Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board considered a report on the Long Term Plan and vision for prevention.

 

NHS England had published its Long Term Plan on 7 January 2019, which was a 10 year plan to ‘make the NHS fit for the future, and to get the most value for patients out of every pound of taxpayers’ investment’.   In November 2018 the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care had published ‘Prevention is better than cure: Our vision to help you live well for longer.” This document had informed the Long Term Plan.

 

Elements of the Long Term Plan and the vision within ‘Prevention is better than cure’ were strongly linked to the priorities of the Health and Wellbeing Strategy.  If these were embedded in the health and care system and the wider community there would have significant beneficial impacts to the health and wellbeing of the Cheshire East population.

 

RESOLVED:  That the Board

 

1        note the contents of the Long Tern Plan, the vision for prevention and the Government’s desire to place prevention at the heart of our nation’s health;  and

 

2        agree that Cheshire East Place based health and care systems embed the aspirations of the vision and put prevention at the heart of local transformation.
