HEALTH services were given advice by a former advisor to the prime minister and president of the United States.
Professor Don Berwick, an international authority on healthcare quality and improvement, visited the headquarters of Fareham and Gosport Clinical Commissioning Group as part of his tour of Hampshire.
Accompanied by Professor Chris Ham, the chief executive of the King’s Fund, Prof Berwick visited Fort Southwick to see the projects the CCG has been doing.
During the visit, he heard how NHS England-funded Vanguard programmes are changing the way healthcare services are delivered to patients.
Maggie MacIsaac, chief executive of the Hampshire CCG Partnership, said: ‘We wanted to give Prof Berwick and Prof Ham a good understanding of some of the excellent work which is taking place to improve NHS patient services across south and north Hampshire.
‘This included examples of what we have delivered and how we have delivered it.
‘We also wanted to share some of the powerful case studies and stories from our clinical leads, workforce and communities who are improving and transforming patient services at a time of huge change and opportunity across the NHS.
‘It was a great opportunity for us to benefit from Prof Berwick’s experience, and listen to his insights on how best to take these projects forward, making the most of the opportunities available to us working across wider partnerships.’
