We will help define your system’s roadmap towards developing integrated care. As a long term partner, we will support across a range of capabilities to provide oversight and integration.

We will help you evolve your organisational constructs using our advanced skillsets to design and engineer new governance mechanisms that enable collaboration and joined-up working.

Alongside you, we can help achieve better outcomes through person-centred care models where risk and aspirations are shared – underpinned by a level of collaboration never achieved in the NHS before.

Our key strengths

  • We are of the NHS, for the NHS and share your same values and purpose
  • We have a longstanding relationship with systems in our patch
  • Jointly with our partners, we operate across a vast regional footprint and are able to offer resilience and share learning
  • During the pandemic, we demonstrated how we can respond flexibly to support systems, strengthening our PMO and advisory credentials
