Our priorities for 2018/19:

Quality improvement – Innovate and continually improve quality to deliver safe, affordable care with the best outcomes for the people we serve.

Workforce – Recruit and retain the right workforce to implement new, sustainable service models focused on integrating services and preventing ill health.

Local care – Establish and develop formal partnerships to enable joint working across health and social care.

IT – Invest in technology to enable new ways of working.

People strategy

We want to work with our patients, carers, communities, partners and staff to continue to offer more innovative, community-based services.

Our strategic direction sets out our high level direction. The strategy is our map for the route ahead to make sure we stay strong in terms of the clinical services we offer, the money we have to run those services and how we can best support you.

The goals in our strategy are supported by our solutions and operating models.

Quality strategy
