We’ve been holding a series of public events for people to discuss our plans, ask questions, give feedback and focus on topics to help drive the work forward.
The first took place at the Albert Hall in Nottingham on Wednesday 1 November 2017, the second was at the Radcliffe Grange Hall on Thursday 1 February 2018, the third was at Beeston Youth and Community Centre on Thursday 10 May 2018, and our final event took place on Thursday 13 September 2018 at John Godber Centre in Hucknall.
The key documents from the previous meetings are:
Press release: Have your say on the future of health and social care
People are being given the chance to learn more about plans to join up health and social care in Greater Nottingham.
A public briefing and feedback event is being held by the Greater Nottingham Transformation Partnership – which is made up of local NHS organisations and other health providers, Nottingham City Council and Nottinghamshire County Council.
As well as asking questions and giving feedback, the event on Wednesday 1 November will allow the public to get involved to help to shape the work.
Press release: External Support for an Accountable Care System
The NHS, local councils and healthcare providers are working closer together to improve health and wellbeing across Nottingham and South Nottinghamshire. The aim is to give patients and citizens a more joined-up experience of healthcare, hospital care, mental health care and social care services that better meet their needs locally.
NHS England announced in June that the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) would become an accelerated accountable care system with an early focus on Greater Nottingham.
The work underway in Nottinghamshire across health and social care is ground-breaking in this country and our teams will benefit from advice, guidance and training from an external transformation expert.
Press release: Pioneering plan to join up health and social care
Plans have been announced to explore new ways to better join up health and social care services. NHS, local authorities and healthcare providers in Greater Nottingham are to benefit from new national investment to allow them to begin working towards the creation of a shared ‘accountable care system’.
Working closely with patients and citizens, the aim will be to find new ways of breaking down barriers between organisations in order to provide a more joined-up approach to delivering healthcare, hospital care, mental health care and social care services to better meet the needs of people locally.
