This programme used the People Powered Results 100 Day Challenge approach to mobilise and support frontline teams across multiple health and care economies to find ways to better manage the rise in demand for elective care.
We directly supported waves one and two of the development collaborative, supporting leaders and frontline teams in seven local areas. In wave one, Stockport, Frimley, Fylde Coast, and South Somerset tested ideas across three specialties: diabetes, musculoskeletal and gastroenterology. In wave two, teams from Dorset, Lincolnshire, Norfolk and Stockport focused on ideas relating to dermatology, diabetes and ophthalmology. Handbooks for both of these waves have now been published on the NHS England website.
The framework for experimentation for the 100 day challenges included:
Through implementing ideas such as MDT community masterclasses, patient held care plans and records, and enhancing advice and guidance between care settings, the teams were able to achieve results such as:
Waves three to five of the collaborative are being led by the NHS England specialty based transformation team who are also leading on disseminating the learning from the efforts. The final wave (five) is due to complete in Spring 2019.
