The Care Quality Commission (our independent regulator), recently reviewed health and social care for the over 65’s in Bracknell Forest, Berkshire. They focused on how services work together, from GP’s and community health to hospitals and care homes.
They found that the system in Bracknell Forest is working very effectively, with a joined up approach that’s having a positive outcome on older people.
We are currently working alongside our partners on various shared initiatives that support older people to maintain their health where they live, and get access to services that are tailored to their individual needs when they need them.
We’re pleased that the CQC has recognised that the over 65's living in the area are benefiting from our joined up approach are that we’re helping them maintain their health well.
