Practice Partner Network

About the Practice Partner Network (PPN)

 PPN Executive Sponsor'At the beginning I thought that the Network was something that would be done ‘to’ us, but now it feels like something that is being done ‘with’ us. Participating is the key – the more you put in the more you get out. I think it is something worth investing my time in – it feels valuable.'

 What are the key objectives of the Practice Partner Network?

  • building a 'special relationship' with a small network of receptive and highly motivated NHS organisations who can rapidly pilot new knowledge, processes, skills and tools
  • creating a powerful niche role for the Practice Partner Network within the NHS Institute's development and dissemination process to enable better, quicker learning for the NHS
  • supporting the Practice Partner Network to act as eyes and ears for the NHS Institute within the wider health and social care system and help build the evidence base of the NHS Institute.

Following a successful pilot in 2006, the concept of a 'test and learn network', which provides an opportunity for organisations to work closely with the NHS Institute, has been embraced by senior leaders across the NHS. Interest in joining the PPN has been exceptional and we now  have over 50 member organisations, who will be working with the NHS Institute over the next 12 months.
