We have set out four key strategic priorities for 2021/22 through which we will deliver our
objectives. The range of programmes and deliverables set out are mutually supportive, but for ease

  1. Addressing Inequalities and Promoting Inclusion
  2. Engaging citizens, staff and services through Co-design and Participation
  3. Redesigning Services – Improving Citizen Access/Promoting Wellbeing
  4. Innovating to Support Transformation

“The pandemic has shown the positive changes we can make to how and where we deliver healthcare, and we
must lock that in. By accelerating the transition to a new model of community NHS care and supporting the digitisation
of services, such as NHS Near Me we will ensure people get the right care, in the right place, at the right time”
