Health & Social Care

Health & Social Care

The combined NHS and local authority estates for health and social care (and the creation of new Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships, STPs, that incorporate them) represent one of the most significant areas for releasing capital assets for cost savings and generating new revenue for greatest impact. Insufficient collaboration on strategy at local level, however, has led to a stymying of these benefits. 

  • Our first report, entitled “Building a Sustainable Future for Health and Social Care” proposed a new approach to establishing collaboration for shared estates, infrastructure and systems (such as IT).
  • Our second report on “The Digital Future for Health and Social Care” takes this further, looking at how newly forming STPs could integrate and innovate in digital technology to contribute to transformation across the sectors.

The BBI Health & Social Care programme will continue to address these challenges into 2017-18, seeking new solutions.

Our previous 2016-17 programme and reports are available below.
