Abstract

A qualitative study was conducted to evaluate the Neighborhood Team Project. West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) initiated neighborhood teams in the West Essex area in October 2015; a neighborhood contains all levels of health care and social care providers but on a smaller scale. The Neighborhood Team model allows providers to deliver efficient patient-centred care. For the past six months, West Essex CCG encountered challenges in deploying the model to 7 neighborhood areas. To evaluate the progress of this on-going project, 24 people were interviewed with a survey. Samples are from West Essex CCG, GP practice, the Voluntary Sector, Social Care and Princess Alexandra Hospital (PAH). 10 major themes and 30 sub-themes were identified; over 30 practical suggestions were found through interview transcripts.
