Welcome to NHS South of England’s online catalogue of successful change programmes. In it you will find short summaries of existing and recent change programmes across the NHS South of England region, with directions on where to go for more information. We hope you will use it to get in touch with other people leading change to share inspiration, experience and expertise.
The summaries describe changes which are large-scale; apply across professional or organisational boundaries; and relate not only to systems and processes but also to culture and behaviour. They are all examples of change programmes that were successful, achieving what they set out to do – and more.
Most of these summaries formed part of a review, by Roffey Park Institute, of successful NHS change programmes across the region, commissioned in March 2012 by NHS South of England. Its purpose was to understand what makes change work; how leaders go about introducing change effectively; and what we can learn from successful programmes to help the NHS rise to the challenges of the unprecedented changes taking place across the service.
This review was part of a larger piece of work led by NHS South of England that aims to support the ongoing improvement of the healthcare system. The review report, containing 15 in-depth case studies, can be found at http://www.southofengland.nhs.
In order to select 15 case studies we looked at many more examples of successful change programmes. These 15 case studies together with a selection from our initial interviews have been used to build a summary of 35 change programmes in this catalogue. Our intention is to expand the web base to include more examples so that these can be used as a source of reference and information to inspire further service improvement. If you have any examples of successful change programmes you wish to share with us please complete the attached template: Improvement Science template for case studies and e-mail to Yvonnne.Frewin@ridgeway.nhs.uk
We hope you are inspired to join this community of interest on change in the NHS, and use it to deliver real and lasting benefit to patients.
