Rotherham’s Health and Social Care Community (list of partners below) has been working in a collaborative way for the several years to transform the way it cares and achieves positive change for its population of 261,000. We are passionate about providing the best possible services and outcomes for our population and are committed to a whole system partnership approach, as we recognise that it is only through working together that we can provide sustainable services over the long-term that aim to help Rotherham people live well for longer.
Our common vision is: ‘Supporting people and families to live independently in the community, with prevention and self-management at the heart of our delivery’.
The Rotherham Integrated Health and Social Care Place Plan 2020 - 2022, updates our first place plan, developed in November 2016, and closely aligns to the Rotherham Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2018 - 2025. The place plan details our joined up approach to delivering five key initiatives that will help us achieve our Health and Wellbeing Strategic Aims.
Key Partners Involved in the Rotherham Place Plan:
The development of Rotherham place digital strategy has been undertaken collaboratively, involving the organisations that constitute the Rotherham Integrated Care Partnership (ICP). The digital strategy can be viewed here.
South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System
The South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (ICS) is a partnership of 23 organisations responsible for looking after the health and care of the 1.5 million people living in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield. It is made up of NHS organisations (including us), local authorities and key voluntary sector and independent partners in our region.
An Integrated Care System is another way of describing the ambition we have locally to ensure health and care services are the best they can possibly be. By working together we will be able to better join up GPs and hospitals, physical and mental healthcare, social care and the NHS and give our patients the seamless care they have told us they want.
Through partnership working, we believe we can make real and long lasting improvements to the health of local people. As individuals and organisations working alone, we would never be able to achieve the same results.
Our goal is simple. We want everyone in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw to have a great start in life, with the support they need to stay healthy and live longer. To find out more visit: https://www.healthandcaretogethersyb.co.uk/
In 2017 the partners who now form the Integrated Care System published a System Transformation Plan for South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw. Following the publication of the NHS Long Term Plan earlier in 2019 partners are now working together to create a new 5 year plan, which sets out how South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw organisations will work together to help deliver the Long Term Plan in our area.
