What the Idea was: Development of Public Service arrangements with Herefordshire Council.
Results achieved: Herefordshire is the first place in the country to have a Chief Executive leading both the Council and the Primary Care Trust. Chris Bull Joined Herefordshire in December 2007 and his first major task was to establish a new integrated management team and joint organisational structure, which was determined in March 2008. The new structure is enabling much closer and effective partnership working in order to improve public services and achieve greater efficiency.
Further details of the Working in Partnership can be found in Herefordshire Primary Care Trust’s Annual Report and Accounts 2007/2008 on page 12. A link to this document is below.
