Stoke Heath Integrated Care goes live this week– as our new contract for the delivery of health services at Stoke Heath Prison goes live!
We are working alongside two partners – Shropshire Community Health Trust (SCHT) and the Forward Trust – in a partnership called Stoke Heath Integrated Care.
A five-year contract has been commissioned by NHS England, with the option to extend it for a further two years that would take us to 2026.
It was back in September last year that we were able to announce the successful awarding of this contract to our new partnership.
Since then, a lot of work has taken place to shape the new model of care that we have created together, and which we will be embedding from this week.
Shropcom will develop the primary care aspects of the contract, while NSCHT will deliver secondary mental health and clinical substance misuse services. The Forward Trust will provide psychosocial intervention and recovery planning for substance misuse.
