In response to the review’s recommendation, Department of Health and Cabinet Office launched a joint initiative on 15 July 2014 to support health and care organisations explore the potential advantages of mutualising their services. The Pathfinder Programme is designed to support a small number of pioneering trusts, either individually or in partnership. It is open to all foundation trusts and NHS trusts.
Expressions of Interest (EOI) are open until 4 September 2014. To participate, send your expression of interest form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Drawing on a £1 million fund, trusts participating in the programme will have technical, legal and consultancy support to help them:
- understand what mutualisation means for them
- find solutions to practical barriers to becoming mutual organisations
