New ten-year strategy being devised to put mental health at the forefront in Norfolk and Waveney

A major independent review of mental health services in Norfolk and Waveney - which began in May 2018 with a keynote workshop - is gathering pace.

Local NHS and social care partners are to develop a 10-year strategy that offers a clear vision for the future delivery of and model for mental health services, to include self-care and management and community-based support, as well as NHS and social care services.
The review has been commissioned by the Norfolk and Waveney Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP), which brings together local health and social care organisations.

Specialist diabetes nurses in GP surgeries

More GP practices across Norfolk and Waveney will have a diabetes specialist nurse or a GP with a special interest in diabetes thanks to funding provided by the Norfolk Diabetes Trust (NDT).

The joint initiative between the NDT and the five NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will see up to 50 clinical staff from practices undertake Warwick University’s Certificate in Diabetes Care.

New Joint Strategic Commissioning Committee meets in public

The first meeting of a new NHS Clinical Commissioning Group committee takes place next week.
