Clinically and financially sustainable services

Funding for the NHS is growing year on year but it is not able to keep pace with current demand for services. To add to this, local authorities have faced unprecedented levels of funding cuts in recent years.

We know that delivering care in acute hospitals is expensive. By integrating services and working together more closely we will be able to change the focus from hospital care to helping people to stay well. This will help us to provide you with a better health and care service within the budgets we have available.
