Partnership working

We work in partnership with care providers and other local organisations to take collective responsibility for managing resources, delivering NHS standards, and improving the health of the populations we serve.

Covid -19

A real positive out of the Covid-19 crisis is the relationships we have built across all partners.

    • It’s great to be working with professionals from across the public sector with a common purpose and enable them to share our messaging.
    • Our work with the NHS has been more focused on third party advocacy (behind-the-scenes) – helping them help others understand how we work and our processes.
    • And it’s great to have the support of the media and social media, enabling and helping them to get important messages across.
