About Us

Welcome To The 3Sixty Care Partnership

about us rightThe 3Sixty Care Partnership is a unique new joint venture between a federation of 28 GP practices in Kettering, Corby and Wellingborough and Northamptonshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust that aims to bring health and care professionals together to provide community based prevention programmes and joined up health and care treatment and support for our patients where they live. 

about us 2The 3Sixty Care Partnership believes that the combination of a federation of GPs working together with our local community healthcare provider will allow us to look at how we might provide new models of care that suit the needs and challenges in our communities. Working together will help us plan and deliver joined-up services which will we believe will lead to better quality care, better patient satisfaction and better outcomes.


Health and care in Northamptonshire faces increasing challenges, including:

  • A rapidly ageing population
  • One of the fastest growing populations nationally
  • Pockets of deprivation resulting in high levels of obesity, poor diet, smoking and substance misuse
  • Above average levels of depression, learning disability, CVD and cancer
  • Information and knowledge could be better shared across the NHS
  • Uneven allocation of activity between healthcare providers
  • Duplication in coordinating care between providers

Locally and nationally, it is also evident that the NHS and Social Care system is operating under increasing pressure - both clinical and financial.

So we need to evolve how we work. We need to work more efficiently and effectively, change our work practices, and make the best use of available and future technology.

This is not about saving money. It is about making what we have work better for our patients.

The 3Sixty Care Partnership Multi-speciality Community Provider (MCP)

about us 3about us 5Doing things differently and always looking for new ways of providing the best for our patients is a priority now for everyone working in healthcare. It is becoming increasingly clear that collaborating with a range of professionals and voluntary organisations with a focus on prevention and increased patient involvement in managing their own care with the right kind of support is key to achieving high quality, safe care and improved patient outcomes.

We know that care provided in our communities is far more effective and responsive when provided by GPs, community health professionals and patients working closely together.

So, it was clear that locally we needed to enable new ways of providing health care for our patients and one way to achieve this was to create a new joint venture that could quickly become a Multi-disciplinary Community Provider (MCP). The 3Sixty Care partnership allows us to do that and more and the first focus of this new venture is to set up the 3Sixty Care Partnership MCP which will provide joined up health and care to our local communities..

Multi-specialty Community Providers (MCP)

The Five Year Forward View (5YFV), published by NHS England in October 2014, identified several potential new models of care for the future delivery of NHS services in England. The Multispeciality Community Provider (MCP) model is the tone that the 3 Sixty Care Partnership will adopt initially.

Multispeciality Community Providers draw together a wide range of health and care professionals to work together and provide joined up out of hospital services - to provide patient care that is organised around the patient, joined-up, proactive and convenient. GPs will work directly and more closely with secondary care nurses and doctors, mental health professionals, care professionals, local government and the voluntary sector.

MCPs are an opportunity to join up primary care services with wider community-based services like: preventative care, mental health, social care, learning disability services, care home provision, urgent care, pharmacy services and voluntary / private sector services. They offer a real opportunity for everyone providing health and care services to see the full picture of the services available and who provides them.

As MCPs progress the aim is to work closely with local authority social care, to support people to live as independently in the community as possible. People will be supported in their homes and communities to improve patient independence, prevent unnecessary admissions and enable speedy discharge from hospital.
