HEA9 (PP) - Delivering accessible health services and clinical excellence

This policy is part of the Plymouth Plan which was approved by Plymouth City Council Full councillors on 27/02/2017.

The City will continue to develop as a location of national and international excellence in clinical and medical science, where everyone has access to the health care they need by:

  1. Focusing on integration and joining up services that benefit the people of Plymouth and those who use local services, and improving the sustainability of the health and care system.
  2. Ensuring that all communities in the city have access to high quality primary care services, with provision of technology-enabled care where appropriate.
  3. Supporting the development and emergence of Derriford Hospital as a regional centre of excellence for clinical specialisms that reflect its strengths, aspirations and the health needs of the people of Plymouth and wider population.
