The Whole Systems approach is to deliver integrated care based around the needs of service users and patients rather than being constrained by historical structures.

Health Care Coordinators

Health and Social Care Coordinators play a key coordinating role at the heart of the GP peer Groups and Virtual wards.

Health and Social Care Coordinators ensure that our most vulnerable patients in Harrow receive the co-ordinated care they depend on, care which is responsive to their needs and designed in cooperation with patients, carers and all supporting services.

WSIC

The Whole Systems integrated care programme is an initiative designed to proactively support and care our vulnerable older patients with multiple complex conditions, with the aim of keeping them well and safe within their own homes as well as empowering and supporting them to maintain full and independent lives and avoiding admission to hospital.

The Whole systems Integrated CARE (WSIC) team work with a wide range of partner organisations and stakeholders, including acute trusts, mental health trusts, local authorities, community services and primary care, as well as voluntary sector organisations.

We provide an integrated service with groups of professionals working together, caring for patients in the community, including consultants, GPs, community nurses, pharmacists and social workers. We put patients at the heart of our service and aim to bring the right care to patients at the right time closer to home.
