NATH is accountable to both NHS England and the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care Board (ICB).
We report on our progress and key performance indicators on a regular basis to our commissioners and key stakeholders.
We have a NATH Board that is responsible for the NATH Strategy and holding the NATH Operations Team to account. We are hosted by NEMS CBS Ltd and our entire work is conducted on a not-for-proﬁt basis.
The grey lines represent governance / reporting lines.
This is subject to change to reflect ICB structures.
We adopt a partnership approach and work in collaboration to:
Realise the local workforce strategy needed to support population health
Deliver effective service re-design through the development of the current workforce
Support newly trained NHS professionals to work in primary and community care
Recognising the differences and unique challenges at PCN level to tailor our approach and offers
We work in partnership with the Pheonix Programme to support GPs working in Nottingham and Nottinghamshire.
Our celebration of equality, diversity and inclusion
We are committed to working in accordance with the NHS England Diversity and Inclusion - Our Strategic Framework 2018-2022.
Respect, dignity, compassion and care should be at the core of how patients and staff are treated – not only because that is the right thing to do, but because patients’ safety, experience and outcomes are all improved when staff are valued, empowered and supported.
NHS Constitution, 2015
We will work to achieve a cultural change that leads towards consistent consideration of inclusion in business and delivery of key functions.
We recognise the importance of valuing diversity and inclusion in the workplace and understand the beneﬁts that can be achieved by building an inclusive and representative workforce.
We have a crucial role to play, within the Integrated Care System (ICS), in supporting a collaborative, partnership approach to lifelong learning and development that creates ladders of opportunity for all our people. We will use our inﬂuence with stakeholders to further diversity and inclusion in the Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS.
