Our Partnership is made up of organisations working closely together to plan services and address the challenges facing health and care services across the area.
In this section you will find links to useful information and publications about our partnership.
We are committed to meaningful conversations with people, on the right issues at the right time. We believe this is an important part of the way we work.
Engagement gives people an opportunity to have their say on services. By gathering people's views, it helps us understand what matters to people.

If you do not receive any services, and are concerned about your physical or mental health or that of someone you care for, your GP should be the first person you contact.
If you are unsure what to do, you can call 111, a 24-hour helpline run by trained professionals.
