About this event

The King’s Fund is working with NHS and care organisations to support the development of the new care models set out in the NHS five year forward view. This work has been commissioned by the new care models programme, which is a partnership of seven arms-length bodies, including NHS England, Monitor and the NHS Trust Development Authority.

A total of 50 vanguard sites across England have now been announced. These will take the lead in developing their new care models with the aim of providing blueprints and inspiration for the rest of the health and care system.

On 17 September 2015, The King’s Fund held the first meeting of its community of practice for the nine primary and acute care systems vanguard sites. The aim is to develop and share thinking on the leadership and governance of the new systems and on how to deliver effective cultural change.
