Inaugural techUK/NHS Transformation bi-monthly check-in a success

Last week saw the first joint session between techUK’s Health & Social Care programme and the NHS Transformation Directorate’s Adult Social Care team.

Run exclusively for techUK members, the session aimed to provide an informal setting in which to receive strategic and operational updates from the NHS Adult Social Care team on ongoing and future projects, plus details about opportunities for engagement or collaboration.

The session’s focus was the What Good Looks Like (WGLL) framework, a resource launched in August 2021 which describes to NHS leaders what good looks like at both a system and organisation level. It contains seven ‘success measures’ including ‘well led’, ‘ensure healthy foundations’, and ‘support people’.

After hearing from the NHS team about how they are adapting WGLL for use in social care, we were then joined by the Local Government Association, who talked us through their research and engagement work with Local Authorities.

You can learn more about the WGLL framework here.

The next bi-monthly check-in session, this time on ‘Digital skills for care’, will take place on Thursday 8 September from 2:00-3:00pm. Members can register to attend here.
