Our provider collaborative

Our provider collaborative

We are a region that thrives on collaborations and this has never been more apparent than during the past year. By working together, we have been able to deal with the many challenges posed by a global pandemic.

The relationships that have enabled us to do this have been built over many years and driven by a shared ambition to do the very best for our patients, local communities and those who work for us. They also span many different partners from primary care, public health, local authorities and voluntary organisations to our colleges, school, universities and businesses and many more.

Even before Covid, these relationships were essential to meeting the ever-changing needs and expectations for health and care - from a growing and older population to new treatments and technologies.  As NHS providers across the North East and North Cumbria we have already embraced many of these challenges of our ever-changing healthcare landscape, and have improved care and the experiences of patients as a result, but there is more to do.

As a result, NHS provider chief executives across the North East and North Cumbria, have agreed to form a ‘Provider Collaborative’. You can visit the new provider collaborative website here.
