Establishing a PMO for transformational change in the NHS

The Trust provides excellent health care services across the towns of Warrington, Runcorn and Widnes and surrounding areas. It is responsible for an annual budget of around £210 million, manages over 4,100 staff and provides access to care for over 500,000 patients.

The NHS is undergoing significant change in the way it manages the delivery of services. At Warrington, the Trust Board launched a transformational change programme to review and improve all aspects of the way it works, including the delivery of IT services.

Margaret will explain how they have established a central Project Management Office in IT with strong, pragmatic processes to oversee the wide range of projects underway, underpinned by Bestoutcome’s PM3 tool, and will describe benefits this has brought, including significant improvements in Board reporting.
