February 2021 - Optimisation Workshops Round 3 

Following the successful round 2, we are keeping up the pace with the next round of locality-based optimisation workshops. A number of the priority unmet demand list requirements were fulfilled from across the county in round 2. This is really good news and it is certainly helping to make the best use of capacity in the market at the moment.  We are now adapting  the approach slightly in each locality. – Please see the next dates and details at the Optimisation Workshop information webpage

Next Locality Provider Forums 

We are keen to hold more Locality Provider Forums soon to capture more of your views.  This is so that we can continue forming and shaping the wider agenda. This is for each locality provider and commissioning partnership.   

Preliminary dates for the next Forums will be announced shortly.
