WSP have worked with clients to address strategic challenges using systems thinking and modelling in population health, service redesign and strategic workforce planning.

WSP are engaging actively with thought leaders, academics and those with responsibility for delivering change ‘on the ground’. This creates fertile ground for new and innovate solutions that have one foot in the realities of our complex and challenging health and care systems, and the other firmly planted in the aspirations of what we believe is possible. Below is a selection of the material that is emerging from this dialogue:

  • WSPs ‘discussion starter’ on frailty and complex care here. This was used to prime a round table discussion co-chaired by Dr David Paynton and Professor Terry Young in February 2014.
  • The communique that emerged from this round table discussion is available here.
  • We have also made comment on the recent publication on Population Level Commissioning from the DH YOC programme.
  • WSP developed and facilitated a programme of activities focussed on the modelling and simulation of population health needs at the Cumberland Initiative Festival of Evidence.

What follows are examples, and associated material and models, that have emerged from this dialogue over a number of years.
