Partnership with NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby CCG

A consultation on the proposed partnership with NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby CCG.

North Yorkshire County Council and NHS Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby Clinical Commissioning Group wish to enter into a partnership agreement to encourage greater integration and planning.

We have an agreed vision to provide a timely transformation towards an integrated approach to the provision of health care, public health and social care services in Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby. The parties believe that by both coordinating and integrating their planning and commissioning activities, this will help facilitate the best use of resources to support the local resident and patient population. This approach will be developed through the joint arrangements with an agreed work plan including the joint commissioning strategy.

The partnership arrangements seeks to provide for shared planning, oversight and commissioning arrangements for the people in Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby so more joint up decisions can be made by each organisation. The arrangements will include the ability to pool budgets between the council and the clinical commissioning group but will mainly concentrate on how both organisations can plan future decisions together that are centred around the individual.

If you would like to comment on this proposed partnership, please email your views to integration@northyorks.gov.uk.
