Connecting 4 You is a new programme that builds on work that is already underway to improve local health and social care for the population of High Weald, Lewes and the Havens.
It involves looking at the health and care needs of everyone and sets out how we can improve and promote health and wellbeing, prevent avoidable ill health and better coordinate support services, including technology, equipment and accommodation. It aims to support people in times of need, help them stay out of hospital and, if they do have to go to hospital, get them home again as soon as possible.
The programme is led by High Weald Lewes Havens Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) and East Sussex County Council, alongside community and mental health Trusts, working in partnership with Healthwatch, patients, carers and the local community and voluntary sector.
Connecting 4 You supports wider plans to transform health and social care services across Sussex and will help us respond to the rising demand on services, whilst managing a restricted budget.
