Newsletter April 2021

1st April 2021

Janine Dellar Programme Consultant The Strategy Unit

Welcome to the May newsletter for the Midlands Decision Support Unit (DSU) Network. This edition of the newsletter looks back at the progress we have made in 2020/21 and how we are supporting local systems to make use of this work. It also looks forwards to the work programme that we have agreed with the network
for 2021/22.

We are continuing to work with local systems to support the development of local DSUs to provide each Integrated Care System (ICS) and NHSE/I Directly Commissioned Services with:
• Independent analytical insight for questions of strategic importance
• Access to knowledge
• Support for effective, evidence informed translation of analysis into action
• Ensuring that the ICS becomes a learning system and embraces evaluation as a
fundamental part of implementation
• Advancing decision quality

We have published our DSU design guide and are looking forward to running locally tailored DSU design sessions with each of our systems.
