The Principia MCP has received a further £3.530m for its part in a national NHS programme to implement new models of providing health and care.
A first allocation of £3.791m for the financial year 2015-16 was announced in December 2015 with a second allocation of £3.530m for 2016-17 provided in May 2016. Vanguard funding comes from a national NHS transformation fund of £200 million to support transformational change.
Rushcliffe was announced as a vanguard site in March 2015 following Principia’s proposal to establish a Multi-specialty Community Provider (MCP) model of care. This new model focuses on prevention, proactive and integrated care as well as moving some traditional hospital services out into community settings, closer to home such as long-term conditions management, diagnostics and outpatient clinics.
The Principia MCP is sponsored by Rushcliffe Clinical Commissioning Group and is one of 50 ‘vanguards’ for the national new care models programme which will deliver the NHS Five Year Forward View – the vision for the future of the NHS. Vanguard sites across the country are leading the development new care models that will act as the blueprint for the future of the health and care system in England.
As well as the financial allocation, vanguards also receive a package of practical support from NHS England to transform services at scale and pace.
