To work with the people of Surrey Heartlands to improve health and care

We will do this by:

    Start well, live well, age well’
  • Providing high quality and accessible care
    Best care, where and when you need it’
  • Creating partnerships that work better for the people we serve and those who provide care
    One team, one Surrey Heartlands’

Our strategy and plans

We have published a plan that summarises how we will work as an Integrated Care System to meet national and local priorities over the next six months, which would take us to the end of March.

You can find out more about our plans in this summary.

If you are interested in the detail, we have also published our full plan here.

As well as looking at our short-term priorities, we are also very focused on the improvements we want to deliver for our population in the longer term. For us, this includes:

  • a much greater focus on prevention to help people to stay well wherever possible
  • earlier intervention to make sure people get the care and support they need as early as possible
  • tackling health inequalities and the other areas that affect people’s health and wellbeing (known as the wider determinants of health) which includes things like housing, poverty and education, where it’s clear we must work together as a system to address these areas.

You can read about our ambitions to transform care across many different areas in our Five Year Plan. This summarises our own local plans and also reflects the wider Surrey Health and Wellbeing Strategy, as well as the NHS Long-Term Plan. It also explains how we will develop our system to deliver this plan, working much more collaboratively, both across Surrey and across our local Place Partnerships.
