Home Truths update

July 2, 2013

Over the last 6 months iMPOWER’s Home Truths have worked with a range of councils and CCGs. There are currently 11 areas involved in England and Scotland, covering 11 councils, 14 Clinical Commissioning Groups, nearly 5 million people and 3,400 GPs.

Each Home Truths programme has demonstrated that by improving relationships with GPs councils can measurably reduce demand for care, improve social care outcomes and save money.

A recent update on the programme showed two key themes emerging:

  • A poor relationship and lack of trust between GPs and social care but a real desire to improve. 56% of GPs say the relationship with social care is poor and 92% would value closer links;
  • A “perception gap” that is as important as any “provision gaps”. 46% rate reablement as poor and 59% don’t believe telecare exists in their area. It doesn’t matter how good your services are if they are not known or trusted by GPs, older people or other influencers.
