Build partnerships with our stakeholders:
- develop more systematic ways of managing our relationships with the full range of our external public health, NHS and local government stakeholders, so that the Department can benefit from their knowledge, expertise and insight
- build stronger partnerships, based on mutual respect and understanding, openness in policy making, and collaborative delivery
- support leaders across the system to deliver change and improvement
- build departmental intelligence arm’s length bodies and insight on stakeholder perceptions.
