NHS England has today (15 December) announced £962,000 of new funding to support and spread the work of the Working Together Partnership Vanguard, which is a partnership of the seven hospital trusts in South and Mid Yorkshire and North Derbyshire, including Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust.

The vanguards are 50 nationally chosen partnerships. Each vanguard takes a lead on the development of new care models which will act as blueprints for the NHS moving forward and the inspiration to the rest of the health and care system. The Working Together Partnership Vanguard’s new care model is to explore what can be achieved when seven local hospital trusts work together to strengthen each organisation’s ability to deliver safe, sustainable and local services.

Dr Des Breen, Medical Director of the Working Together Partnership Vanguard, said: “Over the last two years, the seven NHS trusts who make up the Working Together Partnership have delivered some real benefits. This has included developing new ways of delivering care, spearheading innovative procurement methods which have saved more than £1million pounds and using digital technology to make it easier for clinicians to deliver timely and seamless care across the seven trusts.

“We are therefore very pleased that our funding has been agreed for a further year because this means we can continue this important work and also play a key role in bringing to fruition the aspirations outlined in the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Sustainability and Transformation plan.”

The Working Together Partnership is a partnership of:

  • Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
  • Doncaster & Bassetlaw Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust
  • The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust
  • Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust
  • Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
