ACD Toolkit release note 7 April 2022

The Accelerated Cluster Development (ACD) Toolkit is a collection of information and adaptable resources for stakeholders who will be supporting and driving forward the implementation of the ACD programme including Primary Care teams, Professional Collaboratives, Clusters and Pan Cluster Planning Groups.  The toolkit will enable stakeholders to learn more about the ACD programme, its components and access tools to support local delivery.

The toolkit is designed to:

  • Create efficiencies - a series of templates for local adaption
  • Support the adoption of 'Once for Wales' best practice approach through the sharing of best practice guides and documents
  • Offer practical support and guidance in rolling out the ACD programme

The toolkit can be accessed here:  

Cluster Planning Support Portal (CPSP) indexes resources from across the system in Wales that may assist in producing and refreshing cluster/ pan-cluster planning group (PCPG) annual plans. It is structured to reflect the key elements of a planning cycle, providing an overview of considerations/ methodologies for assessment and response to local needs, linking to sources of further information, and supporting skill development. 

The CPSP is aimed at cluster, PCPG, and professional collaborative members for awareness and oversight, and at primary care/ health board staff supporting them with integrated planning requirements and can be accessed through the ACD Toolkit or directly:
