Suffolk & North East Essex Integrated Care System

Long Term Ambitions – Overview

The NHS Long Term Plan sets out the national 10 year strategy to make the NHS fit for the future. It aims to improve care for patients by:

  • Making sure everyone gets the best start in life
  • Delivering world-class care for major health problems
  • Supporting people to age well

As an Integrated Care System, we will collaborate across all sectors to deliver the objectives of the NHS Long Term Plan and more. We will listen to what people say, and co-produce solutions that provide the right care and support for people and communities. We will use our resources effectively, maximising the assets in our people and communities. And together we will think imaginatively, to continually learn and develop.

These aims will be achieved through a number of ways.

  • Boosting ‘out-of-hospital’ care and ending the divide between primary and community health
  • Reducing pressure on emergency hospital services
  • Ensuring people have more personalised care and more control over their health
  • Mainstreaming digitally-enabled primary and outpatient care
  • Focusing on population health and moving to Integrated Care Systems everywhere
  • By tackling the most significant causes of ill health, including helping people stop smoking, overcoming drinking problems and avoiding diabetes - with a focus on inequalities between communities
  • Ensuring a strong start in life for children and young people
  • Providing care for major health conditions
  • Increasing the NHS workforce through training and recruitment
  • Making the NHS a better place to work
  • Making better use of data and digital technology
  • Improving access to services and health information for patients
  • Better access to digital tools and patient records for staff, and
  • Improving planning and service delivery with better use of patient and population data
  • Reducing duplication in how services are delivered
  • Reducing administrative costs and more efficient procurement
