Ours is a vibrant area, rich in cultural heritage, but there is poor health and inequality within our boundaries. Our aim is that everyone in our towns, villages and communities live longer, healthier lives.
Our strategic priorities
Following discussions with our partners, local people and patient forums, our Integrated Care System (ICS) has identified five priorities for health and social care across our area. These build on the factors we know support a healthy life including access to high quality health care, healthy behaviours, education, economic stability, employment and the built environment.
Focused on improving health outcomes for our whole population, these priorities are informed by, and take into account, the strategic objectives of our partner organisations. They aim to improve health and wellbeing and equality in our communities, make the best use of resources, and will shape the way we work as a system.
These priorities are supported by seven cross cutting enablers.
