From April 2016 we will be working closely with the NHS Leadership Academy on our groundbreaking Interchange programme launched late in 2015.

North West Employers have always had a long standing relationship with the Leadership Academy and this is just one more collaborative working project to extend the reach of the Interchange programme to the North West region and beyond.

Interchange has the power to contribute to the region’s collective thinking about how we might tackle the challenges of system- wide public services reform, such as integrating health and care in the broader context of wellbeing, growth and devolution.

“We have worked in partnership with North West Employers since 2008 on a number of cross sector initiatives. This latest venture – Interchange – is very exciting and has the potential to link up lots of leaders, enhancing cross sector relationships, enabling increased understanding and inclusive ways of working.” Deborah Davis – Director at NHS NW Leadership Academy

Social Prescribing at a Glance

Social Prescribing at a Glance

Social prescribing is a means of enabling primary care services to refer patients with social, emotional. or practical needs to a range of local, non-clinical. services, often provided by the voluntary and community sector.

This report is intended as an introductory online resource to encourage wider understanding and exploration of the benefits of social prescribing to promote wellbeing. It is the result of a regional scoping exercise supported by Health Education England (HEE) working across the North West during 2015.

The document has been designed to promote consideration of the necessary issues to better understand and harness social prescribing assets. HEE hope it will help increase awareness of the type of social prescribing activity being delivered across a range of sectors, and will help encourage more collaborative action in order to promote individual and community wellbeing.

The North West Randomised Coffee Trial

The North West Randomised Coffee Trial

On April 13 2016 we are going to be facilitating a randomised coffee trial across the North West to help to connect leaders across sectors and professions. We hope that by doing this people will make lasting connections that will help to spread improvement and innovation.

What is a randomised coffee trial?
A RCT is fancy name for something that is incredibly simple. Basically, it’s a way of randomly matching people to come together for a coffee (face-to-face or over the phone) to chat about whatever they want.

The original idea was inspired by Pedra Medina and developed further by Michael Soto and John Kipsbury from Nesta in 2013. Nesta is an innovation charity with an ambition to help people and organisations bring great ideas to life.

What impact can it have? According to NESTA the benefits include the following:
Provides legitimacy to chat to people about things that aren’t directly work related. Although every time there have been direct beneficial impacts on various projects and programmes.

Where can I find out more about randomised coffee trials?
