Health and care organisations alongside local authorities across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay have been working together to create a shared five-year vision to meet the increasing health and care needs of the population - while ensuring services are sustainable and affordable.
A key theme throughout the STP is an increased focus on preventing ill health and promoting peoples’ independence through more joined-up services in, or closer to, peoples’ homes.
Seven priority areas have been identified as key programmes of work:
- Prevention and early intervention
- Integrated care
- Primary care
- Mental health, learning disabilities and autism
- Acute hospital and specialist services
- Children and young people
