Engaging a diverse community in service Improvement programmes

 

Engaging a diverse community in service Improvement programmes

NHSCSI is successful in enabling the voice of a diverse community of stakeholders in influencing major programmes of work. Here is an example.

If you would like to discuss engaging a diverse community of stakeholders in any programme of work, please contact or

1. Those of you who input to the work on the ‘principles and expectations for good rehabilitation services’ in 2014 will be pleased to know that NHS England now intends to incorporate these into an interactive tool aimed at supporting the commissioning of good rehabilitation services

2. The Rehabilitation Delivery Board established by NHS England has agreed that two priorities for future work are:

a. Long term conditions

b. Rehabilitation to support people to return to work or remain in work

3. The Board is establishing working groups to concentrate on:

• Commissioning levers and incentives

• Commissioning guidance

• Rehabilitation for economic growth

• Children and young people’s rehabilitation services

• Workforce

• 2015 National Rehabilitation Conference.

4. Four Regional Leads have been appointed to focus on the adoption and dissemination of good practice and to support the development of local networks and initiatives

5. There will be a National Rehabilitation Conference on 31st March 2015

6. Those of you who have enquired about children and young people’s rehabilitation services will be excited by the widening of the programme to include a scoping project to review current service provision and establish if further work is needed.

 

How the IRS Community of Practice will support this expanded programme

The NHS Clinical Soft Intelligence Service (NHSCSI) is delighted to continue to support this programme; promoting discussion and debate.  The IRS Community of Practice (COP) currently has 395 participants representing clinicians, health and care commissioners, provider organisations, academics and education services.  The COP will continue to enable participants to share information about services and practice, to ask questions and to post examples of innovative service redesign or development through:

  • Its online forum currently hosted on NHS Networks which is available to anyone by logging in at ‘NHS networks’.
  • four webinars that will offer learning and an opportunity to interact and discuss ideas in a live format
  • Contacting us directly at the IRSCOP. See details below

What you can do to participate in the programme:

Anyone can access and participate in the online forum as above.  Over the coming weeks we will be publicising the forthcoming webinars, regional events and the national conference linked to this programme.  We will also be inviting you to:

  • share local experiences of the issues related to service improvement in rehabilitation services
  • provide case studies to illustrate what is happening locally
  • link with colleagues who have an interest in rehabilitation service for children and young people, whatever sector they may work in e.g. health and social care, education, or the voluntary sector.

All information will be posted on the online forum, however if you wish to receive information emailed to you directly you can choose two levels of contact:

  1. You can become a ‘named contact for IRS’, enabling us to email you directly with news and information and giving us permission to share your contact details with NHS England and other related work programmes so that they may contact you directly as someone with a local interest in IRS.  If you would like to become a named local contact, please email Katherine Andrews at katherine.andrews@nhs-commissioning.net  .  Please title your email ‘Named contact for IRS’, providing your name, role, organisation, email and telephone contacts and indicating whether your interest is in the North/South/Midlands and East/London region or national.  For data protection, only contact details provided under the heading ‘Named contact for IRS’ will be included in the database of named local IRS contact.
  2. You can become a ‘general contact for IRS’ enabling us to email you directly with news and information, but your contact details will not be shared with NHS England or other related work programmes.  If you would like to become a general contact, please email Katherine Andrews at katherine.andrews@nhs-commissioning.netPlease title your email ‘General contact for IRS’, providing your name, role, organisation, email and telephone contacts and indicating whether your interest is in the North/South/Midlands and East/London region or national.  For data protection, contact details provided under the heading ‘General contact for IRS’ will be included in a database of contacts used only by the NHSCSI team.

If you have already given us your permission to share your contact details with NHS England, we will pass your details on to the relevant regional lead to support the development of regional networks.
