Shaping services – engagement library
Our priority is to ensure that the people in Haringey have access to safe, well co-ordinated, high quality health services and we are committed to involving the local community in the process to shape, plan and commission these services.
This section provides more information about some of our key areas of work and how we have engaged and involved local people in developing our plans for health services in Haringey.
Services for older people
The Better Care Fund (BCF) is a joint fund which has been created between Haringey Council and Haringey CCG to improve the way health and social care services work together.
Adult mental health
As a CCG, we are committed to commissioning services that will support and enable local people to achieve and maintain good mental health and wellbeing.
Haringey CCG recently reviewed all the services that we commission for patients with musculoskeletal conditions, with the aim to change and improve how these services are provided in the future.
Primary care estates
Haringey CCG has been doing a lot of work to improve GP facilities and access to GP surgeries across the borough.
Care closer to home
Haringey CCG’s proposed model for primary care focuses on more joined-up working amongst health and social care professionals to deliver more person centred care to patients.
Urgent care services
In 2018 Healthwatch Enfield carried out some research which found that large numbers of people were using A&E at North Middlesex University Hospital when they could perhaps have been seen and treated elsewhere.
GP Hubs review
Between January and April 2018 Healthwatch Haringey carried out a review on Haringey’s GP Hubs' services. They produced a report of the findings, with recommendations for the CCG to review and consider.
Improving NHS Continuing Healthcare communications
In March 2019, we asked Healthwatch Haringey volunteers to read and review a number of letters sent to patients at various stages of being assessed for, or receiving, continuing healthcare funding from Haringey CCG.
