All NHS organisations continue to face change. The newly published NHS long- term plan has emphasised the need to accelerate the development of integrated care systems, changing the way services are commissioned and delivered in future. Those organisations that prepare for change will be in a position not only to survive it but to get the best possible outcomes for their populations.
Change happens in everything we do. Some changes work while others can hit barriers that could have been avoided.
This session 28 March in Birmingham, 6 June in Manchester and 10 July in London is designed to equip you to become a capable agent of change, increase your resilience and show you how to improve your chances of getting the best possible outcomes. The course will help you understand how you and other members of your team respond to change. It will also illustrate how the process of change can be a positive and empowering experience. Our trainers use a variety of learning methods including open discussion, practical application of established tools and techniques and group exercises. Participants are encouraged to bring their examples of recent or imminent change to review on the day.
The CCG 360° stakeholder survey 2018/19 is currently being conducted by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England and will close on 22 February 2019. The survey provides valuable feedback and learning opportunities for CCGs, supporting them to strengthen their work with stakeholders and system partners to improve services and health outcomes for their local populations. It directly contributes to the annual assessment of CCGs under the CCG improvement and assessment framework. CCG survey leads are urged to encourage their stakeholders to complete the survey, to maximise response rates, where appropriate explaining how they have used previous survey findings for improvement purposes.
NHS England has published draft CCG allocations for 2019/20 to 2023/24. The allocations, together with an explanatory note and tool show a breakdown of the changes to target allocations. NHS England is running workshops for CCGs to explain the changes and answer any questions in Leeds on Thursday 24 January in London on Tuesday 29 January. There will also be a webinar in the afternoon of Wednesday 23 January.
NHS England has issued guidance on the patient and community engagement indicator, part of the CCG improvement and assessment framework. A new process requires CCGs to submit a completed template by 8 March 2019. Further information is available in webinars and by contacting email@example.com.
