4 An acute hospital admission is a failure of the Health System. The real challenge to the NHS is how to manage chronic disease better

5 The trick is to convert unplanned care into planned. Adopt a multi-skilled, multi- agency approach to ensure effective care co-ordination

6 Unique Care Integrate Health and Social Care Deal with current referrals Joint assessment & joint working (SAP) Tailored packages of care Hospital In-reach Get the 20% on the radar

7 Unique Care Same day assessment 97% of time Utilisation of primary care team, CPNs Practice nurses, etc. Involvement of Voluntary Sector Better use of other Health Professionals, including pharmacists, rehab, OT, rapid response teams Effective use of social services resources

8 Over 65s Admissions per 1,000 Population

9 Over 65s Average Length of Stay

10 Over 65s Bed Days per 1,000 Population

11 Other Effects District Nurse Team didnt need backfill GPs home visits fell by 30% Social Services budget made small saving in Castlefields but overspent in Borough Use of intermediate care remained stable & within expected for population 48 cases; admissions fell from 123 to 2 and only three went into long term care

12 Money released for re-investment Practice Population: 12,000 Saves £210,000 (US$ 408,281) per year on admissions

13 Over 65s Acute Admissions Castlefields Health Centre

14 Unique Care – 5 Key Principles 1.Create a Unique Care team between health and social services 2.Create and maintain a practice based register of patients with complex needs 3.Case find patients at risk of admission 4.Establish hospital in-reach 5.Create a bespoke plan with each patient

15 Which patients benefit most from Unique Care? Supported Self Care Disease Management Case Management Level % of an LTC population Level 2 High Risk Patients Level 3 Highly Complex Patients Professional Care Self Care Unique Care

16 Multiple Crisis – Multiple LTCs, complex medical & social needs, frequent admissions to hospital / A&E attendance / OOH Service Not attended for screening / OPAs Experienced major life changes e.g. bereavement, deterioration in health, self neglect An older person about whom you have concerns Which patients benefit most from Unique Care?

17 The Pareto principle 20% of supermarket products account for 80% of sales 20% of criminals account for 80% of the value of crime 20% of people who marry account for 80% of divorce statistics 20% of your carpet gets 80% of the wear 20% of the clothes in your wardrobe get worn 80% of the time Source: Koch 1998

18 The 20% of Patients who need 80% of the Care Older People Decreased Functional Ability Revolving Door Admissions COPD & Heart Failure End of Life Psychological & Social Support Packages of care tailored to the individual

19 Postal Questionnaire 20 questions Yes/No answers only One sheet of paper Coloured ink & large font Invitation signed by own GP Helpline First & second reminders

20 Response All practices in PCT recruited 3999 identified as potential participants 350 ruled out by cross-checking with the practices 3649 sent questionnaire 302 declined to participate 305 failed to respond 3048 positive response (83.5%)

21 12 month summary Diabetes 1.3 Lung problems 1.7 Heart problems 1.7 Stroke 1.7 Cancer 1.2 Depression 1.6 Bladder problems 1.6 Leg ulcers 2.2 Lives alone 1.0 Help if ill 1.1 Help to get out 0.4 Bath without help 0.4 Eyesight 1.7 Memory problems 1.9 Flu Vacc medicines 2.0 Previous admission 2.9 Fall 1.8 Bereavement 1.2 General health 0.4

22 12 month summary Diabetes 1.3 Lung problems 1.7 Heart problems 1.7 Stroke 1.7 Cancer 1.2 Depression 1.6 Bladder problems 1.6 Leg ulcers 2.2 Lives alone 1.0 Help if ill 1.1 Help to get out 0.4 Bath without help 0.4 Eyesight 1.7 Memory problems 1.9 Flu Vacc medicines 2.0 Previous admission 2.9 Fall 1.8 Bereavement 1.2 General health 0.4

23 Identifying At Risk Start with 10, then if Yes Do you have heart problems? +3 Do you have leg ulcers? +4 Can you get out of the house without help? -5 Do you have problems with your memory and get confused? +4 Have you been admitted to hospital for an emergency in the last 12 months? +8 Would you say the general state of your health is good? -4

24 SCORE% Pop Identified Chance of Admission 20+ 6% 55% % 47% % 30% <10 75% 17%

25 Identifying High Risk Tools only go so far, so dont be rigid Look out for repeat admittees Severe COPD Heart Failure More holistic assessment Packages of care according to need Regular review

26 Has this worked elsewhere?

27 Enfield – Practice Population 3,600 Emergency Admissions Reduction 50% (12% in comparator practice) Occupied Bed Days Reduction 70% (10% in comparator) Excess Bed Days Value Reduction 98% (23% in comparator) Spells Value Reduction 49% (5.6% in comparator) Total Budget Savings 67% (8% in comparator) Total budget savings over 5 months = £99,000 Estimate over 1 year = £237,000

28 Results Reduction in admissions Reduction in bed days Castlefields15%40% Bracknell Forest20%40% Durham Dales15%20% Oldham25%20% Enfield53% (12%)70% (10%)

29 Avoiding one admission per week If all 13 Durham Dales practices avoided one admission per week, this would release money for re-investment to the tune of: ************************£642,876******************** 1.2 million US$ (£ /6 Durham Dales)

30 Feedback from sites Unique Care has had the benefit of reducing the number of referrals to social services……the team have helped older people to understand better what the statutory services can provide for them Jenny Goodall: Director, Brent Social Services This approach has reduced my workload a lot. Quality of care for complex housebound patients has improved immensely GP, Derbyshire Dales & South Derbyshire PCT Unique Care makes life easier for people with complex needs in many cases its the simplest things that have made a big difference. Gwyneth Oates: Care Co-ordinator "Its a good feeling knowing that capable and caring people are there to support you if problems arise" Patient, Durham Dales PCT

31 And more importantly………….. The hospital said that I wasnt fit to be on my own really…..after further consideration I decided I didnt want to go there (residential home), after all here I can do what I like, I can get up in the night, imagine what it would be like living in somebody elses place! Patient, Brent Its very hard with angina. You get frightened and you just dont know where to turn. I was able to talk to you and I know I have somebody there and its nice to have somebody. I did what you told me taking my spray and not get to excited about it all and it saved me from the phoning the ambulance. Patient, Oldham 2005.

32 Health and Social Care Perspective Challenges Opportunities Coming together

33 Health and Social Care Perspective Those that use our services, want /deserve /need services that meet their needs, they also want to make informed choices about their lives. Emphasis on choice and self determination for the individual.

34 Health and Social Care Perspective The need to work together to tackle the growing numbers of people with chronic illness and long term conditions The need for local providers and purchases to develop services through the market place and contestability

35 Health and Social Care Perspective We are both struggling with our finances. Patients / citizens want more choice and better services – we are tempted to cost shunt rather than see the commissioning gap!

36 We can if we want to Challenge existing cultures Ensure the empowerment of people to take expert control of their conditions Delivering high quality care

37 What has worked Scrap the eligibility criteria for low level services such as –Careline (telephone response / pendant service ) –Meals on wheels ( frozen meals service ) My Mum

38 Conclusion There is a willingness to work together especially with GPs so that we can jointly commission new and preventative services We want to create new care pathways and community based services so that we can manage demand and expectation together.

39 So what are you going to do when you go back to work…… How will you make a difference? How will your patients know?

40 We can rise to the challenge…! Philip Lewer Tel: (07918) Ruth Adam Tel: (0161)
