Current work in Evidence and Intelligence creating a national leadership role for evidence and intelligence (E&I) in PHE, integrating leadership of cancer registration, NDTMS, and cancer (inc. NCIN) and public health intelligence creating eight geographical areas of accountability, with multiple office sites/bases where needed combining cancer registry intelligence staff with public health observatory staff to create eight evidence and intelligence teams developing national cancer registration based on existing move to national system developing national NDTMS structure, drawing on existing regional teams and a common model providing an excellent responsive service to local partners, including PHE Centres, Local Authorities, Clinical Networks and others as appropriate
Revised to match PHE Regions, PHE Centres, and NHS CB LATs…subject to final confirmation: The Map (population in millions) 8.4m 3.4m 6.8m 7.8m 8.8m 4.8m 5.5m 6.5m
Context for local public health intelligence work What are the relevant changes? –Physical move and changed functions of DsPH and their teams –Local Authority public health responsibilities –Local ‘proposition’ ie. support offer Formal requirements: –NHS planning guidance for 2012/13: To agree arrangements on public health information requirements and information governance by September 2012 –PHE transition guidance checklist item: Are plans in place to ensure access to IT systems, sharing of data and access to health intelligence in line with information governance and business requirements during transition and beyond?
Legal requirements (Act 2012) “Obtaining advice from individuals who taken together have a wide range of professional expertise in the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of illness, and the protection or improvement of public health” Authorisation Criteria “1.3 Widespread involvement of other clinical colleagues providing health services locally [identified by..] Arrangements in place between LA and CCG specifying how public health advice to CCGs will be delivered.” Clinical Commissioning Groups
Commissioning Support Services Potential NHS commissioning support suppliers should: “Develop an understanding of how their offer will relate to other parts of the commissioning support supply chain and the delivery impact of this (for example by engaging with local authorities and the public health team to establish what they are providing)” “Work is on-going to establish which elements of Health Needs Assessment and Business Intelligence for NHS commissioners might be secured as part of a ‘core offer’ from Public Health England (PHE) and which components might be provided by NHS commissioning support functions”
Information Management in Public Health England Wide range of information management projects covering: What information do we need –National data requirements How do we access and handle it –Information governance –Information standards –Data management How do we use it –Indicators –Methods –PHE web portal Further information Robert Kyffin email@example.com@dh.gsi.gov.uk
Information Management in Public Health England National Data Requirements Model for agreeing and defining national data requirements for public health developed and tested at stakeholder workshop and with project advisory group Proposal currently being finalised – if approved, work will commence in autumn to establish an NDR Board and Advisory Groups Work also underway as part of the PHE Information Management project to clarify the day 1 national data requirements for PHE and ensure ongoing access to these data sets with HSCIC and other suppliers
Information Management in Public Health England Information Governance PHE Information Governance Project Group established, building on IG structures in PHE sender organisations Input into national information governance framework (regulations on uses of identifiable information and s251) and Caldicott 2 review Input into IC Code of Practice for Handling Confidential Information and de-indentification standard, etc. Agreement with DH, Health Research Authority and DH Adult Social Care on future arrangements for s251 advisory and approvals functions
Information Management in Public Health England Information Standards PHE collaborating with NHSCB and DH Adult Social Care to develop a joint operating framework for standards – governance arrangements currently being worked through Information standards operating framework to be jointly agreed by Oct-2012 Data Management Data flow mapping in preparation for PHE day 1 PHE data warehouse and safe haven – bring together key public health data resources to provide a single set of core, up-to-date, validated data sets which can be shared as a consistent resource within PHE and beyond
Information Management in Public Health England Indicators Develop standard PHE processes for agreeing and developing indicators (linking with HSCIC indicator pipeline) Public Health Outcomes Framework indicator gap analysis Methods Work across sender organisations to develop an integrated approach to analytical methods within PHE SOPs completed for a range of subjects including assigning deprivation categories, catchment areas and populations, RAG ratings, using postcode directories, etc. PHE web portal PHOF data reporting Portal specification produced Software development underway
Public Health Population Healthcare Advice (AKA The Core Offer) Why? Good population health outcomes, including reducing health inequalities, rely not only on health protection and health improvement, but on the quality and accessibility of healthcare services provided by the NHS Local authorities, as part of their statutory functions around public health, will have responsibility for providing healthcare public health advice to clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), Each CCG will be under a duty to “obtain advice appropriate for enabling it effectively to discharge its functions from persons who (taken together) have a broad range of professional expertise in – –the prevention, diagnosis or treatment of illness, and –the protection or improvement of public health. ” The current resource in terms of public health expertise to provide this service will transfer from primary care trusts (PCTs) to upper tier and unitary local authorities (LAs) as part of the ring-fenced public health budget. Further information Ann Goodwin, Project Manager, firstname.lastname@example.org@dh.gsi.gov.uk
Core Offer - The how and the what A working group was established. The membership included representatives from the Association of Directors of Public Health, the Faculty of Public Health, British Medical Association, Royal College of General Practitioners, GPs from emerging clinical commissioning groups (CCGs), the Local Government Group and the Association of Directors of Adult Social Services. Developed the content of the service by linking specialist public health advice to elements of the commissioning cycle, from assessing needs for health services through to planning capacity and managing demand Local authorities will be free to deliver this service in a variety of ways. For example, in relatively small authorities it may make sense to locate a team in a single authority, which will deliver the service on behalf of several local authorities. Public Health England will also play an important role in supporting the work of local information and intelligence specialists in the public health team. There is nothing to prevent local authorities from agreeing locally to offer a wider range of services over and above the free healthcare public health advice service. This would need to be agreed locally. If the healthcare public health service is to be effective there will need to be constructive relationships built between local authorities and CCGs, to ensure that the local commissioning fully reflects the population perspective. The key to making it work will be developing effective local partnerships. Subject to Parliament, regulations will clarify further what local authorities will need to provide in delivering this function, although the precise content of the service in each locality will be driven by local agreement, reflecting local needs and available skills and resources.
