to tell the story of PiP - 18 years of work for children and young people...and their health
A meeting of local paediatric service leaders called by Andy Spencer, Angela Hopper (from the then North Staffordshire NHS Hospitals Trust), and Alice Casey and Colin Melville (from the then Mid-Staffordshire Hospitals NHS Trust)
A second meeting of the founder members of the Partnership at which PiP's statement of purpose and objectives were defined
mapping services, activity flows between the hospitals
Eleven provider Trusts signed up to the Partnership's statement of purpose and objectives, the proposed constitution of the Partnership (Steering Group, appointed Chair and Partnership Officers and Advisors), and subscription rates.
Event to clarify priorities for inclusion in work plan and to secure commitment from members to resource this through subscriptions
54 delegates, drawn from across the health service disciplines, took part in a workshop which used a 'gaming' process to review the pattern of service provision across the Partnership area and to ask how it might be managed against the service priorities identified by the Partnership over a 5 year period. Using consultant medical posts as a proxy for services, it asked what if there were a modest increase in services, and what if there was a more significant expansion of services? Where would that resource be most productively placed and why?
Meeting to report on the case for partnership between paediatric services and to seek a mandate for the programme of collaborative work proposed.
Conference attended by provider and commissioner representatives from the Partnership area and beyond.
