When Transformation Leader, Liz Eckert was grappling with the challenge on how to measure need, ahead of making recommendations on where to position urgent treatment services for a West Country CCG, she needed information quickly.

Having previously used Practicus to engage interims in the past, she decided to try out one of the other services offered, ‘Ask the Community’.

The question she needed answering was, did anyone have any way of putting together a model of what the true need of urgent emergency care is alongside primary care rather than just the consumption of services.

What followed was a reach out to the Practicus NHS Community to see what hindsight could support Liz’s foresight.

The contributions from the Practicus NHS Community came in thick and fast and were compiled into a report for Liz which she used as supporting evidence in her proposition to the CCG.
