NHS partnership consultation

We are looking for feedback on our plans to make a new agreement with our NHS partners.

We plan to put in place a new formal partnership arrangement (referred to as a 'Section 75 Partnership Agreement') with Norfolk Community Health and Care NHS Trust (NCH&C) and Hertfordshire NHS Foundation Trust (HPFT). This is to work collaboratively to deliver the specialist health services for people with learning disabilities and/or autism.

Whilst this will be a new arrangement, it will continue the previous partnership arrangements that have been in place between the organisations since 2011.

To support this we will also enter a new partnership arrangement (also a section 75 agreement) with NHS Norfolk and Waveney Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG). This agreement will allow us to continue to act on behalf of the CCG. This will also be continuation of the agreement that started in 2011.

Why we are doing this

Working through a partnership agreement ensures we are better able to:

  • Ensure that our social care and specialist health services for people with learning disabilities and/or autism are delivered in a coordinated way
  • Ensure that Norfolk Community Health and Care Trust and Hertfordshire NHS Foundation Trust as providers of specialist health services work together to deliver seamless services
  • Use our resources more effectively and efficiently
