Co-ordinated delivery of a fully costed clinical model and complex business case across system partners to secure funding from NHSE to improve care pathways for Learning Disability and Autism.
An urgent comprehensive, robust, and regionally co-ordinated business case was needed to secure £40.5m funding from NHSE. It would be allocated over two years to increase capacity for non-forensic Learning Disability and Autism (LDandA) services across the South West.
The funding was vital for the South West Provider Collaborative (SWPC), a partnership of five NHS organisations, three independent sector organisations and a community interest company working together to improve care pathways for people needing specialised mental healthcare in the South West region.
What we did
Our central delivery function for the programme coordinated the contributions and oversight of multiple providers, ICBs, and other system partners.
We provided ‘independent’ financial advice and guidance to develop a consistent set of baseline costs/assumptions and a fully costed clinical model.
We ensured the programme had sufficient pace and momentum, visibility of progress, external critical review, and regional alignment to deliver a successful strategy and business case on time and on budget.

Data driven decision making
A strong ‘battle rhythm’ was established and maintained to deliver the complex business case across system partners. SWPC considered our central coordination to be beneficial in securing the funding to improve care pathways.
As a flexible and 'neutral broker' we ensured clinical and financial models were developed that met local requirements while also being consistent and aligned at regional level.
