The Problem

Lewisham Greenwich NHS Trust needs to deliver more sustainable improvement programmes in order to remove the underlying deficit, ensuring local services can access investment funding required to provide high-quality care for every patient, every day.

The Challenge

How might we identify areas of unwarranted variations so that we can drive improvements in productivity and efficiency in the delivery of better clinical outcomes for our patients.

The Outputs

▪ Increased uptake on MH portal users
▪ Better alignment of internal data with MH (e.g. divisional performance reviews)
▪ Better alignment of internal practices e.g. business case development, with benchmarking data every day.

The Outcomes

The team has become SME of the portal and representative for the Trust. Individuals were able to develop better understanding of the portal and alignment with internal data platforms such as PLICs and Business Intelligence. The team was asked to share learnings at the Model health system ambassador forum in June.
