Working in partnership with local people
“By working in partnership with local people, we are committed to making the changes which will improve peoples’ health and wellbeing by ensuring they receive the right care, in the right place at the right time. This will include ensuring there is parity between physical and mental health services. We know there will be anxiety about what this will mean for individual communities, but as health and social care leaders we are committed to being open in our approach, setting aside organisational boundaries and acting with the best interests of patients in mind.”
