Cabinet received a report of the Director of Adults’ Health and Care regarding the NHS Long Term Delivery Plan for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.
The report was introduced and welcomed by Members.

With this in mind, the potential benefits of more NHS money being put into community services and further empowerment of Public Health was recognised.
The recommendations in the report were agreed. A decision record is attached to these minutes.
