10 LCES now: the options appraisal - service requirements  Via stakeholder meetings came up with 15 service requirements for a future service:  The PO has clear, transparent, auditable and effective management, governance and regulatory arrangements  The PO complies with relevant major mandatory national policies

11 LCES now: the options appraisal - service requirements  The PO is based on a sound economic rationale  The PO caters to the requirements of service users/customers  The PO aligns with major strategies of LCC and Leeds PCT

12 The options appraisal: service requirements  The PO serves all population groups  The PO is an integrated service delivered by as few providers as possible  The PO is deliverable within the current versions of LCC/LCES capacity and implementation plans  The PO retains a social responsibility towards LCES staff and any new starters

13 The options appraisal: service requirements  The PO retains a public service ethos  The PO has in place the relevant commercial and partnership arrangements  The PO is supported by appropriate information/ICT requirements  The PO complies with TCES agenda

21 Making the “decision”  Structured day with project board and other stakeholder delegates scoring the recommendations against the options based on the presentations of their findings by work package leads.  After all scoring complete the weightings applied to give final decision

22 Making the “decision”  Factors around costs, need for change?, performance of test sites, need for clear and open governance, lack of data re. regional options, need to meet national and local policy expectations etc. were critical in decisions making

23 The recommendation  Always clear that decision could only be recommendations for consideration by PCT and LA decision makers  Agreed that the recommendations would take account of the vote but also the narrative which emerged via stakeholder sessions, managers meeting, project board meetings etc.

24 The recommendations  Retain in-house joint service purchasing and providing much of equipment over £?  Put systems in place to provide cash and prescriptions to people using IBs  Work with retailers to develop local market to enable above and take prescriptions for some items £? and under

25 The recommendations  Explore option for in-house / social enterprise arm of main service to offer retail sales and hire service to ensure continuity and expertise

26 The recommendations  Ensure that all AT users are supported – including self funders  Focus on the further development and coordination of all AT services in Leeds  Forge new partnerships between all AT providers (statutory, private and voluntary sectors)  Further develop use of Telecare and related technologies

27 Next steps…  Implementation of the preferred option for community equipment provision is part of a wider project to develop our assistive technology offer

28 Definition of AT  “AT can be defined as any item, piece of equipment, product or system that is used to increase maintain or improve the functional capabilities and independence of people with cognitive physical or communication difficulties”.  Audit Commission 2004

29 Developing our Assistive Technology (AT) Services  Work has started in Leeds to develop some of our existing AT services and better coordinate AT services across the city  For LCES, this means implementing our preferred option  For Telecare, it broadly means service expansion

30 Assistive Technology (AT) Services in Leeds  We also plan to develop an Assistive Technology Hub  The AT Hub will operate as a single point of contact for all service users, enabling us to:  Provide a universal AT offer, including for self-funders  Provide straightforward access to all AT provision  Promote greater understanding of what various AT can do via information, advice and training  Provide personalised AT; integral to overall care packages
