Tasked with supporting the development of a regional Joint Improvement Partnership (JIP), CSIP and other regional partners commissioned HSMC to explore perceptions of existing improvement support and a practical mechanism for co-ordinating this activity at regional level.
HSMC carried out interviews with Directors of Adult Social Services across the region and with representatives of key regional and national improvement agencies, working with CSIP and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services to develop a proposed structure for co-ordinating regional improvement activity.
HSMC's recommendations were accepted by all relevant regional stakeholders and now form the basis of the new JI.
