The ESBT partners: Eastbourne, Hailsham and Seaford Clinical Commissioning Group; Hastings and Rother Clinical Commissioning Group; East Sussex County Council; East Sussex Healthcare Trust; Sussex Partnership Foundation Trust: East Sussex Better Together 

The East Sussex Better Together programme was developed to improve care pathways and patient outcomes by integrating health and social care systems. 

This winning programme impressed the judges with its great breadth and scope, as well as an extremely ambitious partnership between the local government and the NHS. The judges were extremely impressed by what the partnership has achieved so far and what they are aiming to achieve in the future.
