New Care Models

Just over a year ago the NHS invited individual organisations and partnerships to apply to become 'vanguard' sites for the new care models programme, one of the first steps towards delivering the NHS Five Year Forward View and supporting improvement and integration of services. A grand total of 50 vanguards have been selected and each site will now take the lead on the development of new care models which will act as the blueprints for the NHS moving forward and the inspiration to the rest of the health and care system.

The Trust is delighted to be a partner in the Better Care Together vanguard which aims to improve the way health services are working with a much more integrated out-of-hospital sector and the Fylde Coast Local Health Economy vanguard which is aiming to deliver more support in the heart of the community and less in hospital.
