What is Core20PLUS5?

Core20PLUS5 is a national NHS England and NHS Improvement approach to support the reduction of health inequalities at both national and system level. The approach defines a target population cohort – the ‘Core20PLUS’ – and identifies ‘5’ focus clinical areas requiring accelerated improvement.

NHS England's approach to reducing inequalities

Our approach to Core20PLUS5

Addressing inequalities across clinical priorities, inclusion health and multiple deprivation is challenging. Our approach is to work closely with our thirteen Community Partnerships. We will align Core20PLUS5 and these locally determined plans to reduce inequalities. These locally derived priorities will look slightly different for each Community Partnership depending on the needs of their local population. We are also supporting the Children and Young People Core20PLUS5 by commissioning some new support services.

The Core20PLUS5 funding for Bradford District and Craven is being managed by the Reducing Inequalities Alliance (within Bradford District and Craven Health and Care Partnership) but will be implemented via Community Partnerships working together within a locality model.

What can’t be funded?

  • Activity and costs that have already taken place.
  • Activity that promotes a particular political or religious point of view
  • Applications from individuals

Children and young people

NHS England also have a framework for children and young people:

You can find out more about this approach on the NHS England website.

We will be working towards understanding the needs of our children and young people in our district and the priority areas defined.

In Bradford District and Craven, we have chosen to enhance the children and young people’s mental health priority with a focus on prevention of the impact of adversity and trauma:

  • Prevention and early help for children and young people to reduce Adverse Childhood Experiences
