Place-based integration in City and Hackney

Organisation: North East London Health and Care Partnership

North East London Health and Care Partnership (NEL) logo

As embedded strategic advisors to City and Hackney CCG in North East London (NEL), we provided strategy and programme support over three years to strengthen collaborative working and accelerate out-of-hospital partnership programmes around local strategic priorities.

We ran whole-system visioning workshops (200+ stakeholders) to scope an ambitious 10-year transformative alliance contract to incentivise quality improvement, service integration and operational efficiencies with the intention of achieving vertical integration across providers at neighbourhood level. This was paused during Covid.

We continued our strategy and transformation consultancy, using the previously established aims for out-of-hospital transformation as the basis for developing the governance to support the new Place-based Partnership and building upon the previous partnership arrangements. This involved close stakeholder work to agree strategic priorities, including with the Health and Wellbeing Board, public health, and service delivery leads, and multiple board/executive development exercises.

The impact of our work

The resulting governance framework embedding the partnership’s distributed leadership model is now in place and elements of it have been adopted by other local Place-based Partnerships.
