How to form effective provider collaboratives in a reformed NHS
Later this year, the Health and Care Bill will mark a decisive moment in the shift to joined up working in the NHS. As collaboration becomes the new mode of operation for health and care, this is having profound implications on the ways providers work.
Key questions include:
- What are the benefits of collaboratives and why are they important?
- What does the Health and Care Bill say about provider collaboration?
- How do I approach establishing a new provider collaborative?
- What examples are there of what has worked well and what hasn’t?
The webinar was full of practical advice for organisations navigating the reforms to the NHS and provided examples of what has been successful and the pitfalls to avoid. John Copps, Managing Consultant at Mutual Ventures, chaired the session and leaders from the sector joined us to discuss their own experience of partnership building.
