What is Improving Lives?
Our Governing Body - led by GPs, and backed by all GP practices in East Staffordshire - took the decision early in 2014 to focus on helping people to be healthier for longer and helping those people with long term health conditions to take more control over their own care.
This work became what we now call ‘Improving Lives’ and is focused on supporting the residents across East Staffordshire with long term health conditions and frail, older people to:
- have more control over their own care
- have improved health outcomes
- improve their experience of living with their long term conditions.
Since May 2016, Virgin Care will have been managing the Improving Lives programme and are responsible for working with all of the partners locally to arrange for services within the Improving Lives Programme to be delivered.
Like us, Virgin Care are also committed to keeping patients, carers, the local community and healthcare colleagues informed and involved in this work as it progresses.
