West Suffolk Alliance

In September 2016 health and care partners formed the West Suffolk Alliance. We have committed to work together to improve the health and care system in West Suffolk for all people whether they be a child, part of a family or a single adult. Our belief is that by working together in an Alliance we can have an impact on wellbeing, care and physical and mental health outcomes for people.

The alliance is made up of a wide range of partner organisations who are contributors to the wider determinants of health and who have signed up to the alliance strategy – All About People and Places.

Our Partners include:
  • NHS Suffolk and North East Essex ICB
  • Suffolk County Council
  • West Suffolk Foundation Trust
  • Norfolk and Suffolk Foundation Trust
  • West Suffolk Council
  • Babergh and Mid Suffolk Councils
  • Healthwatch Suffolk
  • St. Nicholas Hospice Care
  • Allied Health Professionals
  • Suffolk GP Federation

And many more partners who are involved in the health and wellbeing of local people.

Our Approach:

The strategy for our Alliance is to move from working as individual organisations towards being a fully integrated single system, with a shared vision, clear local priorities, able to both provide an improved service for people in West Suffolk and also to tackle the sustainability issues faced by the system together.

We have identified the following  four key priorities:

  • Strengthening the support for people to stay well and manage their wellbeing and health in their communities
    Building local integrated working, across all ages and across both physical and mental health.
  • Focusing with individuals on their needs and goals
    Looking at how we co-ordinate services to help people of all ages keep well, get well and stay well.
  • Changing both the way we work together and how services are configured…
    …so that health and care services are sustainable into the future and work well for people.
  • Making effective use of resources
    We will use the West Suffolk pound in the best way locally, reducing duplication and waste. All our organisations face challenging finances and if we work together we can use our resources better
