Welcome to Healthy Lives Healthy Futures
Healthy Lives, Healthy Futures is about transforming health and care services for the future, led by NHS North East Lincolnshire and NHS North Lincolnshire Clinical Commissioning Groups in partnership with other local health and care organisations.
Our aim over the next 5 – 10 years is to look at how we can develop an improved local health and care system that will deliver safe, high quality and affordable services for years to come.
Health and social care are facing big challenges. Services are under increased pressure because more people than ever need care for often complex conditions, which is becoming more expensive. Funding is not keeping pace with demand and resources need to be stretched further. It’s important our health and social care system can live within its means while protecting, prioritising and safeguarding people who have the most complex care needs in our community.
To make sure we can keep doing this, we will sometimes need to do things in a different way to what people are used to.
We need to look at all aspects of emergency care, urgent care and planned or routine care services which will include those delivered from hospital, health centres and in the community. We need to take decisions about what services should look like in future including their size, location and ability to deliver high-quality care safely, and we want to do this with the people who live in Northern Lincolnshire and use these services.
We are in the process of planning the next stage of the Healthy Lives Healthy Futures programme. Details will be available soon.
