Welcome to the latest edition of #BSWTogether

Welcome to the latest edition of #BSWTogether, a newsletter for everyone working in partner organisations in the BSW Integrated Care System.

There’s plenty going on across the BSW Integrated Care System at the moment, so why not take five minutes to find out more?

Innovation is central to the growth of our ICS and it’s something that was discussed at a recent focus group. As a result of this, the BSW Academy is offering some training to help encourage innovation. You can find out how to get involved in this issue.

We’re also developing a BSW Integrated Care Strategy. This is an important document which sets out what improvements BSW Together Integrated Care System partners will deliver for local people including tackling health inequalities and delivering better, more personalised services. You can get involved with this and find more information below.

A project to develop shared Electronic Patient Records has taken a step forwards. Find out more about this here.

Elsewhere in this issue of #BSWTogether, we look at a great poetry project at Salisbury Hospital which is helping staff after the Covid pandemic, find out why volunteers and colleagues are bidding a fond farewell to some of our long standing vaccination centres, find out how staff are sharing love for our services this valentine’s day and learn more about an upcoming conference focusing on innovation.

Thank you for reading and please let us know what you think about #BSWTogether and what you’d find useful for us to cover in future issues by emailing bswicb.partnership@nhs.net
