Healthcare models of the future NHS

NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens has recently announced radical new options for the future of local hospitals across the NHS.  The new models being developed by 13 new hospital Vanguards represent the next stage of implementing the NHS Five Year Forward View. 

Acute Care Collaboration Vanguards are designed to spread excellence in hospital services & management across multiple geographies.  By contrast, the 37 vanguards already launched mostly focus on integrating care between GPs, social & community care, mental health and hospital services within their local area.
