Gateshead Care Partnership, which brings together the NHS, council and local GPs, was presented with a prestigious Health Service Journal (HSJ) Award this week.

The partnership was presented with the award for Improved Partnerships between Health and Local Government, sponsored by Socitm Advisory, in recognition of how they have streamlined health and social care services for the people of Gateshead.

Gateshead Care Partnership was formed in 2015 and is a unique collaboration between QE Gateshead, Gateshead Council and CBC, whose membership comprises all the local GPs. This means that GPs, hospital staff and social care professionals from the council all come together in a single organisation and help bring a much more coordinated system for patients.
