Most of our providers are part of provider collaboratives that work across multiple boroughs and ICSs to help bring the benefits of working at scale and mutual aid of sharing resources and services to improve quality and to improve patient outcomes, experience and safety across the system.
Provider collaboratives are partnerships made up of two or more NHS trusts that provide hospital, mental health and community services. Provider collaboratives are a key part of system working. By working together, providers:
- support local decision making
- tackle unwarranted variation in standards of care and health inequalities
- build resilience across systems
- support staff more effectively
