In January 2015 the NHS invited organisations and partnerships to apply to become “vanguard” sites for the New Care Model programme, one of the first steps towards delivering the NHS Five Year Forward View and supporting improvement and integration of services.
In March 2015 the first group of Vanguard sites were chosen. Each Vanguard site is to 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.
Whitstable Medical Practice successfully applied to become an MCP Vanguard in partnership with other GP practices and working with other health and social care organisations as shown in the description below. Please click on the image below to enlarge.
