Measuring Social Impact – An NHS Building Health Partnerships Case Study

The Building Health Partnerships programme aims to improve health outcomes through supporting the development of effective and productive partnerships between Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), local authorities and voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) organisations. Supported by NHS England, the programme is delivered by Social Enterprise UK in partnership with the Institute for Voluntary Action Research (IVAR).

Dudley, is one of the 12 pilot areas and has been working on bringing commissioners into a new conversation with the voluntary, community and social enterprise (VCSE) sector, the Dudley Building Health Partnership programme has created a common system for demonstrating and measuring social impact. This is making commissioning a more collaborative process, leading to better health and care outcomes in Dudley.

The video, which was recently shown at the NHS Health and Care Innovation Expo in Manchester, features work from BSSEC member, Cloudberry, on their PSIAMS (Personal and Social Impact Action Measurement System) which is being used by a number of organisations across the Dudley borough and Birmingham.
