Workforce Re-Profiling and Modelling: Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trusthypedmarketing2019-03-07T16:01:51+00:00
Attain was commissioned by Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust to help them understand their workforce and assist them to improve productivity and generate financial savings.
The project had two main work streams:
A qualitative review and re-profiling of the current workforce, to help the Trust find greater economies and efficiencies including optimising the Trust’s IMS Maxims implementation
A quantitative workforce model to help understand the impact of a range of initiatives
What we did
We provided the following support:
We assigned a lead to each Acute workforce area to engage key stakeholders in the corporate, administrative and clinical functions
Focusing on the directorate leads, we utilised available evidence around schemes that had worked in other areas at similar sites and in similar health economies
Modelled a workforce baseline: The model was built using the available local data, matched at a speciality level, in Excel, to allow an activity driven model to be created that would allow the Trust to understand the workforce need
Our results included;
We identified schemes for greater economies and efficiencies in the workforce
We identified benefits through better implementation of the IMS Maxims and ways to standardise approaches and data collection
Provided performance evidence to press for system wide changes to reduce demand rather than reconfiguring their staff
Developed a workforce model, allowing the Trust to calculate the workforce need at a speciality level and easily adjust activity levels.
