PPP Round 1

Round 1 of the Partner Priority Programme launched on 8th November 2017, bringing frontline professionals, researchers and leaders from Partner organisations including CCGs, NHS Trusts, Local Authorities and Universities together to share knowledge and experience in order to evaluate new models of out of hospital treatments and care.  In total, eleven projects have been supported as part of PPP Round 1 mainly focused on evaluating integrated/multi-disciplinary team and new pathway developments within and across primary, secondary, community health and social care.   At initiative level common interests have included, for example, falls prevention, enhanced primary care, community teams, clinicians in the community, rehabilitation, transitional care, mental health and condition-specific support e.g. for cancer, COPD, CVD and diabetes.  In line with wider CLAHRC NWC goals, the projects have also been asked to focus on the cross-cutting themes of health inequality and public and patient involvement.
