Peer support for local systems

We've teamed up with the Local Government Association (LGA), NHS Clinical Commissioners (NHSCC) and NHS Confederation to offer a range of support for sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs), integrated care systems (ICSs) and local health and care systems.

What is the peer support offer?

Our support is specifically designed to help those who voluntarily seek help from within the sector and is free to all systems. We are offering support tailored to help local systems including one-to-one peer mentoring, peer facilitated workshops and peer reviews of your system working in light of COVID-19.

Our aim is to help provide an external perspective to challenge your thinking on the next steps of your integration journey. These offers can take place virtually and are fully flexible to be tailored to your specific needs.

Jointly, our organisations give us unique credibility and authority as a partnership with a uniquely sector-led approach - meaning we are qualified and equipped to support local leaders to build effective relationships. 

The peer support we offer aims to help system partners to forge new collaborative relationships, build shared understanding and agree next steps. Our support is based on the leadership improvement approaches used within local government, developed by the LGA using senior, experienced and credible peers who either work within the NHS and social care organisations, or have very recent experience of leading and supporting local system working.

Other related support

This offer sits alongside the NHS Confederation-led regional networks for STP and ICSs, an approach also supported by LGA, NHSCC and NHS Providers. The networks will allow partnership leaders to debate key issues arising from system working and to share learning regionally and nationally, and our offer will complement this with bespoke, frontline, peer-led support for individual STPs or systems. Our advisors would also be happy to signpost other training, development and support products from across our memberships.
