Comments Off on South Kent CCG – New Romney hub

We have been appointed, via the Crown Commercial Services management consulting framework, to work with the South Kent CCG, local GPs, Kent Community Health, NHS Property Services and local town, district and county councils on plans to build a new community health and wellbeing hub in New Romney.  The hub will bring together a wide range of statutory sector commissioned services into new purpose built facilities.  This will enable the better integration of health and care services, as well as assisting in making out of hospital and primary care services in the area, more resilient.

Rubicon and Medical Architecture have been working with Dorset HealthCare to explore a one-off opportunity to bring mental health and community health services together on a single site to serve the west of the county.  Our work led to the development of a strategic outline case which has been presented to the trust’s board for approval.

Rubicon is providing support to colleagues in the Somerset STP to develop new models of care to facilitate more people being treated out of acute hospital settings.  The project is focused on understanding how admission rates and length of stay can be reduce so the system is less reliant upon the two local acute hospitals, and will inform the pattern of provision of community, primary care and social care services in neighbourhood teams and Somerset’s community hospitals.

Following successful delivery of QIPP Phase 3 assurance reviews, we have now started work on several QIPP Phase 4 projects.  These include working with the Bath & North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire health and care system to develop new services and processes designed to reduce the amount of time patients stay in acute hospitals.
