East Sussex Better Together (ESBT) is our programme to transform local health and social care and break down barriers to deliver the right services, in the right place, at the right time.
To build on our successes and strengthen our work across the county, from June 2019, we are bringing ESBT together with C4Y (Connecting 4 You - the integration programme for the High Weald Lewes Havens area), to establish a single health and care programme across the whole of East Sussex. This will be led by an executive group made up of senior leaders from acute and community care, primary care, mental health services, social care and commissioning.
The new executive group will be held to account by the East Sussex Health and Wellbeing Board (HWB). The HWB includes representatives from Healthwatch East Sussex, the voluntary sector, and the District and Borough Councils.
By working in such a joined-up way, we believe we’re able to serve the whole of East Sussex even more effectively.
