Delivering integrated health and care – case studies

These case studies, published in November 2018, provide a snapshot of two local areas’ journey towards delivering more integrated approaches to health and care.

Clinical Engagement and Collaboration – Newcastle Gateshead CCG

The Greater Nottingham Transformation Partnership – Nottingham City CCG, Nottingham North & East CCG, Nottingham West CCG, and Rushcliffe CCG

This case study looks at how commissioners and providers in Nottingham used the results of system-wide actuarial analysis to develop a framework that improves care, infrastructure and governance. Download the case study.


The case studies were part of the work of our Core Cities Network, which concluded its activities in Spring 2019. The Core Cities Network was a peer-led network representing clinical commissioning groups from the eight core cities in England outside London – Nottingham, Leeds, Sheffield, Bristol, Newcastle, Birmingham, Liverpool and Manchester. Given the changing NHS landscape and shift to greater collaboration, the themes covered by these case studies and in the wider work of the network are no longer exclusive to cities.
