One Croydon: Care partnership extended

An alliance created between Croydon Council staff, Age UK Croydon and the local NHS so over-65s need less time in hospital has been renewed for another nine years. 

The One Croydon alliance focuses on giving residents with chronic conditions more joined-up support to improve their independence and quality of life. So far 62% fewer patients have needed care packages six weeks after hospital discharge and around 450 residents spent less time in hospital, or none at all.
