YourNorwich is our new programme to transform and integrate health and care in the communities of Norwich.
We want to join up and strengthen local health and care services in the community. It's likely there’ll be a particular focus on helping older patients and people with long-term conditions to stay safe and well at home rather than to go to hospital.
YourNorwich schemes which have been introduced so far include:
- Intravenous medicines given at home rather than in hospital
- A volunteer patient support scheme run by Age UK Norwich
- Additional community heart failure nurse specialists
- A website which helps patients find local help provided by voluntary organisations working in Norwich
