Children's care in the community: using integration and innovation to address inequalities
19 May 2022
If you want to have any hope of addressing health inequalities, you have to start with children. In the context of increasing complexity and demand, growing waiting times and challenges with recruiting and retaining specialist staff, all exacerbated by the pandemic, how do you continue to deliver health services in a safe and sustainable way? We will talk about what we are doing in Sheffield to integrate health, education and social care into locality based multidisciplinary teams, tailored to the needs of communities, in a 'team around the school' approach. We will provide examples of delivering what would traditionally be healthcare interventions through a delegated skills framework, empowering the workforce to support the needs of children and young people.
