WRaPT helped the Bollington, Disley and Poynton neighbourhood teams develop an effective workforce model using the WRaPT tool. The model enabled them to deliver a more person centred approach to care in Care Homes by minimising the rate of admissions and understanding the impact of this across all services in scope in the area.
The WRaPT team worked with the North West Operational Delivery Network (ODN) to create a neonatal workforce baseline across the region, with a view to carry out workforce modelling on high priority areas within this service.
The WRaPT team deliver a range of training sessions to facilitate use of the WRaPT tool as well as awareness of the WRaPT process.
The team identified a gap in the system whereby knowledge of Workforce Planning as a concept and methodology were not widely known or available and have developed a new session to introduce workforce planning to a range of staff inclusive of service or general managers as well as workforce experts.
Over the last few years England has been experiencing increasing demands on its urgent and emergency care services which has put unprecedented pressures on the NHS and its workforce. NHS England has commissioned a review into Urgent and Emergency Care which Health Education England (HEE) is supporting through its Emergency Medicine Workforce Implementation Group (EMWIG) and supporting programmes.
The West Cumberland Hospital (WCH) of North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust has been struggling with issues regarding the recruitment and retention of acute Medical Registrars for a number of years. This has led to a situation where all the out of hours acute medical senior decision maker cover has been provided using premium pay staff.
The Adult Community Services network within Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust faces increases in demand and a reduction in commissioning funding. The team faced a challenge to be 10% more efficient within year for the Integrated Community Service pathway.
The network wanted to know if this could be achieved without affecting quality and safety of patient care. They chose WRaPT to model the workforce transformation.
The community Older Adult Mental Health (OAMH) service in Lancashire Care Foundation Trust (LCFT) is delivered across four localities of Lancashire. These areas all have subtle differences in their delivery of mental health care in the community. This has resulted in different types of administrative structures within each team.
The WRaPT team supported Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust together with Wrightington, Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust in their joint redesign of community service delivery across the Wigan borough.
This new model of care required urgent analysis due to a requirement by the commissioning organisation to fully understand how their stipulated reduction in service costs would be delivered.
