Learning from the phlebotomy service transformation process

In 2018 our community phlebotomy service transitioned from JPUHT to ECCH. This process encountered some difficulties and in some areas patients were temporarily affected by lack of access to phlebotomy. As a result the Great Yarmouth and Waveney CCG reviewed the transition in partnership with JPUHT and ECCH colleagues and produced a report, the intention being to learn from what happened and apply that learning to any relevant service developments in the future. The report has been shared with our Local Delivery Group and we would now like to make it available to your organisation.

Co-Production – How it’s working for us!

National Co-Production Week is here (From 2nd to 6th July) and we thought we would share with you our experience of co-producing our newsletters.

Not-for-profit organisations finding a new balance

The Charity Finance Group has launched the results of its Finance Counts 2016 report. A notable finding is that charities are struggling to generate income from public service agreements and contracts, with many charities making significant losses on contracts.

Appleseed Care Farm CASE STUDY

The Appleseed care farm has been set up in Wymondham to offer people with mental health and social care needs, suffering with anxiety and depression, job seekers, ex-offenders and those living in sheltered housing a chance to boost their health, happiness and well-being. Norfolk RCC helped with funding research and advice after the project almost stalled  at an early stage.

Greg Sadler from Appleseed explains “We knew which organisations we wanted to approach with funding applications but we were getting nowhere. South Norfolk Councillor Neil Ward put us in touch with Norfolk RCC and their input was invaluable in helping us frame our applications and presentations in a way that got us noticed. Without a doubt, the funding wouldn’t have happened without the RCC’s support.”

Marlingford Village Hall

Marlingford Village Hall approached Community Action Norfolk for support with accessing funding and developing their extension and refurbishment project.  Community Action Norfolk always operates a holistic approach to queries and identified some governance concerns that would be identified by potential funders. 

Wymondham Community Bookshop

Fearing the loss of the existing bookshop, which was run as a private business but was closing down, a group of local people wanted to take it over and run it as a social enterprise. The group got in contact with Community Action Norfolk and we reviewed the group’s business plan and funding options, providing advice and additional options for support. The group also valued our advice in setting up an appropriate legal structure for their new social enterprise.
