It’s supported by commissioners in Hampshire and Southampton with the aim of agreeing high level consistent commissioning priorities.
The project has three stages: a current state analysis, design workshops and then implementation.
The current state analysis is complete. Information has been collected from performance data, observations of the service, and RiO records to track patient journeys.
The second step - Design Workshops, which will determine what the service should be in the future - is also now complete. We ran two 5-day workshops w/c 21st and 28th January - and a wide range of stakeholders attended, including service users, carers, advocates, commissioners, local authorities and Trust staff.
The workshops used the information from the current state analysis and sought views on this, plus views on the purpose of learning disability health services, what are essential features in the future, and what is important to stakeholders in the future design of the service.
A summary was produced at the end of each day and posted on this page. Those who couldn't attend had the opportunity to see the summaries and offer their thoughts each day.
The third and final stage is implementation. A smaller 3-day workshop with senior staff from provider and commissioning organisations took place in late February 2019. It produced a plan for implementing a financially sustainable service which reflects the design features that were determined in stage two and takes into account the national and local priorities for developing outstanding specialist health services for people with a learning disability.
