Community nursing services in Hull will be provide Community nursing services in Hull will be delivered by an independent provider

Hull CCG has awarded contracts for its integrated community care, urgent care and sexual health services to City Health Care Partnership CIC (CHCP CIC).

The independent health service provider, CHCP CIC, will be responsible for delivering community nursing services to patients in the Hull area from April 2016. It will also provide out-of-hours general practice services, long-term condition management, physical therapy, and palliative care.

CHCP CIC will focus on enhancing collaboration and integration with social care services, and local hospitals and general practices. Emma Latimer, chief officer of NHS Hull CCG, said: 'We know that we have a challenge to improve health, wellbeing and life expectancy in our communities. We therefore wanted to ensure that the new contracts seek to deliver integrated and seamless services which measurably improve health outcomes for local people.

Andrew Burnell, CHCP CIC's chief executive, said: 'We are extremely pleased to have been given the go-ahead to provide these important services for the people of Hull. It's a fantastic opportunity for us to be able to build on the work we've started and also to start to do things differently so that we can truly meet the needs of the local population.'

Urgent care services include GP out of hours and minor injury units and help to divert patients from A&E, easing the pressure on Hull Royal Infirmary. These will be enhanced to further improve the offer to the communities in Hull.

Integrated sexual health services, which range from community gynaecology to vasectomy, will be provided 7 days a week from five health centres across the city, with a central hub at the Wilberforce Centre in Hull.

CHCP CIC is an employee-owned business that reinvests its profits into the delivery of healthcare. It provides services such as district nursing, community children's nursing, school nursing, health visitors and prison nursing across the Hull and Lincolnshire areas. It has previously provided community nursing services to Hull CCG, and will continue to with the enhanced focus on integration.

This provider is not known for its integration with other services. Interested to see how they will do things differently. Can't help feeling it will be more of the same old same old: Hull CCG missed an opportunity.
