Creating a single stroke service for Bradford & Airedale
Updated: Mar 13, 2019
Greengage were asked by Bradford Teaching Hospitals and Airedale NHS Foundation Trusts to support them to achieve their commitment to develop a single stroke service for the whole area. Greengage worked with Clinicians and managers to identify the key challenges faced by the collaboration and designed a series of bespoke interventions to support the work.
“ The way Greengage work really supported clinicians to see past the many challenges and focus on solutions ”
"We have made an amazing amount of progress on the collaboration project in a short space of time. Using organisational development tools and methodologies, helped strengthen relationships to work collaboratively to achieve a single stroke service. Stroke performance (SNAAP) scores also improved due to using a collaborative approach to improvement. Personally I have learned a lot from Greengage and have valued their in-depth expertise in reaching points of agreement rather than points to disagree on. They have helped me understand the value of OD in helping build collaborative relationships and have come to the realisation that is part of the glue that makes a collaboration project succeed. The way Greengage work really supported clinicians to see past the many challenges and focus on solutions – what they can do rather than what they can’t do. This has given people confidence that we can make progress and unblock some of the most difficult issues."
