Our clinical priorities
The population in Bristol, in general, experiences worse health outcomes than that of England overall and we face a number of challenges caused by lifestyle factors.
Deprivation is higher than the national average, with 60,000 of Bristol residents living in areas that are among the most deprived ten per cent in England.
In 2014/15 we reviewed the information we had about the needs and outcomes for our population, which is detailed in our Five Year Plan:
Improving health outcomes
The plan addresses a number of clinical areas which are a priority for action if we are to improve Bristol residents health outcomes, reduce health inequalities, improve patient access, reduce waste and meet increasing patient demand.
We have a number of clinical steering groups leading on delivering innovative ways of working and delivering care to these priority areas to ensure that people experience high quality care, in the right place, first time.
Each of our clinical steering groups have produced a short video on how the system is changing and how this will improve services for our patients.
