To deliver Joined Up Care Derbyshire, we all need to work together and focus on the priorities.
There are five main priorities set out to make sure we help give people in Derbyshire a great start in life and support them to be healthy, live well and stay well.
The five priorities highlighted so far are:
- To do more to prevent ill health and help people take good care of themselves.
- To tailor services so they look after and focus on people in their communities, so people get better, more targeted care and support.
- To make it easy for people to access the right care, whenever it is needed, so everyone gets better quality, quicker support across the system. This would help keep Accident & Emergency, Minor Injury Units and Urgent Care Centres free for patients who really need them.
- To get health and social care working seamlessly together so people get consistently high quality, efficient, coordinated services, without gaps or duplication.
- To make organisations as efficient as possible so money is pumped into services and care, with running costs kept low.
To deliver Joined Up Care Derbyshire, we all need to work together and focus on the priorities set out in each area of work, often referred to as a workstream.
Senior leaders from all organisations are leading an area of work. If you would like to find out more about the work streams and have an idea about getting involved, please contact the leaders directly, or email Jenny Goodwin, Head of Communications and Engagement for Joined Up Care Derbyshire.
