Health and care services in South Gloucestershire are working on a new approach called Better Care South Gloucestershire. The approach focuses on putting individuals, especially the frail and elderly, at the heart of joined-up health and care services and supporting them to live safely and independently in their communities so that they have fewer health crises and fewer admissions to hospital.
