The NHS and local councils across the country have been working together as ‘systems’ over the last few years to improve health and care for their populations.
The Sussex Health and Care Partnership is made up of 16 partners all working together to meet the changing needs of all the people who live in our area. We want to offer better health, better care and to ensure we make the most efficient use of our resources.
Our partners include local authorities, health and care providers and clinical commissioning groups. It is the first time we have all worked together in this way and gives us an opportunity to bring about significant improvements in health and care over the next five years, over and above the improvements that may already taking place in your local area.
The Partnership is not a statutory body, organisation, or a single separate plan. It is a way of making sure that the partners’ plans are joined up and working together.
