Seraphim’s project, "A Whole Person, Whole System Approach to Integration: Reducing Costs While Improving Individual and System Outcomes,” was shortlisted in the Commissioning Support Services category of the HSJ Efficiency Awards 2012. The project, which he undertook in collaboration with a social care practitioner, looks at the urgent need for tools which enable whole system working. It describes the development of a simple and practical set of measures for benchmarking and analysing local use of whole system resources as the basis for discussion and planning. His recent article Quality Assurance Tool: Taking a Whole-system Approach summarises this work and was published in Nursing Management Journal, December 2014.
