Winter Strategy

Every winter there is a rise in demand for health services. People with multiple chronic conditions, as well as older, frail people are more vulnerable during this period and have a high risk of being hospitalised during the flu season.

COORDINARE invited general practices to apply for funding for the 2019 Winter Strategy. We will support practice teams to lead heightened quality and intensity of care for a group of patients that clinicians think are at high risk of being unstable, very unwell or admitted to hospital during the 2019 flu season.

The EOI for the Winter Strategy has now closed. The successful practices will receive support and funding to develop and implement their idea.

Practices not selected or who did not apply for funding, still have the opportunity to work with their Health Coordination Consultant (HCC) to explore other opportunities to implement change in practice.
