Work to develop new models of integrated care across Northumberland is being led by Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and NHS Northumberland Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), together with all partners of the Northumberland Integration Board.

NTW also provides a number of regional and national specialist services – including its Ferndene facility in Prudhoe
