Carers' Strategy

There are about 56,000 family carers in East & North Hertfordshire, around 10% of our population, although this could be an underestimate. The value of the ‘work’ they do is about £1bn (more than the CCG’s budget). With our ageing demography and the very real financial challenges that the public sector in Hertfordshire faces it is critical that we focus on giving carers more recognition and effective and appropriate support.

Communications and engagement strategy

Effective communication and engagement is about getting the right messages to our key stakeholders and communities through the most appropriate channels at the most appropriate times. It is also a two way process. We need to inform, to share information and also to actively seek views from individuals and from patient groups, to garner insight, to listen and respond to incoming feedback.

Palliative and End of Life Care Strategy May 2017 - March 2020

East and North Herts Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are committed to improving the quality of care for those in need of palliative or end of life care and supporting their carers and families. The need for good quality, community based services is important in reducing the proportion of inappropriate hospital deaths, supporting people to achieve their preferred place of care and ultimately supporting people to achieve their preferred place of death.

This strategy outlines how the CCG proposes to improve palliative and end of life care over the next three years (May 2017-March 2020). It is intended that the strategy is considered as a framework, with detailed action plans subsequently being produced to deliver the overarching principles stated within this strategy.

Primary Care Strategy April 2016

To deliver integrated physical, mental health and social care in the community, which meets patients’ needs in the most appropriate setting.

Primary Care and its component parts are pivotal to sustaining the health economy and must be at the centre of the development of local services.

Together with our partners, our strategy will create a patient-centred, sustainable primary care system which addresses east and north Hertfordshire’s challenges.

We recognise that each of our six localities faces different challenges and will sometimes need to achieve the same goals in different ways. Irrespective of how healthcare is delivered, we will ensure that all patients living in east and north Hertfordshire receive the highest quality care which is easy to access and have the best possible outcomes.
