The partnership brings together clinical expertise, experience and innovation, aiming to improve quality, use resources most effectively, and deliver best practice consistently to all patients.
The SLP is focussed on clinical innovation, achieving best value for money and smarter use of resources to improve care. This allows the partnership to reinvest savings in new, more effective community services. Effective partnership working, joined-up care pathways, and integrated services are long-held aspirations in the NHS and wider public services.
The collaborative approach is based on shared principles and goals – focussed on patients and staff ahead of structures. The SLP has established strong governance across the three trusts, alongside partners such as NHS England, and increasingly with local clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) and local authorities.
A shared commitment to patient-centred planning and clinically-led change is making an impact - for our partners, our staff and, most importantly of course, our patients and carers.
