Engaged Membership

Ashridge has been working with Calderdale and Greater Huddersfield CCGs to examine the notion of membership and good working practices within and outside the NHS to nurture membership among prime stakeholders. Development of a vibrant and engaged membership is critical to the success of a clinical commissioning group. It is, however, an issue that tends to be low on the agenda for many CCGs, who are coping with a multitude of other, pressing challenges.

In the article, the authors detail a model and toolkit that CCGs can use as a structure for future development.

Aligning Demand & Supply

Local authorities (LAs) face a number of challenges over the next few years, including establishing new ways of working and, as leaders of their communities, ensuring that their members and officers have the capacity and skills to work within their own organisations and across others. This report explores the current engagement between LAs, training providers and brokers and makes five key recommendations as to how these groups might work together more effectively in the future.
