As an ICS, the Norfolk and Waveney Health and Care Partnership has three goals:
- To make sure that how healthy you are doesn’t depend on where you live. There are parts of Norfolk and Waveney where people’s health and wellbeing is significantly poorer, and where people on average die younger, than other areas. This is something we must change.
- To make sure that you only have to tell you story once. Too often people have to explain to different health and care professionals what has happened in their lives, why they need help, the health conditions they have and which medication they are on. Services have to work better together.
- To make Norfolk and Waveney the best place for health and care professionals to work. Having the best staff, and supporting them to work well together, will improve the working lives of our staff, and mean people get high quality, personalised and compassionate care.
Our Five Big Changes
1. Our GPs, nurses, social workers, mental health workers and other professionals will work together in teams, in the community, to provide people with more coordinated care.
2. Our hospitals will work more closely together so people get treated quicker in an emergency and don’t have to wait as long for surgery and other planned care.
3. We will work together to recruit more staff and we’ll invest more in the wellbeing and professional development of our workforce.
4. We will help people to make healthier choices to prevent them from getting ill and we will treat and management illnesses early on.
5. New technology will modernise our health and care services, making it quicker and easier for people to get the care they need.
”We have always had to integrate with lots of other different services and have a multidisciplinary approach with every patient we deal with. COVID has shone a big light on that we all have to work together and put patient’s best interests at heart.”
