Caring Together Induction Pack: now available online

Caring Together Eastern CheshireThe new Caring Together Induction Pack is now available online.

The intention is to promote the pack to all new starters with health and social care organisations commissioning or providing services for the people of Eastern Cheshire. Organisations include third sector partners and providers of social housing.

For the avoidance of doubt, the pack is not relevant to employees involved exclusively in commissioning or providing services outside Eastern Cheshire. This pack is to be made available with immediate effect to new recruits, either salaried or voluntary.

At the end of every third month, a member of the Caring Together team will send managers a link to a brief online survey for new recruits to complete. This will enable them to measure awareness of the pack and the extent to which it is achieving its aim of improving understanding of Caring Together. Consultees will have the option to remain anonymous as the purpose of the survey is not to test individuals’ knowledge or pay attention to people who don’t answer all the questions correctly!

While the principal aim of the survey is to ensure that new starters are introduced to Caring Together as soon as practicable, the pack can also be shared with colleagues more widely. Reference copies of the pack are also available in the Staff Library (Top Floor, New Alderley House).

Many thanks to all in anticipation of your support for this important initiative to promote understanding of – and engagement in – our transformation programme.

Caring Together – initial engagement ends soon

Extract from Staff Matters

The initial engagement process for Caring Together finishes on Wednesday (April 30th).  It is vital that you have your say, both as a trust employee and as a user of local healthcare.

Caring Together is an alliance of all of the area’s health and social care providers. It is working to create a joined-up service across the whole of Eastern Cheshire, with the aim of improving everyone’s wellbeing.

But before any changes are proposed or made, people’s views and aspirations for health and social care are being sought. More information can be found:
