The NHS Long Term Plan was published in January 2019. It sets out the direction of travel for the NHS over the next ten years and identifies a series of ambitions and goals that will help to improve the health and wellbeing across the nation.

In Humber, Coast and Vale we are developing our own Partnership Long Term Plan, which will set out the aims and ambitions of our local Partnership and explain how we will implement the NHS Long Term Plan in our area.

The NHS Long Term Plan: Engagement by Healthwatch

NHS England commissioned Healthwatch to deliver a programme of engagement in each STP/ICS area to gather the public’s views and perspectives of the NHS Long Term Plan.

Healthwatch East Riding of Yorkshire was appointed to coordinate this engagement activity in the Humber, Coast and Vale area. This activity took place between March 2019 and May 2019.

The findings of this engagement activity will inform the development of the Partnership’s Long Term Plan.

The Partnership will be expected to demonstrate how it has taken into account the views shared with it by the local community through this engagement exercise.

In this role, local Healthwatch organisations:

  • Conducted a survey (a minimum of 250 responses collected via social media, at existing engagement events, paper-based surveys etc)
  • Organised a minimum of two focus groups per area
  • Produced a final report for the Partnership

Our Engagement So Far

There are 28 partner organisations within the Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership. Each of those organisations engage regularly with local residents or citizens, including those who use local health and care services in a variety of different ways.

Over the past 18 months, as a collective, we have engaged with tens of thousands of people across Humber, Coast and Vale.

This report highlights some of the key themes emerging from that engagement and some of the things that people in the Humber, Coast and Vale area have told us about their health and wellbeing.

How You Helped Us To Develop Our Partnership Long Term Plan

To support and inform the development of the Partnership Long Term Plan, the Partnership engaged with a broad range of stakeholders to ensure the plan had sufficient buy-in with the partners who will be required to deliver the actions identified within it.

The Partnership held four Stakeholder Engagement Events across the Humber, Coast and Vale area over the summer months.

The engagement events were open to anyone with an interest in the future of health and care in the Humber, Coast and Vale area.

In particular, events were attended by representatives of the following groups:

  • Voluntary and community sector organisations
  • Governors and members of local NHS organisations
  • Staff, including staff-side representatives
  • Patient Participation Group (PPG) members
  • Local Councillors and other community leaders

You can learn more about the events by watching the videos below. You can also read our two-page Partnership Long Term Plan summary to learn more about our plans for the future of Health and Care in Humber, Coast and Vale.

The events are free to attend but it is essential to register your attendance as places are limited.
