Birmingham Better Care

Birmingham Better Care is a programme between the NHS and Birmingham City Council which aims to improve how health and social care services work together for the benefit of local people.

NHS and social care services in Birmingham are now caring for people with increasingly complex needs and multiple conditions. We therefore need to do things differently to make sure we can provide the best care, both now and in the future.

The best way to deliver care is to organise it around the person who needs it, and that person’s care team should work together to keep them healthier for longer. Every different service should work seamlessly together, with no gaps or unnecessary delays.

Birmingham Better Care is one of the most concrete steps ever towards making this change happen and it is the start of a new way of working.

The ambitions of Birmingham Better Care are certainly challenging but the end goal is necessary. We all want better care for our families and ourselves as we grow older. Birmingham Better Care will put people at the centre of care and will empower professionals to do what they do best.
