Pathway collaborative learning

Following the fantastic success of the first phase of a collaborative learning programme for Integrated Care Systems (ICSs), Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Integrated Care System joined Pathway's second phase of the scheme, which kicked off on Friday 22 March with an all-day in-person session at Crisis London Skylight Centre.   

Funded by NHS England, the programme is an integrated learning network with six other ICSs, which share good practices of inclusive health and build on methods of tackling health and care inequalities.

ICSs are a great opportunity to address the longstanding health inequalities faced by vulnerable groups and meet the ambitions of Core20Plus5 and the NHS England Inclusion Health framework. Through a partnership with Groundswell and NHS England, we will work with this new cohort to explore these opportunities to achieve health equality, what needs to change, and the delivery and strategy activities needed. Lived experience voices will again play a big part in this learning journey, along with expert speakers from across the health and social care spheres.   

Participating ICSs this time round are Surrey Heartlands, West Yorkshire, Cambridgeshire & Peterborough ICS, Black Country, Cheshire and Merseyside, Birmingham and Solihull, and Kent and Medway. Suffice to say, we can’t wait to start getting to know them and set about expanding our network of system leaders looking to move the dial on inclusion health.   

Alex Bax, Chief Executive of Pathway, said:

We have already seen from the first phase of this programme how much excellent practice exists out there, and how keen leaders across the system are to tackle the unacceptable health inequalities faced by some of our most vulnerable and excluded populations. It has been hugely gratifying to see the interest in joining this second cohort, in what amounts to a clear demonstration of the growing momentum of this movement for change.
