As an anchor institution, the NHS has a significant role to play in developing local economies.
By aligning organisational and ICS strategies with local growth priorities, NHS organisations can open themselves up to exciting new partnerships and resources that can help achieve their aims.
We are the only national body directly helping the health sector to engage with their local economic leaders – building partnerships with which to drive lasting improvements in public services for our local communities.
From imagination to implementation: the future of NHS and university collaboration

Our head of health economic partnerships, Michael Wood, is leading this programme, working at both national and local level.
At a national level, he is working 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 is directly support individual NHS organisations and STPs/ICSs to link with their local economic leaders to understand, develop and build a common agenda, potentially bringing significant external revenues and benefits in local service design and delivery.

Better understanding of the local growth agenda can bring the NHS several benefits, including:
- access to significant external funding sources
- greater influence in strategic local discussions
- tailored workforce supply and transformation planning
- more integrated service provision
- quicker access to innovative healthcare solutions.
