Want to see first-hand how the vanguards are delivering new models of care?
12 February 2018
Health and care leaders will have the opportunity to see first-hand how new models of care are being delivered by the vanguards and others.
Led by those involved in leading and developing the vanguards, the visits will involve a tour of local services, allowing health leaders to see change in action for themselves. They will also include an overview of the local health and care economy and opportunities to meet local leaders to share experiences of leading transformation programmes.
Upcoming vanguard visits will take place:
Monday 26 February, with Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership. Join senior leaders from across partnership organisation to learn the unique transformation taking place in Greater Manchester as a result of devolution. This visit provides the opportunity to understand more about Greater Manchester's whole systems approach by showcasing how integrated and place-based partnership working is happening in practice. Gain practical insight into how local partners – particularly the NHS and local authorities – have overcome the barriers that have historically precluded partnership working.

The visits form part of a national programme to share the learning from new models of care across the health and care sector. The programme is being delivered by the NHS Confederation, NHS Clinical Commissioners, NHS Providers and the Local Government Association.
