Prior to 1st July 2022, AWP’s services were commissioned by local NHS Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs):
- Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire (BSW) CCG
- Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) CCG
From 1st July 2022, CCGs were replaced by Integrated Care Boards, who are responsible for their Integrated Care System.
AWP is also a member of the South West Regional Provider Collaborative which covers those specialised services commissioned by NHS England. We are committed to working closely with our partners to shape the two ICSs to ensure the best care is provided to the populations we serve, and decisions are taken at a local level.
We will continue to work with our partners to develop the Community Mental Health Framework. This will provide a great opportunity to change how we provide services in the community and deliver care closer to home.
As we operate in increasingly integrated systems, our partnerships with both statutory and voluntary sector organisations will become ever more important. We already work with a number of these organisations, including community physical health providers and specialist mental health charities, and we will continue to develop our relationships with them to provide more joined up care and treatment for the people we serve.
