Delayed Transfers of Care - where are we now?
Much like the fabled, Green Paper for Social Care, Delayed Transfers of Care seem to have been forgotten about. Only to be heard of in passing and used alongside much bigger stories but what should we take from this? Should we assume now that the problems have subsided and are under control? Should we take this as the delays have reduced and no longer cost the NHS nearly a billion a year? Or do we take it that other concerns have overshadowed those associated with Delayed Transfers of Care?
Will NHSx make a difference?
Sounding like an extra from the next Terminator film, the new NHS Unit (NHSx) has been tasked with, ‘Driving forward the digital transformation of health and social care’. A noble cause and one that we applaud. Fax machines belong in a museum and not within the confines of a modern healthcare organisation, especially one that deals with an average of a million patients every 36 hours.
The NHS is free and therefore, why is Social Care not?
We assume that social care will, much like the NHS be free throughout our lives and with this precedence that the NHS creates, it is an understandable assumption. We have this illusion shattered at a point in our lives. In this moment, we find out that in reality, social care is not free and it is a bone of contention that continues to follow successive governments.

ECLIPSE User Community Day
Built alongside practitioners is what we tell prospective customers and it is true. As an organisation, we are beholden to no shareholders and free to design software and services that work alongside the user. We created our ECLIPSE Software and Services Platform to make a difference and designed it with end-users.
How do you design the perfect case recording solution?
There will be many schools of thought on this as to what information needs to be included and what needs to be excluded. What we believe is that as many pieces of the jigsaw as possible are required to create the best possible case record. By including as much information as you can, you will ensure that the individual in front of you receives the best care available.
Birmingham Children’s Trust has launched with ECLIPSE from OLM
Birmingham City Council is the largest local authority in Europe. They represent the largest number of constituents as a single authority, at more than one million. With so many depending on them for such a wide range of services, they knew that they needed to look to technology in order to create efficiencies. This is where they found ECLIPSE and a means in which to effectively change their working practices.

Put simply, they are an organisation dedicated to the health and wellbeing of individuals with mental health issues and learning difficulties. They are also the recipients of not one but two ‘Outstanding’ ratings from the Care Quality Commission, CQC. These ratings are notoriously difficult to come by, with less than 5% of the total number of inspected organisations achieving his rating.
Safeguarding good practice for Charities: Governance and systems guide
As much as we would all like to say that safeguarding is not an issue in our society, it is. Safeguarding is a global issue that affects everyone. We need to acknowledge this and work together to minimise risk. We need to create working cultures that deem behaviour of this nature unacceptable to bring those responsible to justice, quicker.
