The Department of Health has approved funding for four local authority social care projects.
Schemes in Leeds, Hull, Sandwell and Hammersmith will all receive PFI credits. They are among 17 that were reviewed at the end of last year.
In Hammersmith, the local authority proposes to develop a Collaborative Care Centre in the White City area. The Hull project consists of three Extra Care sites totalling about 200 beds.
Leeds will get an Adult Social Care Community WellBeing Centre, part of a larger development at Holt Park that includes a new school. In Sandwell, the approved project is a sports centre where priority will be given to disabled adults receiving social care services.
Care services minister Paul Burstow said: “I’m pleased to be able to confirm funding for these four projects, which all promise a fantastic boost to their local communities.
“These ambitious schemes include plans to build bridges between health and social care. This is key to developing services that fit around peoples lives and deliver personalised care and support.”
