Dr Ross Millar from HSMC and Sarah Morgan from Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust presented findings from their NIHR funded research into inter-organisational partnering as an approach to performance improvement.

Their presentation contributed to a HSRUK interactive workshop exploring different approaches to understanding failure and turnaround in NHS provider organisations. The workshop was chaired by Professor Naomi Fulop (University College London) and included two other presentations from Professor Kieran Walshe (University of Manchester) examining failure and turnaround of NHS providers from a capability perspective; and Dr Jean Ledger (University College London) and Chris Sherlaw-Johnson (Nuffield Trust) examining the impact of improvement interventions for NHS providers in Special Measures

The session aimed to further knowledge and understanding about this key area of policy and practice, raising important questions and debates about current and future approaches to performance improvement across the healthcare provider sector.
