NHS Norfolk and Waveney CCG pledge to the Equally Well Charter:

NHS Norfolk and Waveney CCG pledge to embrace the opportunities in joining the Equally Well collaborative. We believe the networking opportunities, examples of best practice and resources will support us to deliver the highest quality care for our local population.

Cath Byford, Chief Nurse, said: “At NHS Norfolk and Waveney CCG we are committed to working with our system partners to improve all aspects of health and wellbeing for our whole population. This includes a key focus on both the physical and mental health of those with mental health conditions. Those living with severe mental illness are at greater risk of poor physical health and preventable conditions which has an impact on life expectancy. As part of our ongoing mental health community transformation work, we are addressing these inequalities, providing better access and quality of care to those with severe mental illness. We are delighted to join the Equally Well UK collaborative and believe our membership will be invaluable.”
