Health and Care Portsmouth is an ambitious programme that is already changing the way we plan and provide health and social care in the city., It continues to build on the work that the NHS and the council have already done together as part of the Better Care project.

The programme aims to support people to live healthy, safe and independent lives by offering health and social care services that are joined up and provided in the right place, at the right time.

This means bringing together organisations throughout the city and enabling them to work together to transform health and care services. The five organisations across Portsmouth that are working together to deliver these services are:  NHS Portsmouth Clinical Commissioning Group, Portsmouth City Council, Solent NHS TrustPortsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust, and Portsmouth Primary Care Alliance.
