In 2015, Sunderland won funding as one of the first vanguard sites in England and started a journey to radically change the way health and social care was delivered to those who need it most.

The All Together Better Sunderland vanguard programme brought a wide range of specialist care providers together to explore how best to work together as one team and improve services for local people in line with the NHS Five Year Forward View.

The overarching aim is to provide better, more efficient community-based, GP-led care using new ways of working, new technologies and improved planning in order to keep people as well as possible and out of hospital. This website provides a range of information and resources that demonstrates the work.
