Accelerated Cluster Model & Social Prescribing

Cardiff, Vale of Glamorgan

One of our Transformation Fund projects has allowed a group of GP practices in the South West Cluster in Cardiff to develop new ways of working.

The key developments for the cluster have been:

Pioneering a new social prescribing platform.

To support people better on discharge from hospital

Improving links to independent living services through a multi-disciplinary approach

WHILST DELIVERY WAS HAMPERED BY COVID-19, WORK CONTINUED TO IMPROVED OUTCOMES FOR LOCAL CITIZENS:

GPs referred 277 patients through the social prescribing platform (alternative to traditional approaches) for assistance and support.

Community-based, multi-disciplinary teams discussed 231 individual patients.

4,740 patients were contacted to offer support and signposting.

Intermediate Care

Both ICF and Transformation Funds support a range of intermediate care services that provide citizens with the care they require as close to their own home as possible. Local citizens can be admitted from home (step-up), or from one of the larger hospitals (step down).

Our Priorities

AGEING WELL

We know how hard it can be to find help when people need it the most. We want to make sure there is community support to help people stay as healthy as possible so they can carry on doing the things that matter most to them.

LIVING WELL

As a Partnership we have worked together with people with a learning disability, their families, carers and the third and independent sector to produce a clear direction for the planning and delivery of adult learning disability services across the region over the next five years.
