Professor Pradeep Khanna MBE Chief of Staff, Community Services Aneurin Bevan Health Board

2 Commissioning & Care Planning
Strategic Planning Specify Outcomes Develop Business Case Procure Services Manage Demand Maintain Performance

3 CASE FOR CHANGE Demand will always beat supply
Pressure on cost is remorseless NHS can not provide a comprehensive service on current assumptions after 2011 (Kings fund and the Institute of Fiscal Studies – IFS)


5 Some Facts Nearly 33% of inpatients could safely be cared for in another setting than in an acute hospital [Kings fund audit 1992; DOH 2000] 29% of patients in acute hospital beds are medically stable [43% in elderly wards] [Barbara Vaughan; Gill Withers 2002] In Wales, higher proportion of chronic long term conditions (23%) compared to England (18%); Northern Ireland (20%) Audit of 5 GP Practices in Swansea revealed 3% of population with 2 comorbidities + emergency admission accounted for 59% of hospital admissions [Ref = WAG 2007 – Designed to improve health …chronic conditions Wales] Conclusion: A focused integrated approach of Health and Social Care, Housing and Transport is recommended


7 Drivers For Change Wanless Report: Hard hitting facts about Health Services in Wales Designed for life: Strategic framework: Health & Social Care Services in Wales Fulfilled lives, Supportive Communities: Emphasis on Social Care Making the connections [Public involvement & redesign services around the needs of the users] 5. Primary Care & Community Services Strategy (Chris Jones)

8 Current System of Care “Push System full of Black Holes”


10 Hospital-at-Home: definition………
Hospital care but delivered in the person’s own home !!! HaH = “….a service that provides active treatment by health care professionals, in the patient’s home, of a condition that would otherwise require acute hospital in-patient care, always for a limited period.” Cochrane definition, 2005 Combination of personal support & rehabilitation care

11 Admission Avoidance Hospital at Home/Inpatient Care (Review)
[Systematic Review & Meta Analysis] Mortality at 3 months NS (P= 0.15) Mortality at 6 months Significant (P=0.005) Readmission Rates NS (P=0.08) (within 3 months) Functional Ability (12 months) i. Quality of Life ii. Physical abilities iii. Cognitive Status NS Reference: Sheppard S, Doll H, Etal: The Cochrane Library 2009: Issue 3

12 Hospital at Home CLINICAL OUTCOME: (Adverse Events & Medical Complications) Bowel Complications = % (96% C.I = 34% to 10.82) Urinary Complications = % (95% C.I = 25.4% to 3.3%) c Antipsychotic Prescribing = % (95% C.I = 28% to 0.3%) in Dementia Patients COPD = Antibiotic = % (95% = 34.6% to 1.4%) PATIENT SATISFACTION: Significant (P < ) 3. ECONOMIC ANALYSIS: (Co Morbidity: Older Group) Costs = Per episode $2011; 95% C.I (= $2800 to $1222) = Per day $293; 95% C.I (= $318 to $268) CONCLUSION: Admission Avoidance Hospital at home can provide an effective alternative for selected group of Patients (Outcome Similar)

13 Early Supported Discharge Teams Vs Conventional Care 11 Trials (6 countries)

RCTs HOSPITAL-AT-HOME DAY HOSPITAL 12 NURSE-LED UNITS 10 COM. REHAB.TEAMS CARE HOME REHAB COMMUNITY HOSPITAL 1 Message: (a) Target people with greatest clinical need (Frailty) (b) Integrate I.C with Mainstream Services Expensive Very expensive Shifts costs to social care

15 Messages From Research
Develop closer integration between IC and Mainstream Services Target Patients with greatest clinical need: Frailty Place stronger focus on Admission Avoidance Scheme (Health & Social Care) (Closer liaison with Ambulance Service, 3rd Sector, A&E, Mental Health) VANTAGE POINT Reablement: More Research/Evaluation needed

5 LHB CEOs, Trust CEO and 5 LA CEOs Aims: to develop better services along whole patient journey through closer working. To find better way of supporting people who end up needing Continuing Care Frailty Pathway chosen Gwent wide multi-agency, multi-professional workshop held April Task and Finish Groups to expand /develop ideas.

24 Happily Independent

25 What we stand for: Principles & Values
The underpinning principle of the Gwent Frailty Programme is to provide: ‘Help when you need it to keep you independent’ The mantra for those delivering services is to provide help that is Sustaining independence. We start with a view that the present system is untenable and that we are not treating people as well as we could or in a way that best uses the available resources and skills. We believe that people are made more helpless and lose the vital ingredients of confidence and control by present processes that lead to hospitalisation. We believe that people want to and can stay longer and more successfully in their own home environment provided that is of an acceptable standard, e.g. is warm and safe and accesses technology such as Telecare. We believe that people should not be in institutional care unless absolutely necessary. We firmly believe that people have to be seen as individuals with a life, a history, a future. Consequently, at a time when they can be most fearful then it is more important to respect and listen to what they want and need and provide simple, clear communication ideally through one allocated coordinator. We believe that people are the experts in their own life and that we need to tap into that expertise. We know that we can do a better job if we work together and that we need each others professional perspectives. We uphold the necessity of real multi agency work where each profession keeps its own distinctive colour and by sharing our expertise we deliver the sort of service that people deserve. We see the need for locality work that is integrated at the health and social care delivery end and is based on:Shared values Joint ownership Joint outcomes The Person at the centre We consider that the integrity of separate organisations within health and social care can add to the dynamism and productivity of the model. We believe that a range of community activities and services are key to ensuring that people are supported in maintaining and returning to independent living.

53 Performance Indicators
As per Frailty Programme Work stream and including: Pre-crisis Assessment (CGA): 100% offered within 28 days An episode of crisis requiring hospitalisation should normally require no more than 72 hours in hospital Service responses will be delivered within agreed time limits 50% of frail older people will be managed in the community during an episode of crisis 80% of frail older people with a social crisis will be maintained at home 75 % of rehabilitation services for frail older people will be based and delivered in the community.

55 Paul Williams Director General, Health & Social Services Chief Executive, NHS Wales
I want the service to focus on: Changing behaviour not structures; Collaboration not confrontation; Planning not commissioning; Whole systems not hospitals; Clinical engagement; Partnership working; and Wellness not illness (1st October 2009)
