Better Care


NHS East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group, East Riding of Yorkshire Council and other partner organisations are working closer together to transform the way health and care is delivered to patients by bringing services closer together. 

Our Shared Vision for Better Care
“People live healthy and independent lives, in control of their health and wellbeing, and are able to access care and support at home and in their community.”

To find out more about how we are working together, you can watch a short film that was made at our Better Care conference in July 2015. More information about the conference and the feedback report is available here.

Sam's Story - what the future will look like
Too often we see care that is uncoordinated, leaving people going in and out of hospital because somewhere in the system their care has broken down. Our aim is to make health and social care services work together to provide better support at home and earlier treatment in the community to prevent people needing urgent care in hospital or early admission into care homes.

Keeping you informed - our progress
Issued on behalf of all partner organisations, our Better Care Stakeholder Bulletins are aimed at keeping people up to date with our progress:

Our Plan for Better Care 
In 2014, we worked closely with patients, carers, members of the public and health and social care professionals to develop our initial Better Care plan (vision) to get the best health and social care services for people in the East Riding.  Better Care was initially a one year initiative but this has since been extended to continue in 2017-19 with the introduction of additional funding for Adult Social Care known as the Improved Better Care Fund (iBCF).

The latest iBCF plan includes the following workstreams agreed by the Health and Well Being Board in June 2017:  

  • Wellbeing and Social Prescribing.
  • Active Recovery Model.
  • Care Market.
  • Information Technology.
  • Winter 2017/18 Initiatives.

The full iBCF Plan for 2017-19 is available here. Please read the above bulletins to keep up-to-date with progress being made.
