Our Year - Annual Report 2016/17
Our Annual Report and Accounts for 2016/17 sets out what the CCG has achieved in the past 12 months against the plans we have put in place to improve the advice, support and care services that help local people have a good quality of life, recover from periods of ill health as close to home as possible, make healthier choices and remain active, engaged and independent for as long as they can. We also want to support local communities to do more for themselves and for each other
This has been another year where all NHS and Adult Social Care organisations have had to work hard to make considerable savings while planning for the future and delivering better care than ever before. The CCG saved £6.3m (health) and £1.9m (social care) while still designing innovative, quality services.
This is the CCG’s fourth year and achievements include:
- North East Lincolnshire became part of the first wave of the eagerly-anticipated Healthier You: NHS diabetes prevention programme. CCGs and local authorities across Greater Lincolnshire have teamed up with ICS Health & Wellbeing to offer people at risk of Type 2 diabetes a place on a new health scheme. Healthier You’ helps at risk patients - who will be referred to the initiative by their GPs if they have raised blood sugar - make healthier lifestyle choices and reduce their risk of developing the disease.
- An apartment building that has been specially adapted to help vulnerable adults develop their independence and have their own front door officially opened in September. The refurbished scheme provides 12 self-contained apartments in Grimsby and is the result of partnership working between NHS North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group, Homelife Supported Accommodation, a specialist developer of health and social care schemes, and Inclusion Housing, a social enterprise and registered housing provider.
- A new Minor Ailments Scheme was launched in North East Lincolnshire to provide local people with easy access to advice and medicine, and encourage self- care for long term and minor conditions. The Minor Ailment Scheme can save time and enable people to avoid waiting to see a GP, and if a person’s prescriptions are free of charge then the pharmacist can offer the same free advice and free treatment.
Eleanor Apartments - helping vulnerable adults develop their independence
North East Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Group is a unique organisation that commissions both health and adult social care services. The CCG is led by local GPs and works with its partners at the council and the organisations that provide health and care services in North East Lincolnshire.
Most importantly, the CCG is shaped by local residents and actively ask for the opinions and experiences of people who use health and care services.
