Sam's story - Wokingham

Within the NHS and Social Care, professional teams work together closely to ensure patients’ receive the best possible care. This joined-up approach is known as ‘integrated care’. The Kings Fund, an independent charity working to improve health and care in England, produced an animated video which tells the story of Sam – a patient and elderly widower with multiple long-term health conditions. Sam’s story highlights how ‘integrated care’ makes a big difference to someone’s life and how this approach makes excellent use of NHS resources.

Our film shows you how that vision is well on the way to becoming a reality for local residents.

'A new chapter, Sam's story in the Wokingham area' sees Sam living locally, supported by integrated health and social care teams working out of three neighbourhood clusters in Wokingham Borough.

The integrated teams work closely together to provide Sam with the joined up care and support he needs seven days a week.
