NHS Warrington & Halton Hospitals
Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust provides excellent health care services across the towns of Warrington, Runcorn and Widnes and surrounding areas. It is responsible for an annual budget of around £210 million, manages over 4,100 staff and provides access to care for over 500,000 patients.
The NHS is undergoing significant change in the way it manages the delivery of services. At Warrington, the Trust Board launched a transformational change programme to review and improve all aspects of the way it works, including the delivery of IT services.
They established a central Project Management Office in IT to support the transformation programme, and decided to implement a PMO support tool to underpin their work.
How did we help?
The Trust selected PM3 from Bestoutcome because of its ease of use and track-record in the NHS. Working closely with the PMO we have helped them ensure visibility and consistency of reporting across all the initiatives in their Transformation programme.
Benefits to Warrington and Halton Hospitals
The Project Management Office has established strong, pragmatic processes to oversee the wide range of projects underway, underpinned by PM3, and have seen significant improvements in overall governance and Board reporting.
