Interim Integrated Care Strategy

This interim Integrated Care Strategy has been developed by the One Gloucestershire Health & Wellbeing Partnership, based upon engagement with the public and in discussion with wider stakeholders across Gloucestershire. Building on conversations earlier this year (Developing our ICS priorities), and taking into account the great work already happening in our county, we have developed our Integrated Care Strategy for the next the 5 years.

We are ambitious for Gloucestershire 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.

This interim version of the strategy builds on the work already in place across Gloucestershire, whilst recognising that working in a formalised partnership allows for greater ambition.

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

  • Making Gloucestershire a better place for the future – focusing on the range of things that can impact of health and wellbeing including existing priorities like physical activity, healthy lifestyle, adverse childhood experiences and housing.
  • Transforming what we do – supporting prevention at a local level, joining up services close to home, reducing differences in people’s experience, access to care and health outcomes and a One Gloucestershire approach to developing our workforce – ensuring services can access the skills and people they need.
  • Health and care services today – improving access to care and reducing waiting times for appointments, treatment and operations, improvements in urgent and emergency care and supporting people’s mental health.

This document is designed to guide health and care organisations, staff, voluntary and community sector, and people and communities, to work together to achieve the common goals and vision. It sets out where, through working together, the county is making transformational changes in health, care and wellbeing; and details our ambitions for the future.

There are a range of other useful resources, including a short film that explains more about the One Gloucestershire Health and Wellbeing Partnership.
