Appreciative Leadership Development Programme

In September 2010, Lancashire Care NHS Foundation Trust (LCFT) commissioned an innovative Appreciative Leadership programme to underpin an organisation-wide culture change programme. Fiona MacNeill Associates (FMA), an independent people development consultancy, was appointed to deliver the programme and the Trust ran a very successful pilot programme involving 50 delegates, from a range of different services, clinical and non-clinical roles and pay bands, prior to rolling out the programme across the Trust.

Professional Mental Health Network

In 2009 a professional mental health network was set up for the Blackburn with Darwen area, which is very unique in that it is exclusively for mental health professionals from across all sectors, and has a specialism around BME. It allows different organisations to share information, combine resources and undertake joint projects to improve signposting to mental health and mainstream services and has approximately 280 members who can drop in an out as necessary. 

Redeployment of Staff Affected by Service Reconfiguration

Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust recently embarked upon widespread service reconfiguration in line with regional initiatives, which led to the merger and closure of services at various sites across the Trust. As a result this redeployment  programme was launched to place all displaced employees into alternative substantive posts. This allowed 882 employees to be redeployed within the Trust, which saved circa £56,000 per person in redundancy costs.
