The NHS Long-Term Plan calls for a step change in advancing practice requiring capacity to be built at national, regional and sub-regional level, e.g. in Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs)/Integrated Care Systems (ICSs) or ‘faculties’ to drive change.

With HEE’s National Centre at the hub, the concept of a ‘Faculty’ at both regional and sub-regional level is a virtual ‘hub and spoke’ model; based on strong co-production, co-ordination and extensive stakeholder engagement on all matters relating to advancing practice.
