First 5 members of the Partnership of Purpose announced

Share this page

Friday 28 August 2020

Over the last four years, the Committee for Health & Social Care has been working with public, private and third sector providers to develop a new model of health and care premised on a Partnership of Purpose, concentrated on providing integrated care which places the user at its centre and provides greater focus on prevention and early intervention.

Work over this time has been split between developing the necessary foundations for such a transformation - including design work to modernise the Hospital site and exploring the development of complementary community hubs, reforming how health and care funding is managed within the States of Guernsey, receiving approval for the future model of health and care regulation and progressing plans to invest in how patient records are managed digitally - and seeking to accelerate key tangible work streams aligned to the values of the Partnership of Purpose. These have been wide ranging but have included the development of social prescribing, the commencement of a programme of joint strategic needs assessments to better inform how and where services are most appropriately provided and numerous projects looking to improve islanders' experiences, for example the introduction of a new diagnostic service in cardiology, advances in pain management and work to provide greater support to some local families.

HSC is now in a position where it can start formally accrediting those public, private and third sector partners working to realise the Partnership's values.As an initial step, the first 5 members of the Partnership of Purpose have been announced today:-

Each organisation plays a different role in the overall Partnership; either by providing frontline healthcare services, raising awareness, seeking to shape future policy or providing preventative services to the community. Together they have demonstrated their commitment to working towards a healthier and happier Bailiwick.

Deputy Heidi Soulsby, HSC President said:

'I am delighted to announce that Queens Road Medical Practice, the Health Improvement Commission, Choices, Beau Sejour and Public Health Services have all signed up to become members of the Partnership of Purpose. All five recipients fully embody the spirit of collaborative working and putting the service user at the centre of their decision making and I am pleased that we could formally recognise their role. For the public it means that they can be assured that where they see the kitemark, those providers support the key principles of the Partnership of Purpose and in particular, joined-up person-centred care.

'This is just the beginning of a much wider accreditation process and in the coming months, further applications to join the Partnership will be encouraged.'
