THE TICC PROJECT
DEVELOPMENT OF THE DUTCH BUURTZORG MODEL AT A TRANSNATIONAL LEVEL
The Buurtzorg model, a new organizational model of homebased care and services has had a significant impact in the Netherlands, for over 10 years now. It relies on self-managing teams of 12 carers and nurses, based at a neighborhood level and handling each aspect of care, ensuring their financial sustainability.
This model has led to a significant decrease in back-office need, a shift from the traditional manager to coach whose role is to provide advice to ensure the team's autonomy and, for patients, provision of health and care services at home at a lower price but with higher quality intervention resulting in fewer unplanned hospital admissions.
The aim of the TICC (Transforming Integrated Care in the Community) project is to adapt and implement this model across the rest of the 2 Seas area (United Kingdom, Belgium and France). This project is supported by Interreg 2 Seas.

KENT COUNTY COUNCIL: BRINGING BUURTZORG TO KENT & MEDWAY
 
The Transforming Integrated Care in the Community (TICC) project and the Buurtzorg model have been welcomed in Kent, “Fascinating, really interesting and loved that a practioner was able to talk about the model”. This is just one of the views from one of our attendees who attended our “Bringing Buurtzorg to Kent & Medway” events to introduce the project and model.

The “Bringing Buurtzorg to Kent & Medway” events were delivered jointly between Kent County Council, Kent Community Health Foundation Trust and Medway Community Healthcare. We were pleased to invite and be joined by Paul Jansen from Public World who introduced Buurtzorg to our stakeholders and Madelon van Tilburg, a Buurtzorg nurse who shared what a day in the life of a Buurtzorg nurse looks like. The events ran across Kent and Medway from 27th March to 29th March 2018 and were attended by over 100 people including health and social care staff, commissioners and members of the public.

In Kent our next steps are focussing on recruitment, we are looking to recruit a coach and to start looking at the teams and what they will look like in terms of skills and competencies. Following this work we will be running a recruitment campaign to recruit into the team.
