This government has made huge progress backing front line public servants who want to form public service mutuals and take control of the services they provide.
The regional roadshow in Exeter was a great opportunity for local authorities to hear first-hand from those who have successfully spun out of the public sector to deliver services more efficiently and effectively. Independent experts were also on hand to give practical advice on each step of the mutualisation journey.
SEQOL’s Chief Executive, Heather Mitchell, gave a fantastic first-hand account of both the challenges of spinning out and the benefits and new opportunities it can bring. A mutual delivering integrated health and social care in the local Swindon area, SEQOL is currently working in partnership with Swindon Borough Council and NHS Swindon.
Further roadshows and events are planned across other regions.
You can also access tailored toolkits, resources and news for both staff and commissioners.
