“Our Health, Our Care, Our Future” NHS Lothian Draft Strategic Plan 2014-2024
Why do we need a strategic plan? • To provide the best care consistently • To maintain and raise quality standards • To meet the needs of a changing population • To change our relationship with patients and their carers – putting patients at the centre • To work more closely with other public services • To work more efficiently.
What are the challenges we face? Demography, inequalities and ill health Multiple and chronic illnesses (Multimorbidity) Health service demand and rising expectations Tighter finances
What will success look like? Improving the quality of care through: • increasing the role of primary and community care • integrating health and social care • safer healthcare environments • improving unscheduled and emergency care • improving our approach to multiple and chronic illnesses • involving people in their care and in service improvements.
What will success look like? Improving health of the population by focusing on: • early years • underlying causes of health inequalities • preventative measures on alcohol, tobacco, dental health, physical activity • early detection of cancer.
What will success look like? Bettervalue and financial sustainability, by: • Adapting the workforce • Innovating to raise quality and reduce costs • Raising efficiency and productivity • Designing care pathways delivering what matters to patients. • Identifying areas for disinvestment – where there is no contribution to the health of the population.
