We want you to have more care closer to your home...

Neighbourhoods involvement

A key priority for NHS Sheffield CCG is to improve the health and wellbeing of Sheffield residents by planning and buying more care and support away from hospitals in neighbourhoods - closer to where people live.

In Sheffield, GP practices have joined together to form 15 groups across the city – known as neighbourhoods – along with their ‘neighbours’ from hospital, community, mental health, social care, housing services and local voluntary groups. Each neighbourhood covers a population of around 30-50,000 people.

Practices work together to coordinate health and social care for people in their local area, and consider how to make the best and most effective use of local services.

Each neighbourhood has a set of priorities based on the health and social needs of their particular area. There is also a strong focus on preventing ill health, reducing unnecessary hospital admissions and supporting people to gain control of their own health and wellbeing.

We are working with the South Yorkshire Community Foundation (SYCF) to provide a grant to community organisations who can engage with, and seek feedback from, their local community to identify their needs and priorities for health and care services in their neighbourhood.

If you are a community organisation that is interested in applying for this grant in return for engaging with members of the community within the 15 Neighbourhood areas in Sheffield, please see our full brief and application here. Organisations may choose to apply to deliver the work required for more than one Neighbourhood.

Completed applications should be submitted by no later than 17:00 on 28 July 2019 to richard.kennedy4@nhs.net.
