NHS Forth Valley - Transforming Primary care
NHS Forth Valley
2018 - 2019
Working with East Central Hub-Co and NHS Forth Valley to understand the service and estate implications arising from a number of drivers for change impacting on primary care. Activities included developing an extensive stakeholder engagement approach to: assess the impact; quantify the capacity and seek to identify the investment priorities.
Our standardised approach ensured a successful outcome, and some of the key elements of this are outlined below.
Data Gathering & trends analysis
Understanding local, regional and national data and trends in primary care service usage
Quantifying impact of the trends to assess the level of service provision in primary care at branch, core, hub and cluster levels
We established investment priorities with rationale for immediate, 5 and 8 year planning horizons
