The WRaPT team deliver a range of training sessions to facilitate use of the WRaPT tool as well as awareness of the WRaPT process.

Radiology Service Transformation – North Cumbria University Hospitals


North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust is a medium sized acute Trust which delivers radiology services across two acute sites and several community hospitals in the North of England.

The hospital is in the process of improving its trauma services. In order to do this effectively, the Trust needs to provide a 24 hour on-site CT service at one of its acute sites.


Cardiology Pathway Redesign – Warrington and Halton Hospitals


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.


Acute Medical Staffing – West Cumberland Hospital


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.


Integrated Community Services Transformation – Lancashire Care NHS FT


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.


Community Older Adult Mental Health & Secure Services – Lancashire Care NHS FT


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.


Joint Community Services – Wrightington, Wigan and Leigh NHS FT & Bridgewater Community Healthcare NHS FT


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.
