Driving the shift upstream to more prevention and best value care in the right setting

This NHS Five Year Joint Forward Plan has been produced by NHS Partners across Herefordshire and Worcestershire.

It describes the shared priorities that partners will collectively work on over the next five years in response to the Integrated Care Strategy and Joint Local Health and Wellbeing Strategies.

The strategic intent is to collectively drive the shift upstream to more prevention and achieve best value care in the right setting. The focus now will be on delivering the plan, building on existing programmes of work. The plan will be formally refreshed annually.

The plan is made up of 4 documents:

  1. Main Document
  2. Appendix 1: Core areas of focus
  3. Appendix 2: Cross cutting themes
  4. Appendix 3: Integrated Care Board Duties

You can find more detail in Appendix 2: Cross cutting themes, about our commitment to early engagement and ongoing dialogue with people and communities. You can also find out more about our wider system approach to engagement in our ICS Engagement Strategy
