NECS have partnered up with health sector experts from Canterbury, New Zealand to support new care models.
NECS has formed a five year partnership with Streamliners New Zealand Limited (SNZ) and The Canterbury District Health Board (CDHB) to share knowledge and capability with other organisations committed to improving the effectiveness of health and social care services through collaboration and patient centred design. The learning will utilise the experience from across the Canterbury health system which has been on a 10 year journey applying a whole-of-system approach to the provision of health and social care.
The agreement comes on the back of their contributions to work underway with South Tyneside CCG.
The aims of the partnership are to help support emerging Integrated Care Systems with system-wide working and transforming the design and delivery of new models of care.
