Joint Community Services – WWL and Bridgewater 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.
In their revised clinical model, the organisations identified a selected number of changes to their current activity and workforce that required analysis though WRaPT. These elements included:
- The introduction of a Single Point of Access and the consequent impact on administration functions and triage activities.
- Recruitment to new roles that would absorb non specialist activities from specialist roles.
- Reduced travel time due to the introduction of mobile technology.
