The north, east and west (NEW) Devon Success Regime is one of three such programmes in the country – the others are Essex, and Cumbria – and is part of the NHS Five Year Forward View
, the blueprint for the NHS which sets out the challenges facing health and care nationally and how radical change is needed to sustain services and improve care for patients.
The Success Regime focuses on certain areas in the country where there are deep-rooted, systemic pressures, such as financial deficits or issues of service quality.
It provides increased support and direction to secure improvement in:
Short–term improvement against performance and financial measures;
Medium and long-term transformation, including the introduction of new models of care;
Developing leadership across the health system, ensuring collaborative working.
More detail on how the Success Regime operates can be found here
As for all parts of the NHS, the priority is to go faster and further with transformation. Every local health and care system must have a Sustainability and Transformation Plan, and the NEW Devon Success Regime will facilitate this.
For further information on plans for the NHS and its transformation you can see the latest NHS planning guidance for 2016/17
