Sharing Insights

Below are some examples showing insights gained through WSP work:

WSP brought together a group of academics to develop a framework for thinking about the impact of technology on the workforce.  The round-table was prompted by the Topol review, which was published only days after our group met.  Read our blog here and download the thought-piece here.

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.

Peter has recently spoken at a conference sponsored by the Eastern and Peninsular CLAHRCs and the East of England AHSN entitled Realising a systems approach to healthcare design and delivery.  His talk focussed on strategic risks associated with workforce planning in General Practice.

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.

Delivering Improvement

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

WSP are proud to have supported the North East & North Cumbria ICS in their success in being highly commended at the 2020 HPMA award ceremony in the category of Innovation in HR.  You can see a little more about their use of the SWiPe framework to galvanise a system wide conversation about strategic workforce planning here.

We are working with a number of locations to understand and model the workforce transformation journey in Place, focussing on Primary Care Networks but extending this to the wider health and social care workforce.  The work is supported by a population health management approach and factors in service transformation priorities across the system.

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 focussed on the benefits of combining the Kent Integrated Dataset with the power of simulation using System Dynamics modelling.  A copy of an article recently published as part of the Association of Professional Healthcare Analysts (AphA) April 2018 e-newsletter is available here.

WSP are supporting the Local Government Association by contributing a relational assessment to their peer review programme.
