Our plans and strategic initiatives

Published on 10 Jul, 2016

Our Five Year Integrated Operational Plan 2014-19 details the strategic planning  and work to deliver the integration of health and social care services in the Vale of York. This will help to bring services closer to home and help patients to remain independent for longer.

The strategic delivery of health and care in the Vale of York

We have eight main strategic initiatives that will transform services. These will deliver our plans for integrated working and a whole system change that will help to achieve the best and most future-proof model of care. Our strategic initiatives are:

  • integrated care;
  • self-care, prevention and well-being;
  • primary care reform;
  • urgent care reform;
  • planned care;
  • transforming mental health and learning disability services;
  • women’s and children’s services;
  • cancer, palliative and end of life care.
