As a Vanguard the Happy, Healthy, at Home programme is developing new models of care and it is important that we understand the impact these changes are having on patients, staff and the wider health & social care system.
To help us evaluate what we have achieved, we work with Wessex Academic Health Science Network, who act as our independent evaluators. They review data, survey results, interviews with staff and patients and undertake a wide range of analysis to help us explore the difference these new ways of delivering care are having.
They have already evaluated some of the changes happening and by using the links below you can read the reports they have written.
Clinicians, practitioners and other professionals from health and social care working together as a single team for Farnham patients with highly complex needs who require support from different agencies and organisations.
By working more closely together the team ensures that all aspects of a patient's care can be covered and all their needs met in a comprehensive and efficient way and that cross-agency solutions can be used to provide a better overall service.
The joint approach also prevents patients from 'slipping through the gaps' between organisations.

As with the Farnham team above, the Yateley Integrated Care Team brings together a range of different professionals to provide a joint solution to the problems faced by Yateley residents with complex and chronic health needs.
They discuss patients' conditions and combine their expertise and organisational capabilities to make the patient's experience of health and care services as smooth and positive as possible, with better outcomes.
