NHS Confederation | November 2018 | Letting Local Systems Lead
In Letting Local Systems Lead, NHS Confederation are calling for action to remove the barriers to effective local system working.
The publication of Letting Local Systems Lead follows a survey of NHS Confederation members which found that:
- Six in ten leaders (61%) agree that sustainability and transformation partnerships (STPs) and integrated care systems (ICSs) represent the right approach for partnership working between the NHS and local government.
- But the vast majority of respondents considered that only moderate progress (44%) or a little progress (42%) had been made in implementing the system working approach set out in the NHS Five Year Forward View
- When asked what would make a difference, local leaders identified better local partnership working, improved engagement with staff, patients and communities, more effective local governance and a more supportive oversight regime (Source: NHS Confederation)
