Provider Collaboratives

Provider Collaboratives are a group of providers of specialised mental health, learning disability and autism services who have agreed to work together to improve the care pathway for their local population.

Each Collaborative is led by an NHS Provider and includes providers from a range of backgrounds, including the voluntary sector, other NHS trusts and independent sector providers. They will also work alongside service users, carers and families.

The key principles which underpin the Provider Collaborative model are:

  • Collaboration between Providers and across local systems
  • Experts by Experience and clinicians leading improvements in care pathways
  • Managing resources across the collaborative to invest in community alternatives and reduce inappropriate admissions/care away from home
  • Working with local stakeholders
  • Improvements in quality, patient experience and outcomes driving change
  • Advancing equality for the local population

Cygnet Health Care are participating in 19 out of the 48 collaboratives that are launching, or have been launched, covering Adult Low and Medium Secure Services, Adult Eating Disorder Services and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS). In addition we are associates to a further 13 providers. The location of our services and the natural clinical flows are the deciding factors in which collaboratives we are participating in. Deaf and Tier 4 PD services are not included in provider collaboratives.

Each provider collaborative has a partnership board that Cygnet sit on and a legally binding partnership agreement outlining how the partners will work together. There are also monthly meetings for operational delivery, clinical governance, finance and contracting, and quality assurance.

By October 2021, all the provider collaboratives will be live and all relevant services will be commissioned by the Provider Collaboratives rather than NHS England. The full list of Cygnet services that are participating, and the NHS Lead Provider Collaborative that they belong to, are as follows:
