Our strategy priorities have evolved through engagement with stakeholders and the communities we serve and are drawn from:
- key themes emerging from public and stakeholder engagement the three local authority health and wellbeing strategies;
- more than 27 partner strategies and health inequality data reflecting the needs identified in their joint strategic needs assessments;
- national guidance.
Bringing together our plan
Integrated care partnership
We have created ‘a plan on a page’ to help focus our thinking as a Partnership. It articulates our common endeavour to reduce inequalities together and key partner priorities, community priorities and key system priorities.
The ‘plan on a page’ also explains how we will work together to define our working practices as a partnership. This is described under four main areas.

Ways of working
Equal value partnership

Sovereignty of member organisations
Shared goals and learning

Regular review and refinement
Innovation, learning and quality improvement
