C&I working with One Housing to provide clinical care and social support under one roof

C&I is working with housing associations to help save millions yet still improve the quality of adult mental health care.

Tile House was developed through a joint initiative with C&I, One Housing and Camden Council and aims to combine high quality accommodation, dedicated clinical support and personalised social care all under one roof.

A new report, Integration That Works, shows how Tile House has:

  • helped save the NHS nearly £900,000 (over £440,000 per annum) in mental health services since it opened in 2012
  • freed-up hospital beds by reducing the number of admissions and the overall length of stay by patients needing mental health care
  • supported people with complex mental health needs to build their confidence, live independently, improve their health and overall quality of life.

The partnership scheme, the first of its kind in the UK, adopts the new Care Support Plus model and offers an alternative to staying in hospital.

Dry January 2015 - Are you up to the challenge?

Dry Jan 2015

Dry January, promoted by the awareness charity Alcohol Concern, has never been more popular, with 17,312 people taking part online last year. So, are you up to the challenge this year?

Did you know...

·         Alcohol contributes to weight gain by reducing your metabolism, as the body breaks down alcohol first, so fats and sugars are burnt off slower.

·         Going without helps your skin to recover from the dehydrating effect of alcohol, which can give it an unhealthy colour and texture.

·         Abstaining may also help give you a good night's sleep.

·         Toxins in alcohol have also be linked to cellulite.

·         The average wine drinker in England takes in around 2,000kcal from alcohol every month. Drinking five pints of lager a week adds up to 44,200kcal over a year, equivalent to eating 221 doughnuts.
