What is Buurtzorg?

Buurtzorg is a Dutch model of community nursing. Care is provided by small, self-managing

teams in a given neighbourhood. The care is person-centred, with needs assessed holistically rather than being divided into separate health and social care needs. Building up informal support networks around the individual is key, involving family, friends and the local community.

Excited by this model, in Aberdeen we plan to adapt the principles so that both nurses and support workers are working together in an integrated team.

This model will be piloted by the Aberdeen City Health & Social Care Partnership in two areas of Aberdeen - Cove and Peterculter – starting towards the end of 2017.

This is a fantastic opportunity for you to help shape community care and to be part of testing a brand new way of working in Aberdeen, where nurses and support workers combine their skills to support and enable individuals within their own community.
