The local NHS and Cheshire West and Chester Council is committed to developing a joined-up health and care system that is safe, affordable and, most importantly, meets the needs of the people of Cheshire West.
We know local people are passionate about NHS and care services – we are too. At a time when demand is rising faster than budgets, we need to do more to protect and improve local services. Continuing with more of the same is not an option – a different approach is required.
In Cheshire West we have a strong track record of working together but we know we can do even better to deliver long-term changes that are backed by investment. Our plans to further join up care in Cheshire West have been carefully thought through, led by clinicians and frontline staff and shaped by the experiences of local people.
Joining up health and care will help the people of Cheshire West live longer, healthier lives at home, or in a homely setting. Patients will be at the centre of all decisions and will receive higher standards of quality and safety.
