Hampshire Together is a partnership between a wide range of bodies who share the common characteristic that they care about the health and wellbeing of the people of Hampshire.
Our Consultation Mandate makes it clear which organisations will be responsible for making which decisions as part of this programme.
The key partners are:
- Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which provides acute hospital services at Andover War Memorial Hospital, Basingstoke and North Hampshire Hospital and Royal Hampshire County Hospital, as well as some services either at or close to patients’ homes.
- The Hampshire, Southampton and Isle of Wight Partnership of Clinical Commissioning Groups who are responsible for planning and commissioning NHS services across north and mid Hampshire. This involves assessing local needs, deciding priorities and strategies, and then buying services on behalf of the population from providers.
- Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust and Solent NHS Trust, who provide community and mental health services for the population of north and mid Hampshire.
- The 10 Primary Care Networks and GP practices who provide primary care services to our population.
- Hampshire County Council, who are responsible for a wide range of services across the county, including adult and children’s social care services and transport. They are also a key partner through the Health and Wellbeing Board, and their Health and Adult Care Select Committee.
- South Central Ambulance Service, who not only provide ambulance services, but run the 111 provision and co-ordinate urgent care for the county.
- The borough and district councils, including Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, Winchester City Council, Test Valley Borough Council, Eastleigh District Council, Hart District Council and East Hampshire District Council. They take a lead on their local populations and are the planning authorities in our area.
- Parish and Town councils across the county, who often speak for their populations and can help shape the programme to ensure it meets the needs of our people.
- The voluntary and community sector organisations that do such an amazing role in supporting our population.
- The University of Winchester and other educational providers in the area.
- The Local Enterprise Partnership.
Our aim is for any new acute hospital to be designed in such a way that it could accommodate partners in mental health, primary health, social care and more in a ‘health campus’.
Hampshire Together is the name associated with a number of projects that involve NHS and social care organisations working in partnership. This Modernising our Hospitals and Health Services programme is part of a wider scope of projects that see health and care organisations across the county working together.
