Systems & Places

We are working with Integrated Care Systems in Gloucestershire; West Yorkshire and Harrogate; Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin; and Suffolk and North East Essex to explore models for integrating creative health at a systems level. This programme is supported by NHS England.

We are working with colleagues in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to share learning from the different systems and policy environments in the four nations.



Partnerships & Collaborations

Academic Health Science Centres and Networks

Health Innovation Manchester and the Manchester Institute for Arts, Health and Social Change are developing a Creative Health Hive to explore knowledge exchange and support the delivery of the creative health agenda across Greater Manchester communities.

We are collaborating with Imperial College Health Partners to develop a pilot with the North West London Health and Care Partnership.

We are supporting King’s Health Partners to disseminate learning from the SHAPER Programme.

National organisations and networks

We are working with Care England to explore how we can engage with and support the wider care sector.

We have a Memorandum of Understanding with the Culture, Health and Wellbeing Alliance and the LENs (Lived Experience Network). They are key partners for the NCCH in connecting to their regional champions and networks of more than 5000 members.

We are developing a Memorandum of Understanding with the National Academy for Social Prescribing to support work across shared priority areas with a focus on health inequalities.


Co-production & Creativity

Creative Health Huddles are inter-disciplinary learning activities for small groups to explore co-production with creativity and lived experience at the heart. Huddles may be developed in the workplace or in short residential programmes.

The first Huddles are planned for 2021-22.
