The Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership (NHCP) is made up of organisations that want to work together to make sure we have good services in the future.
In 2016, NHS organisations and local councils joined forces in every part of England to develop proposals for improving health and care. A mid-2018 review (of how Northamptonshire's services work together) said that the county needed to improve its care - especially for older people.
When the NHS started in 1948, its health and care services were set up in very different ways. This means that today, not everyone gets the same support and care. Some social care is free for people, and some of it is bought by people from different organisations. This means that people with lots of different needs are looked after by lots of different people who don’t work together.
This is why the following organisations have decided to work together as the NHCP to provide better, more joined-up care:
- DocMed/PML – Principal Medical
- General Practice Alliance Ltd
- Kettering General Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
- Lakeside Healthcare Group
- NHS Corby CCG
- NHS Nene CCG
- Northampton General Hospital NHS Trust
- Northamptonshire County Council
- Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust
- Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire
The transformation priorities for the NHCP are:
The the NHCP was formerly known as the Northamptonshire Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP).
