The NHS is heading towards a much greater emphasis on collaboration and partnership working. Our primary role for our acute, integrated provider and ambulance trust members is supporting you in your leadership role at place level and within integrated care systems.
The Acute Network provides a voice for you, supporting you by influencing national policy, sharing good practice and bringing you together with leaders across the health and care system.
We also support you as individual leaders to respond to the challenges you face through networking and learning opportunities – both as a leader of an organisation and in an individual leadership capacity.
And while we know that placed-based and system working are increasingly important to you, we also know that as an acute trust, integrated provider and ambulance trust you have specific issues and challenges that you may want support in addressing. Therefore, you and your teams will benefit from specific networks and activities dedicated to your sector.
Who is the Acute Network for?
- NHS acute trusts and foundation trusts
- Integrated providers who operate across acute, community, mental health and ambulance services
- Ambulance service trusts
