One Vision

Added on 17/10/2017, in News - News

One Vision is the transformation plan for children and young people and links into the Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Health and Care Partnership vision. It’s vitally important that children and young people receive first class care and access from high quality services, when they need them. This is why we’re making sure the services they rely on are being joined up at the same time we’re integrating adult health and care services. The needs of children and young people are different to adults, which is why they have their own plan. This ensures their voices are heard when we talk about Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly Health and Care Partnership – they’re very much part of our future.
