What are provider collaboratives?
NHS-Led Provider Collaboratives mark a new era for specialised mental health, building on the success of New Care Models for tertiary mental health services. NHS-Led Provider Collaboratives will deliver care closer to home, invest in community services and drive improvements in patient outcomes and experience.
NHS-Led Provider Collaboratives are a new way of planning and providing specialist mental health, learning disability and autism services.
The Provider Collaboratives aim to change the way services are provided with different organisations working closely together. This means that services will be provided closer to home and as much as possible out of hospital.
The Lead Provider, for Adults Eating Disorders Services in the North West and Young People and Families Tier 4 Services across Cheshire & Merseyside, Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, is working with other providers to make improvements to local specialist services for people and their families.
The Provider Collaborative is working with people who use these services as well as people who deliver these services to plan what needs to change in the future.
