Strengthening partnerships between the NHS and the voluntary sector
NHS and voluntary sector providers have a key role to play in delivering the priorities set out in the NHS Mandate, alongside commissioners and others in the wider health and care system. Some emergent and innovative local partnerships are already achieving impressive results in delivering high-quality, person-centred care – often producing significant cost savings too. But much more can be done.
Jan Lemmon, Work Pathways Manager, and her team, have been working with the NHS and the report: Working Together To Deliver the Mandate by Rachael Addicott, commissioned by the Foundation Trust Network (FTN) and the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations (ACEVO), pulls together a wide range of innovative partnerships and projects between health trusts and voluntary sector providers across the country to consider how the barriers to effective partnership working can be overcome. Certitude’s involvement is written up on page 4. A link to the article by the Kings Fund and the report is available here.
