Derbyshire Healthcare strategy 2016-21
Our strategy has been developed to meet the needs of our service receivers and to help staff understand their role in achieving the vision. It sets out the direction of travel for Derbyshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust for the next five years within the context of the wider health and care agenda, both nationally and locally.
The strategy aims to provide a clear and concise vision for the future in order to deliver a “…proactive and preventative approach to reduce the long term impact for people experiencing mental health problems and for their families, and to reduce costs for the NHS and emergency services” (Five year forward view for Mental Health - February 2016, NHS England).
This strategy also outlines our plans for what we need to do to ensure that our vision is realised for the benefit of our service receivers.
