Our partnership working is a priority for us. We have developed many innovative partnerships locally, and we have also followed national good practice to enhance and evolve our care provision with local providers.
We are also committed to jointly delivering on our local Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) with our local colleagues. Read more about this below:
First For Wellbeing
First for Wellbeing (FFW) is a joint venture between NHFT, Northamptonshire County Council and the University of Northampton. Together, the three founding organisations have a shared vision for improving the physical, mental and social wellbeing of the population of Northamptonshire.
First for Wellbeing will deliver a range of core wellbeing services. Some of these were previously existing NHS or council services such as the Stop Smoking service that have simply been moved over to sit under the First for Wellbeing family of services.
The core service offering will consist of weight and alcohol management, stop smoking programmes, financial management, housing support, employment and adult learning services, emotional health support and services to promote community inclusion.

3Sixty Care Partnership
NHFT worked with 3Sixty Care GP Federation (covering Corby, East Northants, Wellingborough and surrounding areas), to explore what opportunity working together would provide. We are pleased to announce that NHFT has created a new Multispecialty Community Provider (MCP) structure with 3Sixty Care Ltd; the joint venture is called the 3Sixty Care Partnership. The services that will benefit from being delivered through the partnership are still being developed, however working as the MCP based care model with GP practices and collaborating closely with others, will enable closer working partnerships between primary and community/ mental health, secondary care providers and the voluntary sector. This support will get us to the best possible outcomes for our patients – which is our joint aim. Our new venture was formally launched on 9 February and more information will be shared as our new joint ways of working develops.
Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership
Northamptonshire Health and Care Partnership (NHCP), formerly known as the Northamptonshire STP, consists of key health and care providers in the county. NHCP is not a new organisation but a new way of working in partnership to improve health and care for people living in Northamptonshire. All Partnership organisations remain as separate organisations with their own local responsibilities for the services they provide, but are committed to working together towards the shared NHCP vision for a positive lifetime of health, wellbeing and care in our community. Further information about NHCP is available at www.northamptonshirehcp.co.uk.
You can also download an overview booklet explaining how health and care services operate in our county, providing background information about why there is a need to improve the way we do things, and outlining NHCP’s priorities for a positive lifetime of health, wellbeing and care in our community.
