The NHS and social care system is one of this country’s greatest achievements and one on which we all rely at some point in our lives.
However, our health and social care services face some big challenges. People are living longer, our population is getting older and the type of care that people need is changing. Our health and social care services therefore need to change too.
Working together to tackle these challenges
In response, we are working with local health and social care organisations to find a better way forward.
We are developing an important programme to transform health and social care over the next five years called the Norfolk and Waveney Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).
Visit Healthwatch Norfolk to find out more about the work we are doing together and to have your say on the future of health and social care in Norfolk and Waveney.
