Integrated Care in South Tyneside
Why do we want to integrate?
Feedback has been received, through things like our patient stories, that services do not always feel joined up, both within healthcare and across health and social care, with professionals not always communicating well between each other about individuals in their care.
People are finding that they have to “tell their story” to multiple professionals. Assessments and care planning are done separately, with records not being shared. Our local experience is generally in line with how things are working nationally. Click here to find out more from South Tyneside Council.
