We have been working with The Lambeth Early Action Partnership (LEAP), an innovative £36 million, 10-year programme funded by the National Lottery Community Fund as part of their A Better Start initiative to improve the life chances of babies and young children living in the London borough of Lambeth.
We have been consulting on their critically important data integration project involving the local council, several NHS Trusts, a clinical commissioning group, charities and community groups. This has included a full analysis of 20+ services, a catalogue of data flows and the development of a solution for uniquely identifying beneficiaries using pseudonymisation. In addition, we have supported LEAP’s providers and core team to achieve GDPR data compliance, establishing unified consent processes and minimum datasets, and exploring how data could be collected to assess the combined impacts of groups of services.
Chris Wellings, LEAP Assistant Director, has said, “Throughout this work, the team at Fotheringham Associates has demonstrated impressive technical knowledge, a can-do-attitude, willingness to go the extra mile, the ability to think creatively about solutions, the capacity to work well with a wide-range of stakeholders, and an instinctive grasp of the complexities of our operating environment. LEAP has benefited greatly from the technical advice and support offered by Fotheringham Associates and from the rigour of their approach.”
In terms of our delivery, he added, “All work has been completed on time and to the highest standards. The overall management of the project and the integration of several discrete workstreams has been handled very well. I would, without hesitation, recommend Fotheringham Associates to other organisations.”
