The NHS Five Year Forward View team set out a challenging vision for the NHS. Its aim is to bring local health and care partners together to set out clear plans to pursue the Forward View’s ‘triple aim’ to improve:
The NHS England 2016/17 planning guidance outlines a new approach to help ensure that health and care service are planned by place rather than around individual organisations. There are 44 Sustainability and Transformation Plans (STPs) being developed in local geographical areas or ‘footprints’ across the country that are being submitted to NHS England for approval.
The North Central London Mental Health Programme is one of the pieces of work being developed jointly across Barnet, Camden, Enfield, Haringey and Islington (North Central London) to improve the health and wellbeing of our residents, and the care that they receive. In particular, the Mental Health Programme aims to develop a model of care and support that enables our population to live well in the least restrictive setting; by breaking down the barriers between mental and physical health, delivering consistent and better outcomes across NCL that matter to service users and carers, and reducing inappropriate use of acute inpatient beds. This is an all age approach, with a focus on early intervention.
