Hertfordshire is an Early Adopter of Integrated Personal Commissioning. Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC) is an ambitious programme that seeks to systematically harness the potential of people and their families, to be active co-producers of their care and support.
Hertfordshire was selected by NHS England as their second site to invest support from Nesta to complete a ‘100 day challenge’. Nesta is an innovation charity and the aim of the challenge is to rapidly test integrated and personalised practice at pace, to identify opportunities for personalised budgets and integrated support planning.
Three teams have been formed (St Albans, Hertford and Hoddesdon) and each are made up of a GP, social workers from Adult Care Services in the County Council, rapid response nurses and therapists from Herts Community Trust, mental health professionals from Herts Partnership Foundation Trust, a voluntary sector representative, a community navigator, a person with lived experience and a carer. On the 8th February 2018 all team members will present their work to date and share the inspiring stories and case studies on the difference they have made over the 100 days. Senior leaders and executive sponsors will be present to respond to the challenge and make plans for beyond 100 days.
