A new report launched today (15 June) at Confed17, looks to better understand how to build trust across systems to promote more effective collaborative working.

Trustworthy Collaboration, written for NHS Employers by Prof Veronica Hope-Hailey of the University of Bath, explores the challenges of building trust across health systems, in the context of the 50 vanguard sites tasked with delivering transformational change through new care models. Three vanguards sites feature as case studies in the report:

  • Royal Free London Vanguard
  • Stockport Together
  • Somerset Symphony Programme

The report looks into the challenges facing the leaders of the partner organisations within the vanguards, who are required to collaborate to deliver transformational change. Trust is essential to collaboration, the report states, but achieving this is easier said than done. 

For the vanguards, trust was an important ingredient for ensuring success. It was vital for senior leaders to swiftly establish trust with other leaders across multiple and complex systems. 

The report explores the meaning of trust in organisations and offers six key recommendations for how to successfully achieve it.
