Bristol Health Partners and Health Integration Teams
Health Integration Teams
Bristol Health Partners is a dynamic collaboration between four NHS Trusts serving the area, the city's two universities and its local authority. The aim is to generate significant health gain and improvements in service delivery in Bristol by integrating, promoting and developing Bristol's strengths in health services, research, innovation and education. Health Integration Teams (HITS) are the way Bristol Health Partners work. They draw their membership from some or all of our partner organisations and work across disciplines. They are tackling major health priorities by working together in a new integrated way.
Currently, members of the Centre for Primary Care are directors on two HITs: Integration to avoid hospital admission (ITHACA) led by Sarah Purdy and Reducing the Burden, and improving the management, of respiratory Infections in the Community and the NHS (RuBICoN) led by Alastair Hay.
