Our communications and engagement strategy

All Together Better has been in place since 2015 when Sunderland was awarded ‘vanguard status’ and became a national pilot site, funded by NHS England, to test new ways of working to help improve care for patients.

Since then, health and care partners across the City have been working together to think about how services can be better joined up in the community and how, as one health and care system, we can tailor services to meet the needs of our communities and support people to stay healthy and well.
