Welcome to the North East Combined Authority, a new legal body that brings together the seven councils which serve County Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Sunderland.

Our ambition is to create the best possible conditions for growth in jobs, investment and living standards, to make the North East an excellent location for business, to prioritise and deliver high quality infrastructure and to enable residents to raise their skill levels and to benefit from economic growth long into the future. 

To deliver these aims we have united to speak with one voice to Government, business, investors and partners.

Health and Wealth - Closing the gap in the North East

National experts have challenged North East health and care leaders to be more ambitious and to close the health and wealth gap with the rest of the country by making a more radical shift towards preventing poor health.

The report of the Commission for Health and Social Care Integration urges North East local government and NHS services to take a fresh look at how the region’s significant health and wellbeing challenges could be tackled.  It calls for better joint working across NE authorities and advises that the key way to improve health in the region is to get people back into work.

The report sets out ten recommendations for health and care leaders across County Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, Northumberland, North Tyneside, South Tyneside and Sunderland to break the vicious circle of poor health and poverty. In the coming weeks and months, each of these organisations will be considering the detail of the report and agreeing their response to the recommendations.
