York Integrated Community Team


The York Integrated Community Team (YICT) was founded in 2014 in partnership with local stakeholders. The YICT was initiated by Priory Medical Group who designed, developed and implemented the care model which was born from the views of the local community who said they wanted fast access to care and support and to only have to tell their story once. As such YICT seeks to provide a central point of access to health and social care services for patients registered with all practices in the Vale of York.

At the core of this vision the YICT aims to:

  • Reduce avoidable hospital admissions
  • Expedite safe discharge from hospital
  • Enable patients to remain independent longer
  • Keep the patient at the centre of their care at all times

The YICT helps keep people out of hospital and independent for longer by working directly with each individual to see if appropriate alternative solutions can be found. It offers continuous review and support which ensures that patients are optimised to stay at home. The project has seen some encouraging outcomes and good levels of patient satisfaction. The team has been highly praised for its innovative approach to ensuring local patients get the right care, in the right place, at the right time across the city and surrounding area.
