Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre
The Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre is in East Hull and is part of a new service commissioned by NHS Hull CCG. It has been built specially to care for older people in the community and is run by City Health Care Partnership CIC.
Patients will be able to have a comprehensive assessment through an Integrated Care team that includes doctors, nurses, therapists (like physiotherapists and podiatrists), pharmacists and social care teams. This team will discuss all your health, social and personal care needs with you and they will make sure you have a clear plan on how to address these needs.
They will also be able to check blood tests and carry out X-rays on site as required.
If you have been identified by your GP as likely to benefit from an assessment, you will be invited to attend the Jean Bishop Centre, where you will be met by your allocated care co-ordinator who will accompany you during your appointment. You are also welcome to bring a friend, relative or carer with you.
The Jean Bishop Centre will also have a cafe area, run by a charity, which will provide complimentary refreshments to patients attending for appointments.
Your assessment will take place during the morning, then in the afternoon you can attend a meeting with healthcare professionals to talk about your treatment plan. Once a plan has been decided, it will be shared with your GP and any other clinicians involved in you care. If you need a referral to other health or care services, the team can do this too.
