Prevention and Wellbeing Baseline Audit
Client: Manchester City Council Adult Social Care
Duration: 6 Months
CPC were commissioned to conduct a baseline audit of all prevention based services across Audit Social Care and Health. The current drive to invest in preventative and wellbeing services places significant pressures on existing budgets and it is often perceived that new monies must be available to support this new approach. In order to maximise the impact of these preventative services it is important to understand who currently benefits from them. If these services can be identified and better coordinated then the opportunity for delivering better outcomes at a lower cost becomes a real opportunity.
CPC were tasked with the following:
- Developing a prevention framework within which the preventative services of both health and social care could be jointly examined
- Use of the framework to collect, examine and validate over 400 preventative services
- Analysis of the preventative services to identify areas of service gaps or duplication
This work provided a baseline analysis of preventative service provision within the area, the benefits include:
- Creation of an bespoke and innovative outcome framework against which both social care and health preventative services can be mapped so that spending can be coordinated and their contribution to strategic objectives can be traced.
- Identified overlaps and gaps of service provision so that future work and redesign of services can be undertaken.
- Identified opportunities for improvement in the coordination and management of prevention and wellbeing based services across partner agencies. This will facilitate increased efficiency and take-up of provision.
- Developed a toolkit and methodology to enable Manchester City Council and NHS Manchester to replicate the process in the future, ensuring that the work is sustainable and can be easily replicated and/or updated without external assistance.
