Academic partners

  • Champions of change
  • Commissioners of care

Citizens’ Board & Citizens’ Forum

  • Providers of care
  • Leaders and citizens across the care system have come together to improve value: raising quality and experience whilst reducing overall costs
  • Local CCGs and LAs
  • AHSC
  • LAs, GPs and FTs
  • Southwark and Lambeth Integrated Care
Our initial focus has been with the frail and elderly:The Older People’s Programme focuses on resolving real challenges for the system…

Reducing delays to discharge to maximise independent living



Anticipated benefits

Providing alternative urgent response


  • By 2015/16:
  • Bed Reduction
  • (through reduced admissions & LOS)
  • 23,500 bed days saved
  • Equates to 32 beds for each acute
  • Social Care Reduction
  • 20% reduction in residential packages
  • Equates to 133 less packages of care
  • Improved patient experience





Internal and external processes often make it difficult to discharge people in a timely and effective way

There are too few options other than the hospital, so people who don’t need it end up in acute care



Early identification and intervention to avoid crisis

Too little emphasis is placed on keeping people healthy and avoiding the development of crises

How can I look after myself?

Who gives me the advice I need?

Is anyone looking out for my condition getting worse?

  • Falls
  • Infection
  • Nutrition
  • Dementia



Proactive management: the most complex patients often lack targeted interventions to manage their health

Clinical pathways: there is too little focus on preventing ill health in the general population

…it aims to deal with the source of the demand rather than just to deal with the consequences of ever-increasing activity


Turn off the tap

Mop up the water



SLIC Intervention

Target Population

Providing alternative urgent response

Reducing delays to discharge to maximise independent living

Proactive identification & intervention

Improved clinical pathways

  • TALK helpline
  • Hot clinic
  • Enhanced rapid response
  • @Home
  • Simplified discharge
  • Reablement
  • Risk stratification, proactive assessments, care management and CMDTs
  • Care homes & home care
  • Falls
  • Infections
  • Nutrition
  • Dementia


  • A range of different interventions are being tested to see if they help address our core challenges


Early identification and intervention to avoid crisis


Through the course of the programme we have begun to see a change in practice, which is demonstrated through a change in activity…

Norman is 82 years old and lives alone in a warden controlled flat.

He attends A&E regularly but never requires admission.

He was referred to and discussed at a CMDT

The Integrated Care Manager (ICM) looked into the pattern of Norman’s A&E attendances; they were always on Sunday afternoons.

The ICM spoke with Norman and found out that Norman has meals on wheels Mon-Fri lunchtimes.

He has no other cooking facilities in his home, so in the evenings and on a Saturday, Norman goes to his local cafe.

The cafe is not open on Sundays. Norman told the ICM that he

goes to A&E on a Sunday as he likes the lunch they give him and the company.

The ICM arranged for Norman to have meals on wheels changed so that he received lunch and dinner on a Sunday and the ICM has arranged for a tea gathering to happen on Sunday afternoons in his block of flats to help with his loneliness.

  • …and more importantly, through an improvement in the care experiences of real people like Norman



Jane lives on an estate in Southwark.

She has poor balance, so she uses crutches to help her walk

She volunteers in her local estate office to help with her wellbeing

She is nervous on her crutches and has falls occasionally

She needs a wheelchair in winter as she feels unsafe on crutches

She does not meet the criteria for a wheelchair

Over winter for 5 months she stays indoors, her depression worsens and she gets admitted to a local Mental Health Trust

Bob had a stroke in 2009 which left with an

extremely limited ability to speak.

He was taken to A&E by his carers several times and admitted due to pain

The geriatrician noticed that Bob had been in hospital several times and referred him to a CMDT.

To understand the cause of his pain, the CMDT arranged for speech and language therapists to work with Bob.

They found out that he had the ability to communicate through pictures. The CMDT identified that Bob had a frequent turnover of carersand they were finding it very difficult to communicate with him.

All those who work with Bob now use pictures. This has resulted in Bob being able to communicate, he is in less pain, he is less stressed and there is a significant reduction in his attendances at A&E.

  • However stories of our citizens indicate we need to transform the care system…
