Thank you to everyone who completed the Collaborate survey last week. There were lots of positive, encouraging comments as well as some constructive feedback about how, going forward, Collaborate can better support you in your leadership development. As the survey was anonymous, we cannot directly respond to specific comments, but if you would like to get in touch to discuss any particular issues, please call Sara on 07725 555 030.
Many of you found value connecting with others face-to-face either at the Spring Festival or the regional Collaborate Connect meetings. Plans are in place for new events across the country in the new year. In the meantime, new digital platforms are being set up to support discussion around specific issues that affect you in your leadership role. Although lots of issues have been raised in the NHS Collaborate WhatsApp group, these can be difficult to explore in depth. A new Collaborate Connect Loomio group has been set up to help separate out different topics and enable more focused – and hopefully more valuable – discussion.
If you’ve never used Loomio before, it’s very easy to get the hang of. Based on the results of the survey, three threads have already been set up, to focus discussion around workforce, ACO/ACS development, and primary care homes. If there is another topic that you would like to add, all you have to do is select ‘New Thread’. Hopefully this will help facilitate more meaningful and impactful discussion around the issues or problems that really speak to you.
