Introducing our Five Year Plan

Our five year strategy sets out a new shared vision for everyone working in health and care.

It's an ambitious plan and one that we're very excited about.

We truly believe it will enable people to live longer, healthier and happier lives across our City and County. The plan enables us to tackle the growing gaps in healthy life expectancy across our area.

Our staff are our greatest asset. That's 35,000 people locally including NHS workers, social care colleagues plus everyone in the public, private and voluntary sectors.

We need to be collaborative, creative and courageous. By breaking down organisational barriers we will improve the health of our local population, whilst spending public money wisely.

Leading celebrities from stage and sport have given their backing to our five-year plan to improve the health and wellbeing of local people

Actor Vicky McClure, film producer and Nottingham Forest director Jonny Owen, and Olympics medal winning swimmer Rebecca Adlington all feature in a video designed to raise awareness of the new plan.

Dr Andy Haynes, Executive Lead for the ICS said: Everyone in our city and county deserves to live well into their old age. Our five year plan sets out a new shared vision for health and care services in our city and county. We truly believe it will enable people to live longer, healthier and happier lives."

"Through better collaboration between the NHS, local authorities, volunteer groups and other organisations, we will improve the health of our local population, whilst spending public money wisely."

We are asking everyone to support this campaign by making a pledge about what they will do differently to make a difference. This could be as simple as a personal health goal like going for a daily walk, or a professional goal like pledging to work more closely with the voluntary sector.
