m budget gap in 2016/17. The social care funding gap has been exacerbated by an aging population and more locally by existing change efforts not delivering the expected savings. In addition, current adult social care practice in Hull is not optimised, with limited focus on prevention, recovery and outcomes to maximise independence.
Therefore, doing nothing is not an option. A fundamental shift in practice is required to be able to help the people of Hull to live the fullest life they can – a life not a service – in a way that is financially sustainable in the medium and long term.
Hull City Council, with their transformation partner iMPOWER, embarked on a programme of work to develop a future operating model for the service.
The new model seeks to improve people’s wellbeing and outcomes, preventing, reducing and delaying reliance on formal adult social care (ASC), creating a financially sustainable ASC offer, which will:
- Maximise independence supporting people to have a life and not a service
- Provide a prompt and adequate service for everyone
- Facilitate a whole community approach
- Prevent social care needs from escalating
- Provide a greater focus on prevention support people to help themselves
They are now moving forward with the new ways of working and you are invited to come along to hear about the transformation of Adult Social Care and the future operating model, and to give your views.
