    9 June 2017: Linking London NCOP Update

    Heading into June we have now completed the pilot phase of the NCOP in the North East delivery Hub and had our final NCOP Steering Group meeting of the academic year. We have been pleased with how this phase has progressed and will be looking at building on the lessons learnt over the summer as we turn our attention to the other two delivery hubs as well as continuing to work in the North East Hub. Thank you to everyone who has been involved in this stage and we very much look forward to our continued work with you all going forward.
