Integrating Care for Older People: New Care for Old, a Systems Approach

By Christopher Foote; Christine Stanners | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

This book has emerged from the complexity and diversity of the working relationships that we have had with a whole variety of people over the years.

The Buckinghamshire Health Authority the Buckinghamshire Social Services and the South Buckinghamshire NHS Trust supported and made EPICS possible. Roy Darby Chief Executive of the Trust, chaired the Project Board and gave us the freedom to use the EPICS material in this book. The Wycombe and Chiltern District Councils contributed wholeheartedly to making EPICS a success.

The voluntary organizations involved with EPICS are too numerous to mention in full, but Age Concern, the Society of St Vincent de Paul, Churches Together, The Priory Centre in Wycombe, The South Buckinghamshire Carers Centre, Crossroads, The Chiltern Volunteer Bureau and the Bourne End Volunteer Bureau played a significant part in shaping the integrated system.

The Doctors’ House Surgery, Marlow; the Hawthornden Surgery, Bourne End; the Rectory Meadow Surgery, Amersham; the Riverside Surgery and the Wye Valley Surgery, High Wycombe; the New Surgery, and the Gladstone Road Surgery, Chesham all played a major role in developing the concepts of integrated care. GPs who were instrumental in making sure EPICS was grounded in good practice were Jonathan Reggler, Angela Bishop, John Hill and Michael Bowker.

Amongst social workers whose practice and insight helped the implementation of EPICS become a reality were, notably, Judith Burton, Deirdre O’Flynn, David Morgan, Wendy Price, Talat Siddiqui and Lesley Smaje.

John Moore of Newton Software, who was committed beyond the call of duty to the IT systems development, showed a sensitive understanding of the people and the EPICS ideals that was invaluable. David Lawrence helped with the early planning and epidemiology, and Dorothea Read was a highly valued sounding board and provided much wise counsel.

The EPICS volunteers, especially the team leaders, Alison Lewis and Joy Pearce, and the late Nessie Blair, between them made true integration with the community possible.

Gordon Lewis helped launch EPICS as project manager in 1994, and much of its success rests with him. Sue Palmer, as the first co-ordinator, and Catriona Gilmour-Hamilton, Sarah Lyle, Cathy Suggate, Katarina Podeski and Joan Richardson all
