Halton Provider Alliance

Process to select a VCFSE member

Context

The Halton Provider Alliance has been established to bring health and social care providers together as part of the One Halton Governance arrangements and to support the delivery of integrated care for local people in Halton. 

The vision and purpose of the One Halton approach is  “To improve the general health and wellbeing of the people of Halton, working together to provide the right level of treatment close to home, so that everyone in the borough can live longer, healthier and happier lives.”

During 2019, a review of the Governance arrangements for One Halton & the creation of the Provider Alliance identified the opportunity to increase the representation of the VCFSE sector.  The One Halton Programme Board agreed the new arrangements which included the opportunity to invite VCFSE representative from a frontline / provider organisation or group onto the provider alliance
