Collaborative model features in innovation report

April 2018

A recent report by the Innovation Unit and the Health Foundation has highlighted Altogether Better’s model for collaborative practice as a successful approach to scaling innovation within the NHS.

The report, Against the Odds, shares insights on how innovations in the NHS can be spread. It features ten stories, including Altogether Better, and picks out eight ‘key enablers for scale’.

Altogether Better works by creating collaboration between people within the health service and people from local communities. It supports and develops leaders in general practice to be able to respond to the new challenges faced by the NHS. Leaders use the Altogether Better collaborative model, inviting local people to become health champions, working alongside health professionals to reshape services and to offer innovative activities and support. 

Altogether Better has introduced its collaborative practice model into over 100 GP practices across 23 clinical commissioning group areas.
