Walsall Together is an integrated care partnership (ICP) between the organisations that plan and deliver health, mental health, social care, housing and voluntary services locally. As a partnership their aim is to work more closely to together, to transform the way health and social care services are delivered, in order to reduce health inequalities and improve health and well-being outcomes for the people of Walsall.
The Walsall Together partnership is part of a wider system of health and social care called The Black Country and West Birmingham Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP). The STP, which is currently working towards becoming an Integrated Care System (ICS) by April 2021, is responsible for five places covering large population sizes.
Within each of these areas there are partnerships like Walsall Together who are responsible for designing and delivering health and social care services that meet the needs of its population.
By joining together and working in new ways our aim is to improve the health and wellbeing outcomes of the population, increase the quality of care provided and provide services which are sustainable in the future.
We will be working closely with local voluntary organisations, charities, community groups, patients and local residents in the planning and delivery of services.
By doing this we’ll be able to understand the local population better, including the wider determents of health such as poor housing, education and employment, help people understand and manage their own health and well-being needs and provide the right care in the right place at the right time.
