Steps are being taken to help improve the lives of East Riding residents by focusing on hospital discharge at the upcoming Health and Wellbeing Board meeting at City Health Care Partnership CIC, 5 Beacon Way, Hull, HU3 4AE on Thursday, 31 January at 2pm.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council supports residents to live healthy lifestyles through the current Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which covers four stages of life, each of which looks specifically at the key health and wellbeing issues for that stage:
• Start Well – pregnancy and the early years
• Develop Well – childhood through to adolescence
• Live and Work Well – adulthood and working life
• Age Well and End of Life – retirement and later life
The agenda on Thursday will cover the life stage 4, Age Well and End of Life, which includes discussions on the proportion of older people (65 and older) who were still at home 91 days after discharge from hospital into reablement/rehabilitation services, as well as the percentage of emergency re-admissions within 30 days of discharge.
The council’s approach to keeping people at home after hospital discharge involves investment in the Improved Better Care Fund schemes, development of the active recovery model and community links.
The council recognises that it is important to work with partner health organisations, especially at this time of year, in order to give East Riding residents the best possible health outcomes.
Partners across the East Riding have worked together in the spirit of collaboration for many years and include the following organisations:
• East Riding of Yorkshire Voluntary & Community Sector
• Primary Care Federation of Federations
• Humberside Fire & Rescue Service
• East Riding of Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group
• East Riding of Yorkshire Council
• Hull & East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
• Humberside Police
• Humber Teaching NHS Foundation Trust
• City Health Care Partnership CIC
• Yorkshire Ambulance Service
The Health and Wellbeing Board is also focusing on the East Riding Safeguarding Children Board annual, report, the Housing Strategy update and the Health and Wellbeing Board Work Programme.
Councillor Jonathan Owen, chair of the Health and Wellbeing Board, said: “The work to improve the lives of those who have been discharged from hospital, or who need support and guidance on healthy living, is a key priority to ensure the health and wellbeing of East Riding residents and connecting individuals with appropriate services and community assets is of great importance to us.
“The Board is an important tool in driving forward change in relation to the health and social care needs of East Riding residents and is the perfect platform from which to continue the good work that is already being done locally to address these key priorities.”
