Collaborative Newcastle

Collaborative Newcastle is an innovative new partnership working to improve the health, wealth and wellbeing of everyone in Newcastle.  Through new ways of closer joint working between some of the City’s largest organisations  Collaborative Newcastle aims to reduce inequality and provide better opportunities for all – children, families, adults and the elderly alike.

Partners include: Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Newcastle City Council, Newcastle Gateshead NHS Clinical Commissioning Group, Cumbria, Northumberland, Tyne and Wear NHS Foundation Trust (CNTW), Newcastle University and Northumbria University working closely with Newcastle GP Services, the GP Federation for Newcastle, Primary Care Networks and the voluntary sector represented by Connected Voice and Blue Stone Collaborative.

Some of the things they’re working on right now…

  • Duplication to personalisation: using data across organisations to help identify and avoid duplication, and ultimately deliver more tailored and personalised care.
  • Collaborative service transformation: collectively redesigning key services to be more joined-up, person-centred and community-led, including those for children and families, mental health and homelessness.
  • Newcastle neighbourhoods: supporting local communities to lead improvements in their own health and wellbeing by transforming their communities
