Csp case study delivering sport makers to an nhs workforce

  1. 1. CSP Case StudyDelivering Sport Makers to an NHS Workforce Pro-Active North London (P-ANL) worked with the NHS to deliver two Sport Maker events at local hospitals. The events attracted 44 Sport Makers who have gone on to set up sport sessions and a Community Games event. Read on to find out how they did it…
  2. 2. CSP Case StudyDelivering Sport Makers to an NHS Workforce What happened?
  3. 3. CSP Case StudyDelivering Sport Makers to an NHS Workforce • P-ANL was contacted by the coordinator of an NHS wellness programme (Move for Life), which aims to create ‘sporting champions’ who encourage others to take part in sport. As the aims of this programme are similar to Sport Makers, they decided to run events for staff. • The NHS contact booked rooms, liaised with staff to find suitable dates and asked them to sign up online. • Although P-ANL created a tailored poster (which highlighted the low sport participation levels in the borough) to promote the event, the NHS contact took on all responsibility for marketing the events to staff. • Two events were held across two hospitals.

  5. 5. CSP Case StudyDelivering Sport Makers to an NHS Workforce • Tie the event to an existing workplace initiative – this meant that the NHS could easily see what the benefits of Sport Makers would be to them. • Use NHS contact to promote the event – her knowledge of promoting events like this within the NHS meant that the CSP used less resource in this area. • Use paper registrations on the day – some members of staff live in neighbouring CSP areas so weren’t able to find the event online.
  6. 6. CSP Case StudyDelivering Sport Makers to an NHS Workforce • Keep NHS contact updated on numbers booked on to events – this helped her keep track of how many more people she needed to register for the event. • Be realistic about number of events held - the CSP originally wanted to run two events in order to fit in with shift patterns. However, there were not enough numbers to cover two events, so they reverted to one event at each hospital. • Run a shorter version of the event – the CSP adapted their event so that it lasted 90 minutes. Staff were able to take extended lunch breaks or reschedule their time to attend.
  7. 7. CSP Case StudyDelivering Sport Makers to an NHS Workforce • Provide lunch – for some, missing out on lunch would be a barrier to attendance. • Make the event interactive – the CSP delivered the event in a quiz style and set up Ping! table tennis sets for staff to use. • Pick a ‘Sporting Champion’ from each event – they were able to communicate with Sport Makers and the CSP to ensure that Sport Makers were connected to relevant deployment opportunities • Link Sport Makers to existing events – the CSP’s Community Games Officer and the NHS contact helped the Sport Makers to deliver a successful Community Games event.
  8. 8. CSP Case StudyDelivering Sport Makers to an NHS Workforce What were the results?
  9. 9. CSP Case StudyDelivering Sport Makers to an NHS Workforce • 44 Sport Makers attended in total. • Sport Makers have set up popular sport and fitness sessions for colleagues at the hospitals and hosted a successful daytime, multi-sports Community Games event.
