The Northamptonshire Health, Care and Wellbeing Plan – join the conversation and have your say

In January 2019 the NHS launched its Long Term Plan, which sets out its ambition to make sure everyone has the best start in life, receives world-class care for major health problems and gets the support they need to age well.

Locally, our county’s health and care organisations are working together through Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership (NHCP) to shape our local response to this, called the Northamptonshire Health, Care and Wellbeing Plan.

This plan represents the commitment between health and care providers in Northamptonshire and the members of the local Health and Wellbeing Board to work together on a plan for our county.

Together our vision for the future of Northamptonshire’s health and care is to have a positive lifetime of health, wellbeing and care for all those in our community.

October 2019 update: the public survey launched in August to help shape the development of the Northamptonshire Health, Care and Wellbeing Plan is now closed. We thank everyone who participated and shared their views.

The first draft of the Northamptonshire Health, Care and Wellbeing Plan was submitted to NHS England and NHS Improvement at the end of September. We will now continue to work to ensure our plan delivers the changes the people of Northamptonshire want to see, tackles the challenges facing our health and care services and builds on the progress we have already made together as NHCP.

The final plan will be published on these pages later this year – but our conversations with our local communities certainly won’t stop there! We will continue to provide opportunities to have your say and get involved in our work to improve local health and care services. If you want to be a part of this, sign up to get involved here.

Earlier this year NHCP and Healthwatch Northamptonshire hosted a public engagement event where we asked our community how we can support people to choose well, stay well and live well – and invited them to share their Big Ideas about the future of health and care in our county.
