Suffolk & North East Essex Shadow Integrated Care System

As our population ages and people live longer than ever before, the number of people requiring care for life also changes. We must find a different way in which to plan, organise and provide services if we are to continue meeting the health and care needs of our local population, some of whom lives in the most deprived areas in England and suffers some of the worst health outcomes.

Our system across Suffolk and North East Essex sees the delivery of the Five Year Forward View and reaching financial balance as the very minimum of what we should be aiming to achieve. You can read more about our higher ambition which provides more details about how we are going to improve services for local people.
