Our plans to improve health and services for people living in Gateshead

By Mark Dornan, chair

An increasing ageing population, pockets of poor health, and a reduced budget means that in the coming year we will face many challenges. However, by working with our key partners, our priorities will be:

  • To continue to work with others to prevent ill health
  • To deliver more care within the community
  • To be more proactive when dealing with people with long term conditions
  • To co-ordinate individual care through care planning and increasing out-of-hospital provision
  • To streamline care delivered between organisations
  • To review and improve primary care, community and mental health services
