The new care models programme offered an online discussion as we explore the acute care collaboration (ACC) model in depth from a different perspective. The discussion allowed us to share and spread learning from the ACC vanguard communities, including how the vanguards have improved care for patients and the working lives of staff, and discussed how the learning from ACC vanguards can support sustainability and transformation plans (STPs) to improve care for local people.

The session was chaired by Dr Charlie Davie, Managing Director at UCL Partners AHSN, and includes Jacob West as the national ACC Care Model Lead alongside a panel of ACC vanguard directors and representatives. The panel discussed what they have done and learned in setting up their model of care and give a picture of what support might be available for future adopters.

Ahead of the session we shared this introduction to the ACC vanguards.
