2016/17 Round-up & 2017/18 News Update

We are pleased to announce that you can now download the NHS Benchmarking Network’s 2016/17 work programme report, together with the Network’s 2017/18 provider or commissioner brochure outlining project topics to be included in the work programme this year.

Member organisations now have received outputs from all the Network’s 2016/17 projects. Outputs include online and desktop toolkits, national reports and good practice compendiums, on a wide range of topics. In addition, for the first time in 2016/17, bespoke reports have been produced for all Network projects, providing summarised findings for each participating organisation. Over the last 12 months, Network membership has remained strong with coverage across the four UK countries. New project developments have been made to better support our members with identifying key areas for service improvement and to drive organisational learning and best practice.

Our 2017/18 work programme will continue to support commissioner and provider members in England to deliver the key targets set within the NHS Planning Guidance and Sustainability and Transformation Plans and, along with the rest of the four UK home countries, to identify opportunities for service improvement and efficiency savings.

Registration for the 2017/18 work programme projects is open online via the members' area. To maximise the benefits membership, please check whether your organisation is a member, if so, encourage all relevant colleagues to login to the Network members’ area for access to information updates, project registration, online tools and reports and free networking events.

If you have any questions about the 2017/18 work programme, or require a login, please contact Lindsey Ashley at lindsey.ashley@nhs.net or call 0161 266 1997.

Thank you for your support.
