Developing a network of care

 

Award amount: £998,145

Lead organisation: Mid and East Antrim Agewell Partnership (MEAAP)

The Trust has made the award to enable the delivery of IMPACT (Involving Many to Prescribe Alternative Care Together), a new programme of community-based care and support for older people encompassing a wide range of activities, services and support.  It aims to reach a minimum of 1,100 people aged 65 years and over in Mid and East Antrim, through up to 13,200 funded “alternative care prescriptions”.

Through the mechanism of Community Partnership Agreements, the services of GP practices, community pharmacists and staff from a range of community-based organisations and public care services will be co-ordinated by local health and well-being hubs. If successful, the partnership hopes to see the project replicated in other local authority areas.

The IMPACT project launched in June, 2017.  Take a look at the latest news and information from MEAAP…
