Integrated Locality Teams
In the future we want to deliver more care and support in the community than in the acute sector.
Integrated Locality Teams will be responsible for joining up and coordinating the care provided by multiple professionals to patients within their defined geographical place (locality).
The focus for phase 1 of our programme will be groups of patients who we consider most at risk of their care escalating into the acute setting, especially if their care plan is not well coordinated in the community.
We have identified and prioritised three groups of patients who will initially benefit from the Integrated Locality Team model in Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland.
Integrated Locality Teams will concentrate on the following with effect from April 2017:
- Adults with five or more long term conditions.
- Adults whose acute care costs are predicted to be three times the average over the next twelve months.
- People with a frailty marker regardless of age (impaired function)
