  • Independent Sector Providers: Priory Healthcare and Cygnet Health Care

We're bring mental health to the forefront, NHS-Led Provider Collaboratives are building on the success of New Care Models for tertiary mental health services.

What will they do?

These Provider Collaboratives will help to deliver care closer to home, invest in community services, and drive significant improvements in patient outcomes and experience.

Our Level Up Experts by Experience are at the heart of everything the Lead Provider Collaborative (LPC) is striving to achieve. This means that in addition to being able to shape services across Cheshire and Merseyside through the forum here will also be opportunities to:

  • Improve literature/online information so that it is helpful, easy to read and accessible
  • Design surveys to allow Young People to feed back
  • Create content/artwork for the Level Up Lead Provider Collaborative website and newsletters
  • Support planning and/or attend community engagement events across Cheshire and Merseyside
  • Engage in a way that you feel comfortable

Getting creative

As experts by experience we want to ensure that our literature, website, and newsletters truly reflect what is important to you. The whole design of Level Up LPC was co-produced with Experts by Experience.
