From Steve Grange, Programme Director

EPCC is evolving – the delivery component of the STP programmes have been redefined, many of which are sitting with the Transformation Delivery Unit (TDU).  The TDU was formed on 1 August 2019 to harmonise the project governance and implement a discipline of project delivery, whilst showing clear accountability through to our system as we embark on becoming an Integrated Care System. 

To that end, as a system, we agreed that we would change EPCC to have that strategic lens and would focus on the following:

  • Primary care strategy
  • Social prescribing
  • Primary Care Network development
  • Care home stratification/development
  • Dentistry
  • Pharmacy
  • Pre-Consultation Business Case – assurance and overview
  • End of life care
  • Long-term conditions strategy/management
  • Ophthalmology.

The EPCC board continues to provide the governance needed to inform and influence system decisions and projects. Projects will not be accepted by the TDU until they have been vigorously tested using robust methodologies.
