HSJ Award for Provider Collaborative of the Year
Date: 18 November 2022
Last night the North Central and East London (NCEL) Provider Collaborative won a HSJ award for Provider Collaborative of the Year for commissioning and providing Child and Adolescent Mental Health Inpatient Services. NCEL is a collaboration between five trusts and partners and the service users who are at the centre of everything. Over the last two years, five competitors have become five partners delivering child and young person inpatient mental health services across north central and east London. This has created significant improvements to how inpatient care is delivered, allowing savings and reinvestment of significant sums into new community CYP mental health services. The judges appreciated the true collaboration across multiple stakeholders and systems. Outcomes illustrated the value of collaboration and the difference you can make to patients.
The Provider Collaboration consists of:
East London NHS Foundation Trust
North Central London CAMHS
North Central London CCG
Barnet Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust
North East London Foundation Trust
The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust
The initiative has made a real impact to the system and showcased mutual vision and focus on future developments.
