Imagine If...?! Programme
Over the last few months over have started the Imagine If programme in earnest with the four Early Implementer Sites - Boston, Gainsborough, Grantham and Lincoln.
During May/ June we have been in the Boston area and had over 80 people from over 15 different organisations coming together to rethink how mental health & wellbeing services work for people in the local area. We ran x3 sessions with partners from the Co-Production Group, Voluntary Sector, NHS, Primary Care, Police and Local Government and now have three teams working on their ideas around how to improve services. Led by frontline practitioners, the teams are:
Using a rapid testing approach, they are going to do the work in 30-day chunks -
- Days 0-30 is about baselining and collating the date, information, resources and support they need to get their ideas off the ground
- Days 31 - 60 are about piloting the idea in full, and then coming together to review and make any adjustments for the next testing phase
- Days 61 - 90 are about fine-tuning a pilot or it may be about starting again - because learning is a key part of this process
- Days 91 - 120 are the final phase where the teams will review and evaluate their ideas. If things are working well, they can start to embed the ideas and share things with the other areas.
We are really excited for the next few weeks too, because we will be finalising the teams in Gainsborough, Grantham and Lincoln..... so watch this space!!!
