We want to create more efficient hospital-based services for people who need them, making the best use of the resources and workforce across our system to plan and deliver hospital care.

Our priorities and programmes

Taking into account planned improvements to ‘out of hospital’ care, we are working together to plan hospital-based services for those who still need treatment in a hospital setting. This includes providing more consistent access to urgent and emergency care.

Working together across this larger area creates opportunities to share resources in areas where we are currently stretched and to work together to tackle some of the challenges which we all share. This includes looking at new ways to train and recruit staff, to share resources and join up services across our region.
