Growing local economies

Growing money
The NHS has a significant role to play in driving growth within local economies.

By aligning organisational strategies with local growth priorities, NHS organisations can open themselves up to exciting new actors and funding sources that can help achieve their aims.

Sign up to our local growth bulletin for the latest news on this key agenda.

How we can help

We are the only body directly helping health economies to engage with their local leaders of growth – building partnerships with which to drive lasting improvements in public services for local communities.

Our NHS local growth adviser, Michael Wood, is leading this programme, working at both national and local level. 

At a national level, he will work with government and public, private and third sector representative bodies to demonstrate and champion the NHS’s role in bringing greater regional economic prosperity and to influence future policy. 

Locally, he will directly support individual NHS organisations to link with their local leaders of growth to understand, develop and build a common agenda, potentially bringing significant external revenues and benefits in local service design and delivery.
