#emlaAcrossBoundaries LEADERSHIP WORD 1, WORD 2, WORD 3
#emlaAcrossBoundaries SYSTEM – Definition (about 100 characters)
Good Organisational Leadership: Single Vision Aligned Strategy and Business Plan Focus on Quality and Finance Strong Governance Standardised policies and procedures Agreed measures of success Owned and Understood Values and beliefs Consistent and Positive Culture Distributed Leadership Strong team identities and effective working Having all of these traits working well together is not very common in large healthcare organisations. Consider working with multiple organisations – how many of these are true?
Key findings Delivering system-level integration will require a combination of a collaborative approach to leadership and directive, effective organisational leaders. Both of these different leadership approaches can and ideally should be modelled within the system, but this is challenging at an individual level. Health and social care organisations are complex adaptive systems. Successful approaches to developing system leaders recognise this and the need for a new leadership approach, although paradigms of ‘command and control’ leadership are prevalent. Studies show that the world’s most successful health care systems make widespread and systematic use of improvement methods. These encourage learning by doing, using small tests of change to observe, reflect and explore what works best for a particular context. David Fillingham Belinda Weir October 2014
Learning in a complex adaptive system Learning needs emerge and change Inter-organisational and inter-professional teams are critical to successful change What works is context specific… so local organisation and health economies will need to adapt not just adopt A successful change will require attention to technical aspects (‘the anatomy’) and cultural aspects (‘the physiology’). (Zimmerman et al 1998)

LEARNING FROM THE PRIVATE SECTOR Learn to operate without the might of the hierarchy behind them and use their individual skills rather than their formal position to achieve results Be able to compete in a way that enhances rather than undercuts the competition – to do this these leaders must become successful collaborators Conduct their business to the highest ethical standards; trust is crucial to successful alliance-building Develop a process focus – concentrating not only on what is to be achieved but how

Discuss in Pairs: What have you learned that you didn’t know before you did this programme? In what ways (if any!) have you changed the way you work with others?
Discuss in Groups: How successful has your project been? (score 1-10) How much has the learning from this programme contributed to its success? (score 1-10) Add these two scores together. Make sure everyone on your table knows what your total score is!
The ability to work across boundaries and to put the needs of the system ahead of, or at least alongside, those of their own institution will be one of the hallmarks of the leaders who will thrive in the new world.
Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust & Derbyshire Community Health Services NHS Trust Frail Elderly Care Pathway Part 1 & 2
Integrated Care and the Discharge to Assess and Manage Process
Integrated care ‘The current fragmented services fail to meet the needs of the population and greater integration can improve the patient experience and the outcomes and efficiency of care’ (Kings Fund, March 2013) The aim for Northern Derbyshire as outlined in our System Plan is to keep people: Safe and Healthy – free from crisis and exacerbation At home – out of social and health care beds Independent – managing with minimum support
Right care, Right place, Right time Patient centred wrap around care More efficient with NO duplication
“In a fully integrated system, patients’ needs not organisational boundaries would decide how care is provided” Nuffield Trust, 2014

Our club strategy…. Player / Manager Coaching Project team Years secondment for Theatre Matron EMLA Learning new skills
Second half…. Agree length of match Kick off and finish on time Improve team play Understand the off-side rule! Avoid relegation Session times, 85% utilisation target Improve start and finish times Same teams working together Greater understanding of business Sustainability
Leading Across Boundaries Programme Reducing Internal Waits Royal Derby Hospital
Reducing Internal Waits Why did we ‘chose’ the project? Who we are? What did we expect from ‘Leading Across Boundaries’? What did we need to know? How did we plan to do it? What did we find? How did we tackle the problem? How will we solve the problem?
Why did we do this project? Acute Trusts have constant pressure from ED 4-hour target 4-hour target is a whole-system measure Inefficient IP processes = Inadequate acute bed capacity = Poor flow = Failed 4-hour target Ageing population/Complex co-morbidities We need to create capacity within the system
Why did we do this project? The Emergency Care Intensive Support Team (ECIST) reviewed all RDH in- patients with a LOS over 7 days in August 2013. 20% of adult inpatients were only in hospital because they were awaiting a test, specialist opinion or similar
‘We can reduce length of stay for a significant proportion of our adult in- patients by expediting tests, assessments, specialist opinions or similar.’ Hypothesis

