The Leeds Health and Care Plan sets out the areas to focus on to give us the best chance of reducing health inequalities and improving the quality and sustainability of our services. The Leeds Health and Care Plan will deliver significant parts (but not all) of the Leeds Health and Wellbeing Strategy 2016-2021.

The Leeds Health and Care Plan identifies three ‘gaps’ between the way we currently do things in the city and how we would like things to be. These are:
To help us do this, we have prioritised four areas of work for improving the health and care of people in Leeds. These four priorities and details of some of the proposals for changes that will be made can be seen in the plan on a page.
