In recent years, Portsmouth and south east Hampshire has emerged and developed as a local system of health and care due to the ways in which services are provided by our organisations and the ways in which our local population uses them.
To support the work we are doing for the area, we have produced a blueprint that sets out what we're going to do and why we're going to do it. Ultimately, our key principle is that together we are stronger - our whole local system is greater than the sum of its parts. Part of that means that you - the public, patients, users and citizens - know our plans and hold us to account.
Set out below is our vision and the accompanying objectives. If we can deliver on the objectives that we have identified, we should have a health and care system which is increasingly robust and sustainable, personalised to you, providing more resilient urgent care and better supporting our population to stay well.
"The Blueprint articulates the case for change and describes the need for us to commission, plan and deliver many of our services differently to ensure the offer to our population is safe, high quality and financially sustainable over the next five years.
The Blueprint encourages us to be courageous and to lead any transformation as a single leadership team putting people and services before our own organisations. How we do this is really important, we want to involve and listen to those who use our services and we want those who work with us in all areas of our organisations to lead this change.
We have committed to erasing the boundaries between our organisations where it makes sense, adds value and enhances the outcomes for our population. This Blueprint is not a complete plan for our future as that will develop and become clearer as we address and deliver against our priorities. It does however ask us to behave and act differently so we can collectively deliver our ambitions."
