Urgent Community Response VCSE Workshop

Posted on

Thursday 10th February 2022 from 10am – 12pm

NHS Calderdale Clinical Commissioning Group (‘CCG’), Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust (‘CHFT’), Local Care Direct (‘LCD’) and Calderdale Council are working together to implement a new service across Calderdale, known as the ‘Urgent Community Response’ (‘UCR’) service, and is being launched from 6 December 21.

The aim of the UCR is to reduce hospital bed occupancy, by reducing avoidable admissions and supporting early discharge.  The UCR team will give those who need it, fast access to a range of qualified professionals who can address both their health and social care needs. People will be able to access a response from a team of skilled professionals within two hours, to provide the care they need to remain independent and avoid an admission to hospital. They could then be supported up to 2 days where needed.

UCR is the biggest development in community services within the last decade. Initially the service will be 9am-5pm Monday to Friday, with the aim of being 24/7 next year.

We are looking to link with the VCSE for their knowledge and expertise to see if there are any opportunities for organisations/communities to help enhance the UCR model and support the individuals who are in receipt of the UCR service. There also may be potential funding to support this.
