The vision for Neighbourhood Working in Lincolnshire is simple:
“ Empowering the local population to take an active role in their health and wellbeing, with greater choice and control ”
The Neighbourhood Working programme in Lincolnshire has adopted the four key characteristics of the Primary Care Home Model:
- An integrated workforce with a strong focus on collaboration and partnership working – spanning general practice, hospital and community services. These include physical and mental health, social care, independent providers & third sector partners such as charities
- A combined focus on personalisation of care with improvements in population health outcomes, including prevention, self-care and self-management
- Aligned clinical and financial expectations for partners with shared risks and rewards
- Provision of care to a defined, registered population of between 30,000 – 75,000 for each neighbourhood
Our neighbourhoods will wrap care and services around individuals, empowering them to self-care where possible and guiding them to the right services when needed, not just throughout the NHS but across council and social care services, care homes, charitable organisations and other care providers.
