Cooperation And Working Together (CAWT) is a partnership between the Health and Social Care Services in Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, which facilitates cross border collaborative working in health and social care.
CAWT’s role is to facilitate cross border health and social services. Our primary programme of work is to deliver the European Union INTERREG IVA Priority 2, Theme 1, “Putting patients, clients and their families first” on behalf of the Department of Health, Social Services and Public Safety, Northern Ireland and the Department of Health and Children, Republic of Ireland. We also deliver other cross border projects on behalf of our partner organisations and the Departments of Health in both jurisdictions.
On behalf of the Departments of Health, CAWT is managing the implementation of 12 EU INTERREG IVA funded large scale cross border health and social care projects. The projects have been categorised into five strategic themes; Acute Hospital Services, Primary, Community and Continuing Care (PCCC), Mental Health, Population Health and Disability.
Under INTERREG IIIA, CAWT managed funding in the region of €10.45m / £6.74m for thirty-seven cross border health and social care projects and a further seven PEACE II funded projects to the value of €1.57m / £1.08m. These projects involved the cooperation of hundreds of statutory/voluntary/ community stakeholders from along the border corridor and have brought significant benefits to the resident population.
CAWT has also undertaken cross border work commissioned by the two Departments of Health and our partner organisations.