Thanks to Joanna Klein and Rachel Jerram Lots of work to do (Phase 2). Comms, branding, development Inspired by commitment. Leadership is a journey. Traffic jam in the rain Open road in the sun
Leadership…a resource for the team not a privilege for the incumbent…should be defined and evaluated in terms of the performance of the team Robert Hogan
Creating sustainable leadership As a team consider; How you worked together as a team? What felt easy? What took time to develop? Your highs and lows over the last 10months What experiences and learning will support you in future Leading Across Boundaries working? How will you build on success?
Letters from the Launch Event Take some time to reflect: What you have learnt about yourself from the programme? How are you leading differently? What is your leadership goal for the future?
Background East Midlands Ambulance Service cover 6425 square miles across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Rutland, Derbyshire and Northamptonshire. We serve a population of approximately 4.86 Million people delivering both Emergency and urgent care transport, as well as PTS within the North of Lincolnshire. On a daily basis EMAS receive 2155 emergency calls via 999. Ambulance staff nationally receive limited mental health training during their standard paramedic education. The most probably outcomes for Mental health patients in crisis when seen by EMAS are section 136 and ED attendance.
What is a Tri-Agency Mental Health Triage Car? A car with the specific function of meeting the needs of those in mental health crisis. Supported by three agencies, Ambulance, Mental health and Police Unmarked Car provided by and maintained by EMAS Trained staff man the car from ambulance and mental health services to ensure a complete Pyscho-Social assessment is completed combining the expertise of the two health professionals Provides on scene support for Patients, Ambulance staff and Police Provides telephone triage for Ambulance and Police
Current Operating Procedure All call outs are processed through the Lincolnshire Emergency operations centre for EMAS. The car is staffed from 16:00 to 00:00 seven days a week and is accessible by EMAS frontline staff and police Police calls and 999 calls are processed through AMPDS(Card 25) EMAS frontline staff call control for support the car then attends to provide back up. The car provides assessment and intervention as required and a care plan is agreed on by the paramedic and mental health nurse. If a police officer is present at the call then the care plan is tri-agency with agreement from the police officer as well. Care plans will be created with, and provided to the patient if appropriate.
Who Benefits From This Outcome? Improved outcomes for patients who are detained in the community. Reduction in ambulance crews and police on scene time Reduction in the use of conveyance by police and ambulance crews. Reduction in the number of inappropriate detentions made under the s136 of Mental Health Act. Reduction in the call out of Forensic Medical Examiner (FME) and Approved Mental Health Professional (AMHP) within custody. Increased accessibility to mental health service staff beyond normal working hours. Experimental learning due to multi agency teamwork, leading to greater understanding of roles of other professionals within the mental health service. Improved use of resources and multiagency working leading to financial benefit for the National Health Service and the Criminal Justice System. EVERYONE !
Where Do We Go From Here? Review the hours the Lincoln Car runs Review the need for a second car Consider expanding the role of the car to include adolescents Integrate the car across EMAS to improve patient services across the trust Develop a paramedic rotation to combine time on the MH car and standard responding. Up-skill the Paramedics to include suturing/gluing Expand the paramedics Mental Health knowledge and skills Use the links developed with Mental Health services to create pathways for Paramedics when the car is unavailable
The Jasmine Healthcare Suite for Women in a High Secure Psychiatric Setting Dr Sue Elcock (Consultant Forensic Psychiatrist) Mr Richard Phipps (General Manager) Ms Natalie Jennings (Modern Matron, Forensic Division) Ms Martina Griffiths (Ward Manager – Topaz Ward) Ms K Johnstone (Team Leader – Topaz Ward)
To develop a therapeutically appropriate and safe environment for patients to receive physical healthcare whilst maintaining privacy and dignity e.g. palliative care To provide an enhanced level of staff knowledge and confidence in identifying and managing physical health issues in patients in a psychiatric setting To be able to maintain ongoing psychiatric care whilst receiving appropriate physical healthcare in their own environment to aid relational security and reduce risks potentially associated with inpatient admissions to other hospitals To provide equivalent care to female patients as male patients AIMS
IMPACT “Whilst being nursed in the jasmine suite I felt all my needs were met and I felt I could move around without being restricted. I had lots of amenities at hand and the staff were brilliant. I had more quality of life on the jasmine suite than I’ve ever had being nursed out of grounds. My transition from Bassetlaw to the Jasmine Suite went very smoothly and there was nothing more I could of needed. Once in the Jasmine Suite I was able to move around more freely and was able to reach all of the amenities without much assistance. The fresh air and exercise are easily accessible and wheelchair access is well within limits. I think fresh air is an important part of recovery. The actual suite is well ventilated, cosy and warm, its homely and pleasant, staff were friendly and its very spacious. I feel the Jasmine Suite is well equipped and all the amenities are well at hand for the patient. The Jasmine suite played a very big role in my transition back to the ward and I hope all other people that stay there will be comfortable too.”
“I was very privileged to be part of the opening of the Jasmine Suite but I was personally proud of the fact that after the death of a friend I had written to Dr H suggesting that we needed an infirmary suite that catered for palliative care as well as convalesce where recovery can be physical as well as mental. It was named by a patient who won a prize for naming it in a competition and has been used already for a patient to recover after a hospital stay.”
