Two council led schemes have led to Bexley Council being shortlisted for a top health award.

The council has been shortlisted for two categories at next year’s LGC Awards.

The first shortlisted entry is for the borough’s Shared Lives scheme, which enables people to live in their community without having to live alone or in a care home.

The second is for a project dedicated to integrating adult social services with those provided by the Oxleas NHS Foundation Trust to provide a community services for older people.

Eileen Pallen, cabinet member for adults services said: “Both schemes are part of an ambitious plan to give our vulnerable residents the support they need in a more co-ordinated way and to ensure the best possible use of the resources available to the council and the NHS.”

The categories for which the council has been nominated are: Team of the Year and the Health and Social Care award.

All the shortlisted entries will be judged next month and the final awards announced in March 2016.
