Sharing Insights

Below are some examples showing insights gained through WSP work:

WSP recently shared their work with Imperial College Health Partners at a ‘Lunch and Learn’ session.  We covered population health modelling, workforce modelling, relational thinking, modelling for service transformation and a lot more in an hour and a half – you can download the material here.

Peter was recently invited to give a talk at the Systems and Complexity in Organisations (SCiO) with a focus on System Dynamics Modelling – you can download the material here.

Relationships in an integrated Health and Social Care system – WSP and Relationships Foundation have contributed to developing and informing the Care Quality Commission’s insight that ‘Without good relationships and a shared, agreed vision between system partners, achieving positive outcomes for people who use services, their families and carers is significantly compromised’. Read here for the CQC 'Beyond barriers' report.

What does a successful modelling and simulation project look like?  Read here for a recent article in the Journal of Operational Research for the answers.

Thinking about relationships in health - a talk given at the Relational Thinking Network Conference.

Delivering Improvement

Below are listed some of the latest projects we are working on with our clients:

WSP are supporting the Nottinghamshire and Derbyshire ICS/STP footprints to develop a strategic approach to integrated workforce planning at a system level. A recent presentation given to the East Midlands Association of Professional Healthcare Analysts (AphA) group illustrates the approach.

WSP are supporting CCGs in Kent to develop their Demand and Capacity work using their Local Care System Dynamics model. An example of an application of the modelling tool for Dartford, Gravesham and Swanley CCG can be viewed here.

WSP is involved in developing a Community of Practice around capacity planning for the Kent and Medway STP.  A copy of an article recently published as part of the Association of Professional Healthcare Analysts (AphA) April 2018 e-newsletter is available here.

Calibrating a simulation tool for the general practice workforce in the context of the GPFV workforce plans and wider STP goals.

Building a whole population cohort model for Kent that will inform key demand drivers for STP planning.

Develop an evaluation framework for the National Council for Palliative Care 'Building on the Best' Programme for end of life care in hospital settings.
