NHS efficiency map: Engaging staff in challenging processes
Salisbury NHS Foundation Trust has been an FT since 2006 and has a strong record of delivering savings. Salisbury’s Save 7 programme is designed to involve all staff in change, giving them the chance to be involved in exciting and innovative change projects that simultaneously deliver fnancial savings, cultural change and service improvement. The aim is to have champions of the project at every level within the trust. Staff are said to have ‘bought into’ the project when they recognise concrete benefts that aren’t purely about saving money but also maintain or improve the quality of care for patients and make it easier for them to do so.
