NHS England and NHS Improvement have produced a video featuring Surrey Heartlands partner Epsom and St Helier University Hospitals NHS Trust and its Epsom@Home multidisciplinary team initiative.
Epsom@Home champions greater team working between different types of clinicians, social workers and other health and care professionals. The video also features Richard as an example of how it is helping to keep people like him out of hospital.
This way of working is recognised as more rewarding for staff with patients benefiting from high-quality care closer to home. Epsom and St Helier Chief Executive Daniel Elkeles said: “Really proud to see our staff sharing their experience of creating a truly integrated team across the traditional boundaries of acute, primary, social and community care. We have created some amazing partnerships, and this video is definitely worth a watch!”
