New models of care in practice
NHS Providers is working with NHS Clinical Commissioners, NHS Confederation and the Local Government Association to help share learning from the vanguard programme.
As part of that work, we are sharing nine case studies of new models of care in practice.
The case studies can be downloaded individually below, or click 'download' at the bottom of the page to download all of the case studies in one document.
Better Care Together (Morecambe Bay)
Better Care Together (Morecambe Bay) has put listening to its local community and supporting their wellbeing at the heart of its vanguard work. Self-care and prevention are vital to helping people to avoid hospital admissions and live longer, happier lives.
Connecting Care - Wakefield District
Connecting Care - Wakefield District vanguard has been focusing on improving the health and wellbeing of local care home residents.
East Midlands Radiology Consortium
The East Midlands Radiology Consortium (EMRAD) network and its new way of working can save money as well as improve the clinical care offered within urgent services such as major trauma and stroke and in regional acute surgical centres. It also improves the support available to smaller hospitals and outpatient facilities around the region.
Wellbeing Erewash is a multispecialty community provider vanguard which brings together local health and social care organisations to work as one team. It has shaped a new group of services which are closer to home with patients being supported by a group of professionals working together to prevent ill health, rather than being seen by lots of different professionals individually.
Mid Nottinghamshire Better Together
Mid Nottinghamshire Better Together vanguard is working towards the local health and care system being more joined up, and together partners have been reducing unnecessary hospital admissions for the area’s highest risk patients.
North East Hampshire and Farnham vanguard
North East Hampshire and Farnham vanguard is focussing on bringing local primary, community, acute, mental health and social care services together to work as one team to keep the local population healthier.
Royal Free London
Royal Free London is one of four foundation trusts developing a ‘group model’ – a new way of working across organisational boundaries to improve the quality of patient care, while also reducing the cost to the healthcare economy as a whole.
Tower Hamlets Together
Among many other initiatives, the Tower Hamlets Together vanguard has established a new community kidney service which uses technology to help identify and treat patients either at risk of kidney disease or already living with the condition.
Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Clinical Commissioning Group
A vanguard in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough has focused on helping people who are experiencing mental health crisis and demonstrating how, with the right support, they can get the help they need at home or in the community and avoid a trip to A&E. This is improving patient care as well as providing savings for the local health system.
