A plan to outline the Trust’s aspirations over a 10 year period

Stride Treglown were approached by Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust to produce a strategic outline plan (SOP) document incorporating the projects identified by the Trust at an initial workshop. The aim was to provide business assurance in line with the Trusts strategic aims, taking reference to the site development report previously prepared.

The document produced follows the guidance laid down by the HM Treasury in the Green book supplementary guidance on delivering public value from spending proposals (5 case model).

This guidance provides a framework for thinking and a process for approval which is flexible and scalable along with a range of tools that can be applied proportionately to provide clarity in the decision support process. The approach also provides a clear audit trail for purposes of public accountability.

The document required support, collaboration and input from the Trust and other consultants (QS and Mechanical and Electrical Engineers) in order to produce it and outlines the Trust’s aspirations over a 10 year period.
