The Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership is a collaboration of health and care organisations who believe we are stronger when working together. We are striving to improve the health and wellbeing of our population as well as the quality and effectiveness of the services we provide.

The Partnership Long Term Plan sets out our Partnership’s ambitions and the difference we are seeking to make. Several versions of the Partnership Long Term Plan are available:

How we’ve already made a difference

The Partnership is dedicated to improving the overall health and wellbeing of people living in Humber, Coast and Vale.

There are a number of ways we are already doing this in our communities.

The First Contact Practitioner Scheme has physiotherapists based in GP surgeries as the first point of contact for people with musculoskeletal conditions, which covers muscles, joints and bones.

Across Humber, Coast and Vale we’ve developed Maternity Voices Partnerships so that women and their families can contribute to the development of local maternity care.

We are working with key partners to invest in, nurture, train and educate the current and new health and care workforce, which includes a relatively new role – Nursing Associates.

We’ve been working in partnership with the British Heart Foundation to offer blood pressure monitoring services in community pharmacies in Hull and East Riding.

We’re working with Humberside Fire & Rescue Service to raise awareness of cardiovascular disease. Their Safe and Well visits to vulnerable people now include cardiovascular disease prevention messages.

The Yorkshire and Humber Care Record is being rolled out across the Humber, Coast and Vale with the aim of improving care for people who use health and care services.

How we developed our Partnership Long Term Plan

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 informed the development of the Partnership Long Term Plan.

The Partnership’s Long Term Plan demonstrates 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 across Humber, Coast and Vale

The Partnership’s 28 organisations engage regularly with local residents or citizens, including those who use local health and care services in a variety of different ways.

Over 18 months to June 2019, 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 to emerge 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
