NHS Operating Game: Integrated health and social care - London

The public sector is facing unprecedented challenges in times of increasing demand for health and social care services. NHS bodies are being asked to work together with local authorities in Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) to improve the patient experience and provide services more efficiently and effectively whilst saving money.

After years of working as independent organisations working to meet their own objectives, one of the main challenges faced by STPs is understanding the impact decisions made by one organisation is having on the whole health and social care system.

This game allows participants to understand the role of different organisations in the system, both as individual organisations and as a whole health economy. Unlike real life, this game provides the opportunity for participants to see what happens if different decisions are made. Participants are introduced to the way that money flows around the NHS and the wider public sector. It also looks at how operational decisions can affect the financial position of an organisation as well as its quality rating.

Each team will have four players who will each represent a body in the healthcare economy, a CCG, acute trust, mental health trust, community trust and a local authority.
