Hampshire wants to integrate back-office services with emergency services and exploit public sector assets
More from: Transforming the community budget pilots
The council will look to private, public and voluntary sector partners as well as communities, harnessing the best of what each has to offer, in order to understand and manage demand for public services and jointly invest in long-term solutions.
The key objectives are:
- Shared platforms and joint investment such as an integratedbusiness centre which brings together back-office services for three major organisations - Hampshire Constabulary, Hampshire Fire and Rescue Service and Hampshire County Council. This aims to reduce unit costs, improve services offered and improve the approach to frontline services in response to the council’s transforming rehabilitation strategy.
- Exploit the value of public sector assets to bring public services together in one-stop shops that offer value for the taxpayer, a better service for customers and enable staff to work across organisations.
- Work with communities that place the highest demand on costly services to intervene early and establish sustainable models for reducing demand and improving outcomes.
- Long-term private sector partnerships, moving beyond the constraints of procurement processes in relation to external expenditure to develop relationships with major businesses with shared investment, objectives and improved outcomes.
- A significant partnership with health, capitalising on public health and social care responsibilities to establish truly integrated health and social care services that improve outcomes.
