The new care models programme is a clear vision at the heart of the NHS for the future of health and social care in England. The aim is to transform the way care is delivered across the country involving patients, local people, nurses, doctors and others.
The work is being spearheaded by 29 health and social care sites, known as vanguards, who have put forward innovative plans for their local area. The sites are being supported to help them achieve their aims as quickly as possible and to help ensure that their work is replicated nationally. This is not only about the vanguards, we all need to work differently, to build on the innovation within health and social care in recent years.
The NHS Directory is a resource that showcases local teams who are supporting new care models, leadership development, improvement and innovation and outlines North West Employers’ involvement.
