Work on Joined Up Care Derbyshire (STP) is continuing as health and social care organisations work towards turning initial ideas into tangible plans.
NHS commissioners have agreed contracts with providers for services up to 2019, meeting NHS England requirements and deadlines. Funds initially intended to be invested in creating new ways of providing services, as suggested in the STP document, have now had to be committed elsewhere in the health and social care system. As a result, priorities and work will be moved on and updated to reflect the current circumstances.
All 11 partner organisations are looking at what can be achieved this year, and in 2018, and continuing to work closely together to achieve the agreed priorities and make sure patients get the best possible services, making the best use of all available resources.
Healthwatch Derbyshire and Healthwatch Derby, and the voluntary sector, are working closely with us to finalise plans for how, and when, we start holding events, so we can share the latest information and talk to as many people as possible across the county. These groups will help us hear from people from all communities and take on board a broad range of ideas and views, to help shape future services.
We will give you monthly updates about what is happening and how you can get involved.
