The foreword of this Strategy sets out the key challenges and opportunities we will embrace as a health and social care system. The rest of the document describes what has helped to inform the development of this Strategy, the five key opportunities that can support system change and improvement and how we will go about implementing those changes.
There is recognition that there is more work to follow in making our broad commitments turn into detailed plans and measurements of success.
This Strategy has been developed with input from many people and grown from analysis of local needs, public and staff views and evidence about how best to secure better outcomes.
We’d like to thank everyone who has helped to shape and develop this work. We are committed to regularly reviewing the impact of this Strategy together and the Integrated Care Partnership Board will have an annual refresh of the Strategy which will seek a wide range of views across our communities.
