UNLOCKING NURSING POTENTIAL

Inefficient e-rostering meant one NHS Trust relied heavily on nursing agency support which in turn meant high agency costs, low stability, poor efficiency and a detrimental impact on nurse wellbeing.

90 leaders (band 5 to Chief Nurse level) undertook 30, 60 & 90-day improvement challenges using our solution focused methodology and practical problem solving toolkit. The results were fantastic!

  • A collective mindset shift in just 30 days
  • £758,000 agency cost savings achieved in 90 days
  • Key clinical indicators turned from red to green

THINKING DIFFERENTLY

A further £9.9m annual cost savings were required. The challenge for the Finance Director was daunting based on recalled memories. Creative solutions were needed.

An internal ThinkOn® master coach was supported to design and facilitate a series of cost saving innovation workshops. These proved to be a great success!

  • Hundreds of possibilities were created
  • £11.6m cost savings were realised
  • Over 20 additional ideas were identified for subsequent years

CHANGING CULTURE ONE CONVERSATION AT A TIME

Unproductive meetings and ineffective 1:1 conversations is a common cultural problem for many NHS Trusts. Cultural transformation requires a shift in mindsets (not just processes) to embed a new way of thinking.

One Trust shifted their culture by developing 40 ThinkOn® ‘Master Coaches’ to improve and remove their meetings and conversations using a proven 12-point implementation plan. This led to:

  • More purposeful and productive conversations
  • Enhanced  continuous improvement activities
  • A practical problem solving toolkit being widely shared

SECURING £1.5 MILLION IN FUNDING

Too many papers at Exec. meetings and not enough time to read or discuss them? Decisions need to be made.

But how do you help the team to understand the key issues in an efficient way and engage them in finding the right answer?

The solution involved replacing a 35-page discussion document with just 6 carefully crafted, high quality questions and engaging the team to think differently. This resulted in identifying an additional £1.5m funding.
