We work with community providers to assist them in meeting the challenge of Community Services integration and performance improvement. Services we provide include:
Benchmarking of community services
Service re-design for integrated community services
Business case development
Development of quality indicators with clinicians to drive service improvement
As the research support team to the NHS Benchmarking Network, we deliver a benchmarking project covering 26 different community services including District Nursing, Specialist Nursing, Therapies, Health Visiting, School Nursing and Integrated Community Teams. The project provides comparable evidence on service access, activity, caseloads, clinical time profiles, workforce, finance, quality and outcomes and provides a unique data set for NHS community service providers not available from any other source.
