Detailed Programme Information

Working with the South West Peninsula Applied Research Collaborative (PenARC) to undertake learning and evaluation building on what the system is delivering: 

Community Assessment and Treatment Units (CATUs) 

The South West AHSN and PenARC are working in collaboration with the CATUs in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly’s rural and coastal communities, and the wider health system in the South West in order to:  

  • Co-produce an evaluation framework to support the development and dissemination of Rapid Insight as well as clear summative findings. 
  • Generate and feedback rapid insights to guide service decision-making about implementation and delivery, build service quality and resilience and better understand the context and success factors that make a successful and spread-ready model. 
  • Develop an accessible ‘Rapid Insights Guide’ that codifies the learning from the foundation of the CATUs and provides actionable guidance and resources for Integrated Care Systems. 

This project is part of the NHS Insights Prioritisation Programme (NIPP).  

Optimising Remote Consultation in Elective Recovery (ORCER) 

This project aims to capture beneficial changes in secondary care remote consulting. Guidance is being developed at the organisational and system level, to support optimising the systems underpinning remote consultation in outpatients, framed around a ‘maturity tool’ that will support systems across a range of domains to ensure they have created the optimal environment for the use of remote consulting. 

This is a joint initiative with West of England AHSN, South West Peninsula Applied Research Collaborative (PenARC) and Applied Research Collaborative West (ARC West) to capture innovations in health and care services initiated or accelerated as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

If you have an evaluation project in mind that you are looking to progress or you are interested in arranging bespoke training for your organisation, please contact Lynnette Chapman.
