LGA Care and Health Improvement Programme efficiency project
As part of the Care and Health Improvement Programme (CHIP) 2016/17 the LGA are launching an efficiency project that aims to help develop innovative, efficient and sustainable approaches in care and health services. The project, which will run to March 2017, will help councils develop their approaches to improving efficiency in care and health, creating experience and learning that the rest of the sector can draw on. The project focuses on areas identified by the sector as posing a systematic challenge that have the potential to yield efficiency savings, whilst not duplicating other support programmes already in place. These are:
1. Commissioning and market shaping
3. Managing demand for care and health services.
It will build on and further develop the learning from the successful Adult Social Care Efficiency programme (www.local.gov.uk/productivity) which ended last year.
Councils are now being invited to bid to participate in the efficiency project, further details can be found at www.local.gov.uk/chip. The deadline for bids is the Friday 26th February 2016.
