What we were asked to do:
We used a critical reflection approach to support the development of a Coproduction Framework for Lambeth Together aimed at defining how coproduction could be embedded in the Local Care Network delivery alliances. This was a borough-wide project with a scope that crossed many elements of the health and social care sector including the Local Authority, health and voluntary and community-based organisations.
What we did:
As part of this project we undertook:
• a review of engagement, codesign and coproduction activities and outcomes already in place in Lambeth and analysis of these activities against the definition and principles of coproduction in use by Lambeth Together
• interviews with senior leaders and key people to understand their commitment and understanding of coproduction as defined by Lambeth Together and the principles, and any barriers that exist for them
• observation of Lambeth Together, Local Care Network and other meetings to identify how the definition and principles of coproduction are applied in practice
• an analysis of examples of best practice nationally in coproduction for comparison
• identification of the evidence base for impact and benefits of coproduction
As a result of the field work, we developed a visually impactful road map for Lambeth Together which included:
• a review of the level and extent of coproduction definition and principles in action in Lambeth.
• a recommended framework for strengthening co-production throughout Lambeth’s integrated care system
• a recommended programme of work for Local Care Network delivery alliance development
• identified risks of moving to full co-production in Lambeth
We shared our findings with a wide range of stakeholders during an interactive event. Over 50 people attended; the event started with a presentation, after which we facilitated an open space where participants could reflect on what they had heard and consider and pledge actions that they could take forward as a result.
