Nottinghamshire County Council were initially selected as one of eight authorities to be involved in a systems leadership pilot project. The project revolved around how to get a MASH (Multi-agency safeguarding hub), involving many different parties across children’s and adults’ services, working effectively. Creating the MASH was seen as ambitious and challenging from the start, involving partners from NHS commissioners and providers, the police, the fire service, the probation service, education and adult and children’s social care. It was seen as an excellent example of partnership working, but was experiencing some difficulties in meeting targets and timescales, and it was therefore identified as an area where using systems leadership approaches could help achieve better outcomes. The partners acknowledged the problems that were arising and committed to solving any issues in an open and honest way, with a keen focus on building on early successes. This commitment across the board was crucial in order to make change possible across systems. The problems were initially identified in terms of barriers to information sharing and difficulties in meeting some aspects of information returns within agreed timescales. Ina short project between February and May 2013, OPM therefore worked with Nottinghamshire County Council and its partner agencies to help to explore the systems pressures that needed to be addressed, and to help find ways forward.
