Our strategy is based on evidence and best practice, as well as information and trends about the health needs of our local population. It is based on feedback from our patients, families, carers and staff. Our strategy is also linked to the plans and priorities of the local health and care system.  

Our strategy is not set in stone. We regularly review it to make sure our priorities stay current and relevant. We welcome feedback on our strategy and if you would like to share your views, please get in touch: communications@southernhealth.nhs.uk
