Health and social care

Hull City Council provides a wide range of care services and support to local people. We provide services for children and families, and we monitor and promote fostering and adoption for children in care.

And we also offer a variety of services to support people who have a disability, or who have mental health needs.

We offer residential care and day care for people with longer-term needs, as well as support for those who just need help for a short while.

One of our main priorities is to improve the general health and well-being of people in Hull. And by working closely with the local primary care trusts, we are working to tackle the health priorities in the city and promote healthier living. 

One of our main priorities is to improve the general health and well-being of people in Hull. And by working closely with the local primary care trusts, we are working to tackle the health priorities in the city and promote healthier living. In April 2013 there will be a Health and Wellbeing Board in place to ensure that those who plan and buy health and care services can work together to do this more effectively. This board will include Hull City Council, doctors and other health professionals. Currently the board meets on a monthly basis in shadow form, in preperation for 2013.

News – Adult Social Care

Following agreement by Cabinet at a meeting in July, the council’s adult social care team is looking at options about how future care and services could be delivered.

Our main concerns whilst working towards meeting necessary financial savings are ensuring the needs of residents are met, and that services and care provision remains uninterrupted for users.

As part of our exploration into the options, we want to ensure residents have a more flexible, responsive and modern service.

So we can make the right decision about future service provision we are currently talking with staff, stakeholder and partner organisations. A public consultation will take place later this year, as it is vital that current and future service users have a chance to have their say to ensure their needs are met.
