Health Integration Teams

Bristol Health Partners is a dynamic collaboration between four NHS Trusts serving the area (Avon and Wiltshire Mental Health Partnership, North Bristol Trust, UH Bristol and the PCT), the city’s two universities and its local authority. Our purpose is to transform the understanding, prevention and treatment of key health problems in Bristol.

The organisations that comprise Bristol Health Partners have formidable strengths in a range of health-related fields and a long history of joint working.  This collaboration brings a new dynamic approach to the way that innovative health benefits will be delivered to patients.

Bristol Health Partners is forming Health Integration Teams (HITs) which are cross-organisation, interdisciplinary groups set up to harness research, innovation, education, patient care and prevention strengths, to tackle major health priorities by working together in new and different ways. New teams are being forged to explore the new opportunities which being designated a HIT can provide.

For further information regarding Bristol Health Partners and HITs, please refer to the documents below:

If you are interested in developing a HIT or are already involved in one we strongly recommend that you attend one of the drop-in sessions (details below).
