The latest draft of plans to reshape health and care services in Devon, Plymouth and Torbay by 2021 has been released.
The Wider Devon Sustainability and Transformation Plan sets out ambitious plans to improve health and care services for people across Devon in a way that is clinically and financially sustainable
Health and care organisations as well as Local Authorities across Devon have been working together to create the shared five-year vision to meet the increasing health and care needs of the population - while ensuring services are sustainable and affordable.
The STP provides the framework within which detailed proposals for how services across Devon will develop - between now and 2020/21.
A key theme throughout the STP an increased focus on preventing ill health and promoting people’s independence through the provision of more joined up services in or closer to peoples’ homes.
Seven priority areas have been identified as key programmes of work:
- Ill health prevention and early intervention
- Integrated care model
- Primary care
- Mental health and learning disabilities
- Acute hospital and specialist services
- Increasing service productivity.
- Children and young people
