City Health Care Partnership

City Health Care Partnership CIC (CHCP CIC) is a co-owned for better profit business providing a wide range of health and care services to over half a million people across numerous geographical areas (Hull, East Riding, N Lincolnshire, NE Lincolnshire, Knowsley, Wigan and St Helens). A socially motivated company, its diverse portfolio of businesses and its registered charity allow CHCP CIC to invest back into services, staff and the communities in which it works.

CHCP CIC provides over 75 diverse services in community settings, minimising the need for acute care in hospital through early interventions, community-based treatment and promotion of healthy lifestyles. Services include End of Life Care, District Nursing, TB Clinics, Community Paediatric Nursing, Health Visiting, School Nursing, Sexual Health, Dentistry, Public Health, Prison Health, GP Practices, Minor Injury Units, Eating Disorders Service, Carers Support and Psychological Wellbeing, to name but a few.

CHCP CIC’s other businesses include City Health Pharmacy Ltd, a retail, care home and wholesale pharmacy business; Tangerine Discretionary PCC Ltd, a contingency and risk business; Albion Health Alliance, investing in businesses looking to develop health improving products with three other like-minded organisations, and City Ventures, a property business.

Its charity, City Health Care Partnership Foundation, enables the organisation to give extra support to the communities in which it works, as well as supporting staff to engage in charitable activities through a staff sponsorship scheme. The organisation’s most recent Social Return on Investment audit showed a return of £36.38 for every £1 spent on community funded activities and our annual patient survey (2015) showed that 98% of all respondents were satisfied with their standard of care and support.

CHCP CIC was ranked 46th in the Times Top 100 best not-for-profit companies to work for in the UK in 2014 and again in 2015. The organisation has also attained Investors in People Silver and been placed 38th by the National Centre for Diversity in this year’s Top 100 index highlighting the best of the UK across 600 organisations.

Name:Andrew Burnell

Title :CEO

Andrew is the Chief Executive of the City Health Care Partnership CIC (CHCP CIC), into which Hull Teaching Primary Care Trust transferred its provider services on 1st June 2010.

After starting his career as a Registered General Nurse (RGN), Registered Mental Nurse (RMN) and Registered Health Visitor (RHV), Andrew held numerous NHS clinical and managerial positions before progressing to the Northern and Yorkshire Regional Office and the Department of Health (DoH) in Leeds. Andrew then became the Director of Primary Health Care Services and Nursing for West Hull PCT.

Following the reconfiguration of PCTs through the governmental white paper ‘Commissioning a Patient Led NHS’ (2005), Andrew was successful in gaining the post of Director of Provider Services and Nursing for NHS Hull, which led to his current appointment. The team at CHCP CIC had been working as a DoH Pathfinder for the externalisation of the PCT’s provider services into a social enterprise since early 2006 and it was the first “Right To Request” organisation to go live.
