The Horizons team provides bespoke strategic innovative interventions to the NHS and the wider public sector.

Over the past 12 months, the Horizons team has supported change at every level of the NHS system: helping NHS trusts in special measures to transform culture; supporting Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) and Accountable Care Organisations (ACOs) to build shared suppose and strategise for action; facilitating a 30 year forward view on primary care for NHS England; supporting the NHS Leadership Academy to identify future leadership development directions; running a thriving virtual community for STP finance leads on behalf of NHS England and NHS Improvement.

The growing demand for the skills of the Horizons team in the wider public sector and a desire to create similar capacity elsewhere in central government has resulted in us working with and/or advising the Cabinet Office (an “unconference” for the Permanent Secretaries and top civil servants), the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (on a greater contribution for volunteers) and the Home Office (Police First and the Police Frontline Review).
