North east and Yorkshire

The North East and Yorkshire region has a strong track record of excellent education and training, and workforce innovation.

It has a diverse population of 8.5m and a health and social care workforce of 460,000. We cover from Sheffield and Leeds to Newcastle and the Scottish borders, north Lincolnshire and Hull to north Cumbria and Carlisle. Educationally the region contains five medical schools and 16 universities as well as a strong learning culture in our NHS providers. We are committed to growing the supply of staff through training medical, dental, pharmacy, healthcare science, nursing and midwifery, and allied health professionals; as well as introducing innovative roles such as nursing associates, physician associates and advanced clinical practitioners.   

Integrated Care systems

To help ensure health and care services are built around the needs of people in the region, local providers and commissioners are working together in Integrated Care Systems (ICS). The NHS Long Term Plan confirmed that all parts of England would be served by an integrated care system from April 2021.
