Norfolk and Waveney Health and Care Partnership

Our plan for changing health and social care in Norfolk and Waveney

Our population is growing, people are living longer and the type of care that is available through advances in medicine and technology is changing. The demand for services across health and social care is therefore outstripping current provision. We want to improve how we care for people in Norfolk and Waveney. We also know that our current services are not sustainable if they continue as they are now.

As local health and social care organisations, we are working together to improve our services and to help you to take more control of your own health and wellbeing. We have developed a vision for health and social care in Norfolk and Waveney, which is based on what people have told us about how they want and how they want to be cared for.

Our vision is to provide high quality services that support more people to live independently at home, especially older people and those with long-term conditions, like heart disease, breathing problems, diabetes or dementia.

Our focus will be on helping you to keep as healthy and well as possible and for those at the end of their life that they have more choice and control about the services they want and need.  At the moment we spend most of our time and money treating illness, and not enough on prevention and keeping people healthy and well in the first place.
