Rochdale Borough Council, P2P Health Check

“Oxygen’s approach was extremely helpful and supportive from start to finish. The P2P Health Check was really helpful for us to identify areas in which improvements needed to be made. It helped us identify training needs and also what we do well as a local authority and helped us provide a more positive service. The recommendations given were encouraging and beneficial and have helped us to improve the P2P policy.
