On 21 and 22 October, EUREGHA participated in a study trip to Hälsostaden (“The City of Health”-project) in Ängelholm, organised by Region Skåne. Hälsostaden is a three-year project which started in 2013 bringing together Ängelholm municipality, primary care and hospital-based specialist care in an innovative model for integrated care. The main goals of the project are to improve accessibility, to offer care and nursing at the right level and to improve patient flow between municipality, primary care and hospital.
The second day consisted of a visit to Hälsostaden, which is based at the hospital of Ängelholm. During that very day, Hälsostaden celebrated their two-year anniversary with a fair, offering networking opportunities with the staff. This was followed by presentations of the mobile emergency teams, dementia care, ICT solutions and a visit to the key departments, including a meeting with some of the healthcare workers.
