Successful leadership of a change programme Us & Our Behaviours Momentum Leadership Qualities Tame & Wicked Problems & Clumsy Solutions
Our Vision “A patient centred and clinically driven local NHS responsive to the needs of local people, delivering the best quality care available in an integrated and efficient way, in first rate facilities as close to home as possible by well trained professionals using state of the art knowledge and equipment.” Three elements to the Programme: Service Transformation and the redesign of care pathways, New community based facilities to deliver care closer to home, New hospital to replace the existing two in Hartlepool and Stockton.
Momentum is a massive change management programme: 20% reduction in general & acute beds (124) beds 18% reduction in average length of stay (0.8 days for emergencies) 10% reduction in acute based staff (400 wte) Fewer operating theatres and consultation rooms 40% of A&E attendances in town centre minor injury units (40,000 patients) 40% of all outpatient appointments in community locations (160,000 appointments) 15% of elective procedures in community locations (6,000 procedures)
Pre-requisites for successful change management Accepted need to change A vision / alternative state Change agents Sponsorship from above Scale and pace of change An integrated transition programme A symbolic end to the status quo A plan for likely resistance Constant advocacy A locally owned benefits plan (Grint, 2008)
