The partner agencies in Sheffield including Sheffield City Council, NHS Sheffield, Sheffield Children’s Hospital Foundation Trust, STHFT(Sheffield Teaching Hospitals Foundation Trust), GPs and South Yorkshire Police have come together to ensure that Children’s Health and Wellbeing is prioritised in this time of change.
The only way that we will ensure that children’s health and wellbeing is prioritised, protected and improved is if we all work together, which is why we are supporting you to work in a more integrated way, and encouraging you to make more effective use of your time to help improve health outcomes across the city for our children, their families and the communities they live in.
‘Future Shape Children’s Health and Wellbeing’ is the initial blueprint for our city strategy. It is being driven by a programme board chaired by the Director for Children’s Services, Sonia Sharp, and the Chief Executive of the Sheffield Children’s Hospital Foundation Trust, Simon Morritt. All partners are represented at the board.
By working together, we will improve children’s health and wellbeing in this turbulent time of budget reductions and structural change. By creating new ways of working we will also identify opportunities to make financial savings.

We fully support you to take the time to help us work towards this, and encourage you to make decisions at a local level to deliver against these priorities. You have our trust and confidence to:
If as a city we are to achieve the best outcomes for our children and families, it will be due to our shared ownership of their issues and the willingness to work together in a flexible and responsive way.
