    • 1. Using Customer Insight to Understand Complex issues 10 th March 2010 Herefordshire Council’s Signposting Project Review Richard Beavan-Pearson – Assistant Director of Customer Services and Communications Louise Round – Corporate Project Manager
    • 2. Herefordshire………
      • Herefordshire is situated on the western edge of the West Midlands on the border with Wales and covers approximately 842 square miles.
      • Geographically, Herefordshire is the 2nd largest unitary authority in England; in terms of population, it ranks 26th of these 46 unitary authorities.
      • The population is approximately 179,000 and is the 4th lowest population density of the 150 'top tier'* authorities in England.
      • About one-third of the population lives in Hereford City, a third in one of the 5 market towns and a third in rural areas.
      • We are the first authority in the country to bring the Council, Primary Care Trust & Hospital Trust under one Chief Executive in order to deliver more cost effective and efficient services to our citizens
    • 3. The Challenge The County’s population has a considerably older age profile than that of England and Wales - 22.7% of the population is retired, compared with 18.5% nationally and there are fewer people of working age in comparison (58% compared to 61%). This all puts a huge strain on the finance & resources required by Adult Social Care to support older and vulnerable people in the County Population Forecasts (2006 based) Age Group 2011 2016 2026 0-14 28,100 27,200 27,000 15-59 98,600 97,100 89,900 60+ 55,700 62,100 76,700 Total 182,400 186,400 193,600
    • 4. About the Signposting Scheme
      • Connects vulnerable people to services that they need to remain independent and living in their own homes.
      • Reaches vulnerable people in rural areas as well as those in the more populated areas (some villages have village wardens who are sponsored by the scheme).
      • Cost effective as it maximises resources & engages many voluntary sector organisations that can provide high quality and relatively low cost services (50 partner agencies currently involved).
      • Based around a simple assessment form, which is processed by the signposting team and forwarded to the appropriate agencies for action.
      • Allows Herefordshire to focus on prevention services, through good co-ordination and partnership, and without huge additional expenditure.
      • Forms part of a local approach to person-centered services, which include intermediate care, extra care housing and home support services.
    • 5. Top Ten Signposting Services Used
    • 6. Top Ten Referral Agencies
    • 7. The Project Objectives
      • The project aimed to build on the success of the existing signposting scheme by:
        • Improving the data capture & processing aspects in order to streamline the referral process and to provide more detailed & meaningful information in a more timely manner.
        • Sharing this information more fully with other internal & external organisations to provide a wider view of the needs of the service user.
        • Analyse the data captured, together with service user characteristics, to help us better understand the needs of the various service user groups.
        • Use this information to help anticipate and target resident’s needs for services, which will in turn improve service delivery and inform service planning and Herefordshire “Tell us once” project.
    • 8. Localised segmentation
      • Herefordshire engaged with Experian Local Government team to create customised local segmentation of local population
      • 35 local authority and PCT datasets used, including local SUS data
      • 12 segments created
      • All datasets UPRN coded
      • and will be uploaded into
      • Herefordshire’s GIS system
      • to maximise benefits

    • 28. Lessons Learnt
      • Sharing data across organisations - data sharing protocols should not be seen as a blockage to joined up working
      • Things will take longer than you expect
      • Establish a good working relationship with your supplier early on and maintain it
      • Expand the scope of your project as opportunities present themselves, sometimes you only get one opportunity to get it right!
