The members of the Joined Up Care Derbyshire Board (Derby and Derbyshire’s Sustainability and Transformation Partnership STP), would like to invite you to an event to discuss  the ‘draft’ refreshed STP five-year strategic plan.

Date: 13th Sept 2019

Time: 9.15 – 12 noon (starts 9.00am with refreshments)

Venue:   The Whitworth Centre, Ballroom, Station Road, Darley Dale, Matlock DE4 2EQ. Onsight free parking is available. Please use the car park to the side of the building.

Booking is essential.

Our refreshed STP Plan will demonstrate Derbyshire’s commitment to the ambitions set out in the national NHS Long Term Plan and outlines how we intend to implement these locally. Its focus will be on:

  • Ensuring the citizens of Derbyshire ‘have the best start in life, stay well, age well and die well’.
  • Addressing inequalities and population health management.
  • Working together to make improvement in the wider determinants of health such as housing, education and air pollution management leading to improved outcomes for people in Derbyshire.
  • Addressing inequalities and population health management.
  • Working with people not just patients, i.e. a focus on wellbeing not just ill health.

During the event you will have the opportunity to hear about the improvement you can expect to see, as we start to implement our plan, tackling the five major service changes outlined in the NHS Long Term Plan, which are:

  • boosting out-of-hospital care
  • redesigning and reducing pressure on hospital services
  • giving people more control over their own health and more personalised care when they need it
  • mainstreaming digitally enabled primary and outpatient care
  • focusing on population health and local partnerships with local authority-funded services.

In addition to finding out about the ambitions of the NHS Long Term plan there will be the opportunity to hear about and discuss why we need to change the way we deliver services, our model of care, how we will consider the wider determinants of health, our move to an Integrated Care System (ICS), the implementation of digital advances, our plans to develop the workforce, the development of Place Alliances and Primary Care Networks, and the financial challenge.

This event builds on extensive engagement that has already taken place to inform the draft submissions to the plan, throughout the work-streams, the Place Alliances, through the JUCD Citizens Panel (August and September), out and about in the local community via our interactive workshop, through our work with Creative Carers to establish ‘what carers want’, and through the work of Healthwatch Derby and Derbyshire. It is part of an ongoing commitment to involving and communicating with the public, communities, and staff over the next 5 years, to demonstrate progress.

Draft plans will be submitted to NHS England and NHS Improvement on the 27th September 2019, and full and finalised plans need to be agreed by the 15th November 2019, so this is your opportunity to be part of an open, and transparent dialogue about the plans content and implementation, and raise any areas of concern, or ideas for improvement, to ensure we have captured what matters most to you.

Booking is essential as we have limited places.

If you would like to book to attend this event, please contact Karen Ritchie on . Please state if you have any access requirements. I will confirm all places for the event by email.
