54 delegates, drawn from across the health service disciplines, took part in a 9-5 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.
Since the mapping exercise was ‘floor-based’, participants were advised to “dress causally for the workshop. You may also want to bring along a cushion!”
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?
