Cross Economy working – Better Care Together

Cross Economy

As part of a national drive for new models of care, the Better Care Together Vanguard was formed to bring together Health and Social Care organisations in North Lancashire and South Cumbria with the aim of developing revolutionary solutions to enhance sustainability and quality across their core work streams; Out of Hospital, Planned Care and Women and Children’s.

The Challenge

  1. In order to inform this process, the Better Care Together partners collaborated with the WRaPT project to produce a workforce baseline to illustrate workforce capacity across the region. This was needed in order to reach a starting point in understanding capacity across the region, across the eleven organisations involved in the cross-economy transformation.

The Outcome

Better Care
The WRaPT tool has been integral in the development of a cross-economy workforce profile. The tool has enabled hands on, service-led and population focused workforce redesign and is a must for delivering an integrated care solution in an evolving environment.
