Our vision

Over the next decade, East Riding will become healthier, and that health will be fairer. East Riding Place will support delivery of the six big ambitions of our Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2022-2032:

  • become a health generating place
  • prevent now to avoid later harm
  • start good health and wellbeing young
  • make good health more equal across the area
  • build a collaborative health and care system

Where we are now

  • East Riding has an ageing and growing population, with increases in hospital care, social care and GP usage
  • East Riding’s red flags are alcohol consumption, multiple complex needs, drug related deaths and student health
  • one in nine people in East Riding have more than one long-term condition, and there is an elective backlog across primary and secondary care
  • under 18 admissions for mental health need with a high prevalence of common mental health illness, high suicide and high self harm rates
  • one in ten people smoke, two in three adults are overweight or obese and one in seven live with depression

Our priorities

Primary Care

Since the NHS was created in 1948, the population has grown and people are living longer. Many people are living with long term conditions such as diabetes and heart disease, or suffer with mental health issues and therefore may need to access local health services more often.

To meet these needs, GP practices work together and with community, mental health, social care, pharmacy, hospital and voluntary services in their local areas as part of Primary Care Networks (also known as PCNs).

Community Hospitals

Community Hospitals provide a range of community services for non-urgent and planned care.

If you have a health condition that requires ongoing treatment, your GP Practice may refer you to the care of the community services based at one of the planned care centres.

Choose well

We know that finding the right place to go when you become ill or are injured can be confusing. By selecting the right service for your illness or injury, you’re not only looking after your health but using your NHS services responsibly and in a way that helps hardworking staff to treat and care for patients appropriately.
