Private: Learning Log 55 – Public Health Bolton Skills Audit

Date: 18th May 2017

Number: 55

Significant Experience: Creating and undertaking

What Happened?: I have summarized the activity here

So What?:  I found this to be very interesting and challenging piece of work to produce. It was nice to effectively transfer the skills I had developed producing the Knowledge for Healthcare Development Needs Analysis into a Public Health setting. I produced a good quality piece of work that I am proud of. However, despite it being undertaken successfully, the project itself was never fully realized within Public Health as after a change in the power structure within the team, appetite for it quickly died as new senior management already had development needs in place.

There were also issues during the creation with staff input, as with being an internal project, there was a lot of preconceived ideas and internal politics that impacted the quality of the project.

Now What?:  Now, when next working on such a wide piece of work I shall ensure that I have complete senior management buy-in to assure that I do not end up wasting several months of work due to power issues between members of staff within senior positions and to avoid professional disappointment.

When & Where?: Office Based – September 16 – March 17
