We have now published our interim Integrated Care Strategy for the next five years, developed by the One Gloucestershire Health & Wellbeing Partnership, with input from the public (Developing ICS priorities engagement in early 2022) and through discussion with wider stakeholders.

We are ambitious for our county and believe that by all working together, alongside local communities, we can make a real difference to the lives of citizens across our county.

Thank you to everyone who got involved and supported the development of the Strategy during 2022.

To help structure the priorities going forward, the strategy has three overarching pillars which include:

  • Making Gloucestershire a better place for the future – improving the health, wellbeing and care of our citizens – focus on early prevention and the wider impacts on health
  • Transforming what we do – locality integrated working that supports the needs of the local population, achieving equity – reducing unfair and avoidable differences in health, developing our workforce, improving quality and outcomes across the whole person journey and making the most of digital technology to support care
  • Improving health and care services today – improving access to care, reducing waiting times, supporting improvements in urgent and emergency care and improving mental health support.

The interim Integrated Care Strategy is available on the One Gloucestershire website.
