Together for Devon is a partnership of health and social care organisations working together with local communities across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay to improve people’s health, wellbeing and care.
This is part of a new arrangement – called an Integrated Care System – which is how we work from 2021.
The NHS Long Term Plan sets out how health and social care partners need to work together to plan services for the next five to ten years.
Together for Devon reflects the commitments made in the NHS Long Term Plan and forms the foundation stone of the service and system change in the future.
In Devon, we are already working together, and we have succeeded in breaking down some barrier. But this is just the beginning; we have not yet fundamentally changed the way we deliver services to properly meet people’s needs.
But this is exactly what we aim to deliver.
