Workforce Baseline – Stockport Together

Cross Economy

Stockport Together is an integration project covering health & social care across the Stockport area.  The project includes the redesign of clinical pathways and workforce across four areas:

1. Prevention
2. Proactive Care
3. Urgent Care
4. Planned Care

It is a complex programme, including the acute and community services of Stockport Foundation NHS Trust, Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council, Stockport CCG, Pennine Care and all Stockport GPs.

The Challenge

  1. WRaPT have been asked to develop a workforce baseline for the entire programme. This will be the first time that the details for workforce in all the organisations mentioned above, will be held in one place. This will allow the teams to conduct their redesign against a clear understanding of the whole affected workforce, and the activity that they manage across the year

Stockport CCG is committed to be an intelligence-led organisation. The WRaPT tool allows us to apply the same rigour we use in quality assurance and contracting to our workforce planning so that our new models of care are backed up by the right skills and capacity within our collective workforce across health and social care in Stockport.
