Workforce Redesign – Better Care Together

Cross Economy

The WRaPT team are supporting Better Care Together with their transformation of health and social care services across North Lancashire and South Cumbria. The programme involves eleven partner organisations across North Lancashire and South Cumbria including North Lancashire Medical Services and South Cumbria Primary Care Collaborative.

All partner organisations are committed to delivering a “population” based approach to promoting wellbeing and providing care in which people and their needs are the focus rather than processes and buildings.

The Challenge

Five clinical pathways have been identified for service and workforce redesign using WRaPT:

  1. Planned Care (MSK, Ophthalmology, Cardiology and Radiology)
  2. Out of Hospital (South Cumbria)
  3. Out of Hospital (North Lancashire
  4. Women and Children
  5. In Hospital

Our Approach

The Outcome

Workforce redesign
Evidence based workforce planning is key to the successful delivery of the Better Care Together strategy. WRaPT is being used as a tool to engage all relevant parties in collating clinical and workforce data to enable workforce planning scenario modelling to support the pathway redesign process.
