  • Whether you are in a leadership role or part of the team, this tutorial will give you a step by step guide to the change management process.

    This webinar will be particularly relevant to managers who are managing people in a changing environment often reducing staffing and/or costs but also with an effort to improve performance.

    It will focus on the people aspect of achieving change and how as a manager, change can be achieved with less anxiety and resistance and increased successful implementation.
  • The NHS Cost Recovery Team is leading work to improve systems for identifying and charging overseas visitors and migrants who use the NHS. This programme of work, though led by the Department, is being co produced with delivery partners in NHS England and the wider NHS, the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), the Home Office and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP).
    We aim to support and reinforce the principle of fairness by ensuring that everyone who can should contribute to the cost of the NHS.

    To support the recovery of costs from chargeable non-EEA visitors and migrants (i.e. patients who are charged directly) we will be introducing a new mechanism in April 2015 (subject to Parliament). It will share the risk of unpaid debt to provide a direct financial incentive to encourage trusts to invest in identification and cost recovery processes. This will deliver a major step change in behaviour and process.
  • Following on from the HFMA’s Mental Health Faculty Forum in November which focused on approaches for achieving financially and clinically sustainable services, we are delighted to announce this upcoming seminar which will continue the theme.

    • Partnership working: increased the scope and levels of sophistication of partnership working between people with lived experience and professional staff, increasing understanding of the importance of expertise by experience

    • Hidden Talents: for statutory staff within NHS Dorset who have lived experience and are involved in challenging stigma and looking at how people can use their experiences within their work

    • Lived experience mentors for psychiatrists: a pilot project where people who have accessed the service are coaching psychiatrists on how to work in more recovery orientated ways

    • Peer Specialists: continuing to develop peer specialist posts (people with lived experience working in NHS teams modelling recovery)

    • Recovery Education Centre (REC): offers co-produced and co-delivered sessions focusing on how to manage your own or support someone else's recovery. The REC has over 1600 students and has recorded impressive feedback

    • Personal Health Budget (PHB): the WaRP in partnership with the CCG are an NHS England demonstrator site exploring how PHBs can reduce inpatient admissions and improve personalisation of services.
