What are NHS vanguards?
In January 2015, the NHS invited individual organisations
and partnerships to apply to become ‘vanguard’ sites for the new care models
programme, one of the first steps towards delivering the NHS Five Year Forward
View and supporting improvement and integration of services.
All 50 NHS vanguard sites will take a lead on the
development of new care models which will act as the blueprints for the NHS
moving forward and the inspiration to the rest of the health and care system.
There are 5 types of new care models (containing 50 vanguard sites):
Integrated primary and acute care systems (9 NHS
Joining up GP, hospital, community and
mental health services
Multispecialty community providers (14 NHS
Moving specialist care out of hospitals
into the community
Enhanced health in care homes (6 NHS vanguard

Who are the key personnel at NHS vanguards? And how can I engage with
NHS vanguards are local NHS and care
consortiums that lead the development of new and better ways of providing care
in the NHS. Through the new care models programme, complete redesign of the
whole health and care systems are being considered. The government has pledged
its commitment to NHS vanguards by releasing a support package as well as
access to a £200m transformation fund. This is to enable them to move quickly
and remove the barriers that stop them delivering the best care. Can your
organisation help them achieve their radical change and innovation agenda?
