Joint Event with Nroth East Wales Wellbeing Network and BCUHB



Diary Marker – 29th June 2017

Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board (BCUHB) is hosting a series of joint events with the North East Wales Wellbeing Network.  The first session will be held on the 29th June 2017 and will look at how we can work more collaboratively to improve outcomes for our population.

The first part of this session will be dedicated to build upon current working practices with a key aim of identifying how we can improve communication to provide clarity for all of us.

Objectives of this session will be:

A second interactive session will focus on the proposed Comprehensive Older Person’s Assessment Unit at Wrexham Maelor.

Comprehensive Older Person’s Assessment Unit

The East Area team with partners is currently planning the establishment of a co-located Comprehensive Older Person’s Assessment (COPA) at the Wrexham Maelor site.  This unit will streamline frail patients from the Emergency Department so they can receive rapid assessment and intervention by a dedicated multi-disciplinary team and also support patients requiring rapid assessment from primary care.  The aim is to identify the acute needs of the patients with the intention of avoiding admission where possible and thus improving patient outcomes.

Outcomes/Benefits of the Unit would be:

We would like to explore with our Third Sector partners, how we can identify opportunities to support this new development and how you could offer your support to patients managed through this new service.

The objectives of this session will be:


This event will provide an opportunity to raise awareness amongst healthcare professionals of the current Third Sector landscape, the type of support that is available and for all parties to collaborate and communicate more effectively.


A further follow-up session will be planned for the 27th July 2017 – further details will be sent out is due course.


Booking forms and further information will be distributed by 15th June – please get in touch if you are interested in attending the event on the 29th June in Wrexham
