NW ADASS – new publications
NW ADASS have produced 3 new publications which highlight the priorities and work programme for 2017. Please use the links below for more information.
We are pleased to introduce the first comprehensive NW ADASS Sector Led Improvement Report – ‘State of the North West’ which collates all our learning and review activity and sets out the SLI challenge for NW ADASS in 2017.
Our commitment in 2016 was to develop a more flexible and dynamic sector led improvement programme and we have worked hard with our members to refine our approach, review methodology and governance structures which in turn have strengthened our grip on the continuous improvement challenge across adult social care.
We have triangulated information, data and intelligence from a variety of sources and this has been key in understanding not only the risks in the system and areas for improvement, but also the areas of good practice, innovation and what works.
NW ADASS Work Plan 2017 : The purpose of this work plan is to provide a single document that sets out the North West regional priorities for 2017 and how regional resources will support NW ADASS improve the performance of the 23 local authority adult social care services.
NW ADASS recognises the sector faces a series of unprecedented challenges, some of which can be addressed locally and within the short-medium term and others which can only be dealt with at regional and/or national level and may require a long-term strategy.

New NHS Improvement and Leadership Framework
This new document presents the first version of an evidence-based national framework to guide action on improvement skill-building, leadership development and talent management in NHS-funded services. The purpose of the framework is to equip and encourage people in NHS-funded roles to deliver continuous improvement in local health and care systems and gain pride and joy from their work. The framework applies to everyone in NHS-funded roles in all professions and skill areas, clinical and otherwise.
The document is directed primarily at the senior management teams of all organisations and systems that do NHS-funded work – from the smallest GP partnerships to the largest national organisations – to inform their decisions on developing people. It will be updated regularly, using feedback from people testing the framework.
A full copy of the framework is available here
