The Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre

Medical Architecture as Architects

The Jean Bishop Integrated Care Centre (ICC) in Hull officially opened on Friday 6th July 2018 during the week the NHS celebrates its 70th birthday. This innovative new facility, the first of its type in the UK, is set to transform care for older people in Hull by providing out of hospital care, reducing unnecessary hospital admissions, enabling residents to keep fit, healthy and living independently in their own homes.

 

In a new and unique approach to health and care, the groundbreaking services and new clinically led team will primarily treat 12,000 frail older people in Hull with long term conditions who have been assessed by their GP as being at risk of hospital admission.

 

The Centre has a comprehensive specialist team including Older People’s Consultants/Geriatricians, Advance Nurse Practitioners, GPs, Pharmacists, Therapists, Social Workers and the voluntary sector. There are diagnostics at the centre enabling the team to undertake blood tests, x-rays and in the future CT scans.

 

Dr Dan Harman, Consultant Geriatrician at City Health Care Partnership CIC who runs the services in the centre explains:

“It’s a totally different way of caring for patients. A member of our team visits the patient in their own home to undertake an assessment and identify issues that the patient wishes to discuss with the team when they attend the ICC. These issues often range from concerns about their health, social interaction or anything they are struggling with. Not only does this help the patient and carer understand what to expect at the ICC but it also helps us identify which members of the team they need to see.”

 

The centre, which sits on the site of the former David Lister School in East Hull has been open since May 2018. In the longer term the aim is to reduce unplanned admissions by up to 20%. This has been forecasted to save the NHS up to £5.8 million, which the CCG says it could then reinvest in new services.

 

Humberside Fire and Rescue also has an operational fire station on site and provide a falls response team as well as responding to other fire and rescue incidents.   Discussions are underway to explore the crews also supporting rehabilitation and recovery of patients. 

 

Paul Yeomans, Director at Medical Architecture, said:

“The challenge of the project, faced by Medical Architecture and the team, lay in building the brief without an end-user of the building. Working directly with the CCG, Community Health Partnerships and Citycare we analysed data and tested scenarios to make sure space provision was optimised. An 18% reduction in floor space was achieved without losing functionality. This was a major factor enabling Business Case approval. After this, it was all about making the Centre the best it could possibly be. I’m very proud of the outcome and hope it serves Hull well. ”
