Bolton Health And Care Partnership - Building a brighter future with you in mind

Why Use The
Neighbourhood Model

The neighbourhood model

The neighbourhood model of care in Bolton is based on nine neighbourhoods.

The partners involved in Bolton’s Integrated Care Partnership are working together to design and deliver a very different approach to health and care; to deliver real improvements to local people’s experience of services and to ultimately improve their health.

The Neighbourhood Model

Often, people needing care and support can experience a lot of processes and assessments which can be difficult to understand and navigate.

We know that people sometimes feel their voice isn’t heard or what matters to them isn’t prioritised.

And we realise that we need to do more to join up and co-ordinate health and care services.

Our model of care aims to radically change how we work, ensuring we put people at the heart of everything thing we do by listening to them and understanding what they need to be happy, healthy and live as independently as possible.

The model of care in Bolton will look at the needs of each neighbourhood.

Each neighbourhood is different and people living in Farnworth will experience different health challenges to those living in Turton. The aim for each neighbourhood will be to improve the health of its population and to ensure a better experience for patients.

Working in this way will also enable the ICP to make better use of resources (money and buildings) and create a system that will last for the future.

In July 2019, a new Primary Care Network (PCN) was established in Bolton which broadly reflects a similar footprint to the nine neighbourhoods. As a result, you may hear ‘neighbourhoods’ referred to as ‘networks’ and vice versa.



Why do we want to do this?

Working together across all organisations is a great way to make the best use of the services we have and helps to avoid duplication.
