Helping health and care services across Cheshire and Merseyside to plan five-year programme of improvements

MLCSU are proud to have supported Cheshire and Merseyside Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) with development of their five-year strategy.

Background

The CSU’s Improvement Unit was able to respond at speed to the sustainability and transformation plan (STP) partnership’s call for help in producing their five-year strategy.  As a developing STP, the partnership needed an extra pair of hands which could be dedicated to ensuring the tight deadlines were met for engaging with stakeholders to develop a robust five-year strategy by the submission deadline.

The Improvement Unit provided an experienced Improvement Manager on site three days a week for 12 weeks to co-ordinate a programme of work to secure delivery of the five-year strategy and oversee the delivery of actions.

Action

  • We provided experienced practical support, which was embedded on site with the client
  • We assisted with the development of a detailed project plan, risk register and issues log, which were owned and maintained by us
  • We provided stakeholder analysis
  • We engaged with all of the partners
  • We coordinated the development of strategy content,  incorporating new content  and maintaining version control and audit trail of changes
  • We responded to feedback from the regulator, Place and Programme Leads
  • We gave full secretariat and facilitation support to key workshops and meetings to develop the five-year strategy from the bottom up with Place and Programme leads
  • We produced update reports for key meetings.

Impact

This support proved invaluable to the STP and the contract was extended for a further four months to support the operational planning round and assist with preparations for mobilising delivery of year one of their plan.
