Work of the ICS
We are working more closely together to help everyone in the region have a great start in life, with support to stay healthy and live longer.
In 2016 we published our plan, known as the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Sustainability and Transformation Plan. In it, we set out a vision. It describes how we will make improvements to health and care services, like making it easier to see a GP, speeding up access to appointments which will allow us to receive our diagnosis at the earliest possible time, and offering help faster to people with mental ill health problems.
It also acknowledges the challenges we face, such as growing demand for services, tough financial pressures and staff challenges.
We have a number of priority areas (called “workstreams”) that we are working on. All have input from all organisations, senior clinicians, members of staff and, as we start to develop ideas and plans, the public.
