Future Fit Transformation

Our Trust has undergone a transformation programme to move from managing operational service delivery through a business stream model to a borough-based structure for Halton, Knowsley, St Helens, Warrington and Wigan.

This will enable us to ensure our services, the care we deliver and our organisation is fit for the future and responsive to the needs of the communities we serve. Our services will be better aligned to locally provided services; they will embrace the 6Cs and be caring, responsive, effective, well-led and safe.

We have called this programme of change Future Fit Transformation.

Progress to date

The programme has been managed in two phases. Phase one saw the borough-based management and leadership structure formally come into operation in November 2015.

Phase two was completed in April 2016 and has seen the following:

  • Alignment of teams with boroughs, providing a standardised approach and centralised overview of borough working
  • Development of borough identities, leadership, strategies and reporting mechanisms
  • Development of clinical network work plans, streamlining processes and enabling clinical cohesiveness
  • Streamlining of access routes
  • Development of clear accountability framework for each borough
  • Alignment with borough partners and commissioners
The Future Fit transformation programme is now complete and ongoing activities are now part of how we deliver our services, continually improving to serve our communities.

We are delighted to have been able to successfully achieve the new structure while maintaining our high standards of service delivery which is testament to the commitment of our staff and support of our partners.

Clinical networks

Alongside the borough restructure, we have developed seven speciality-specific clinical networks based on the success of this approach in the wider, external health and social care landscape.
