Shape the future

Health and care organisations in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly have published their proposals for service transformation over the next five years.

Preventing ill health and more care at home are at the heart of health and social care plans for Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

The local Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) is a response to the NHS England Five Year Forward View and Devolution Deal for Cornwall to achieve three aims:

  • Improve the health and wellbeing of the local population.
  • Improve the quality of local health and care services.
  • Deliver financial stability in the local health and care system.

The Transformation Board which is made up of all the leaders from the major public sector health and care organisations is engaging with clinicians, practitioners, stakeholders and most importantly citizens to shape future services.

In the latest plans (Draft Outline Business Case), health and care leaders set out the priorities, principles and actions for the next five years and seek the views of the local population on the work so far.

The focus within the latest STP document is on preventing ill health and providing as much care as possible at home or in the community. At the moment care is too reactive, not achieving best outcomes and based on an expensive hospital based model that is now outdated.

From Monday, 28 November 2016 until Friday, 27 January 2017, citizens had a chance to have their say on the local plans through a survey or series of community events. Following this period of engagement, detailed plans will be developed with consultation on any major service changes taking place from the summer 2017.
