The NHS recognises the need to find new ways of working and has recently set up a large-scale new programme of work to recruit 50 vanguard NHS organisations to test out new models of care around the country.

This Directory was originally put together to support the vanguard sites – but it is a fantastic resource to the whole health and care community as it places all the current public and third sector improvement bodies into one easy-to-use reference document.

The range of organisations listed is really diverse – from the CQC right through to the National Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGB&T) Partnership – and it’s a constantly evolving document. So, if you think someone is missing or you want to get your organisation included in the next version there’s a form at the back to complete and return.
