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.
WRaPT was tasked with establishing:
- The proportion of staff time within the service that was patient facing.
- The impact on activity if efficiency was not improved, but funding was cut – i.e. what would the situation be if they stayed as efficient as they were.
- The financial impact (workforce cost) of moving activities between bands through a skill mix review.
- Whether ideas for increasing the efficiency of clinical care would be enough to meet the challenge.
