Bassetlaw Place Partnership

Bassetlaw has a strong history of people and organisations working together to improve the health and lives of local people.  We are strengthening this collaboration through the development of a Place Partnership made up of organisations that play an active role on this important agenda.

Our core Bassetlaw Place Partnership is made up of Healthwatch Nottingham, Bassetlaw Community and Voluntary Service, the three Bassetlaw Primary Care Networks (groups of GPs), Nottinghamshire County Council, Bassetlaw District Council, Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, and Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust.

Underpinned by a memorandum of understanding, the Place Partnership supports the district’s three Primary Care Networks, overseeing the performance of the partnership, and enabling developments and strategy best delivered at place level, for all Bassetlaw’s 117,000 residents.

We have one shared goal: to work together to improve the health of people in Bassetlaw. Our priority in the next six months is to tackle health inequalities and focus on the needs of our community. In particular how we improve support for those with mental health concerns or those who are particularly vulnerable.

The wider Place Partnership priorities are:

  • Sustainability (environmental and financial) 
  • Meeting the same day/urgent needs of local people 
  • Supporting those with mental health needs
  • Tackling health inequalities, especially for our most vulnerable
  • Focusing on the needs of children and younger people 
  • Promoting inclusiveness through digital confidence 
  • Reducing social isolation and loneliness. 

Primary Care Networks seek to link staff from general practice, community-based services, hospitals, mental health services, social care and voluntary organisations to deliver joined-up care for populations of approximately 30,000-50,000. In Bassetlaw, there are 3 Primary Care Networks:

  • Retford and Villages
  • Newgate
  • Larwood and Bawtry

The Place Partnership also locates place-based developments within the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (SYB ICS) which brings together the partners that plan and deliver health and care services from across Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham, Barnsley and Sheffield, and the Nottingham & Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System.

Bassetlaw Clinical Commissioning Group will be forming part of the new Nottinghamshire and Nottingham Integrated Care System (ICS) from July 2022 (subject to legislation).  The ICS will also continue to actively engage in the work of the Place Partnership.

The Bassetlaw Place Plan 2019-2021 sets out the strategic direction for the Bassetlaw Place Partnership, and focuses on priorities most appropriately led at place level.

The ICP priorities are those identified by Bassetlaw partners as those where by working across NHS, local government and voluntary sectors and beyond, the greatest impact on the ambitions for healthy individuals families and communities can be achieved, that would not be possible without such collaboration.

This will realise the vision for the Bassetlaw place, to deliver improvement in experiences, health and wellbeing for Bassetlaw citizens by 2021, through simpler, integrated, responsive and well understood services which ensure people get the right support at the right time.

Using the lived experience of Bassetlaw people, partners are working together on shared projects and initiatives on the following priorities as outlined in our ‘alignment model’ below.
