Who we are
Nottingham CityCare is an award-winning community health services provider, dedicated to improving long-term health and wellbeing. Our vision is building healthier communities. We are a social enterprise delivering a range of healthcare services tailored to the needs of local people and free at the point of delivery.
We are a provider of NHS services, but we're not the NHS. We build on the best NHS principles and support growth and regeneration.
We have the freedom to be flexible, innovative and responsive and to work with local private, public and voluntary organisations to deliver the services local people need, when and where they need them in the community.
A social enterprise is a business that trades to tackle social problems, improve communities, people's life chances, or the environment. We can bid against any organisation for the right to provide services on the open market, but we reinvest our profits back into the business or the local community. Among the many projects we have reinvested our profits into are the training of nine new community and school nurses and the development of an important hospital discharge project.
The main services we provide include caring for people in their own homes or community settings with the objective of keeping people out of hospitals unless medically necessary; health visiting and education for young families; community nursing and rehabilitation in their own homes for older people; walk-in health centres for urgent care; palliative and end of life care and specialist diabetes, dietetics and nutritional advice and support.
CityCare is far more than a simple provider of community healthcare services; we care for communities and employ local people who are embedded in those communities. We support and develop initiatives that aim to prevent ill health and injury and invest our social return in building wider community wellbeing.
The values that shape who we are and what we do are integrity, expertise, unity and enterprise.
CityCare is dedicated to providing care you can trust, behaving with compassion and using public money efficiently and effectively to deliver on our promises. You can have confidence in the care we provide and we will always live by the NHS principles. Our expertise is grounded in professionalism and we are industry-recognised leaders in clinical research, service redesign and improved patient care.
We are committed to building strong working partnerships across the community and working hand in hand with our patients and our colleagues to improve health and wellbeing and deliver excellent quality care.
The communities we serve lie at the heart of our organisation and we are focused on building sustainable services that generate healthier, happier futures for local people.
Our ambition is to work across organisational and social boundaries and lead meaningful change towards delivering a healthier future for all.