Core Offer - How much resource? The Association of Directors of Public Health surveyed Directors of Public Health to establish how much of their and their accredited public health specialists’ time was currently spent undertaking the elements of the service. The estimate was somewhere between 25% and 50% of the local specialist public health team. The guidance, based on the outputs of that survey, suggests (for planning purposes) that something in the region of 40% of the local public health specialist team might be engaged in this work, with a rough coverage of 1 wte specialist per 270,000 or so people. This will vary from place to place, and input will vary across the year and there will need to be local agreement of the inputs and outputs through local planning arrangements, reflecting for example, the number of CCGs.
Core Offer - Agreements The development of a local service agreement agreed with CCGs via a compact or Memorandum of Understanding between the local authority and CCG, specifying public health inputs and outputs, and outlining the reciprocal expectations placed upon the CCG. The ‘shadow’ period from April 2012 to March 2013 will be useful developing appropriate agreements. These agreements can be underpinned by an annual work plan for the healthcare public health advice service agreed by both the CCG and the local authority Director of Public Health specifying the particular deliverables for the twelve month period. Further accountability could be provided, for example, by the Director of Public Health and CCG jointly presenting to the relevant health and wellbeing board information setting out how the service had been provided that year. This might cover the process for engaging with public health expertise, names and teams, how the time had been spent, how statistically robust any data had been, lessons to be learnt for next year. Where there are concerns about the quality of the advice received we would expect this to be raised at the local level initially with the local authority.
Core Offer - Example MOUs Nottingham Outlines reciprocal responsibilities Not just about healthcare advice Specifies the resource Offers to provide training etc Worcestershire Outlines reciprocal responsibilities Not just about healthcare advice What don’t they cover ?
Core Offer - What next? Local Public Health Transition Plans Discussions with CCGs /CSS’s /Health and Wellbeing Board Data from CSS’s to support the ‘Core Offer’ should be free of charge Agreement between partners as to the ‘What’, ‘How’ and by ‘Whom’ Named Informatics leads in CCGs/CSS’s/Local Authority ww.dh.gov.uk/health/2012/06/public-health-advice- to-ccgs/

Vision & Headlines of CCG Intelligence Programme o The programme started out to understand the commissioning Intelligence requirements for CCGs from a bottom up approach o It involves strong clinical leadership to drive the national vision for intelligence to enable large scale health improvement for patients o We are co-designing the CCG Intelligence Delivery Model o Support the CCG authorisation and CSS assurance processes o Facilitate the sharing of current intelligence solutions and tools o Advice and support to develop one version of the truth shared across the patient journey and beyond
LAs and CCGs will need to use the same common data when producing this intelligence There is an opportunity to use the same version of the truth. Other Local Partnerships Integrated Commissioning Health & Wellbeing Boards Non-Health Local Authority Business Intelligence Public Health Local Authority Business Intelligence CCG Local Commissioning Intelligence CCG NHS CB National Commissioning Intelligence There are a number of local groups which need local Intelligence CCGs are accountable for commissioning services on the basis of the best available evidence Local Authorities are accountable for providing a Public Health advice service & other intelligence to support other wider LA agendas How LAs and CCGs will use intelligence to commission services35
We need: o Streamlined data flows, store data once and use many times o Increased sharing of data to enable greater understanding of the whole system What will it do for CCGs? o Greater understanding of the potential and scope of intelligence o Facilitate understanding of whole system & evidence interdependencies Overarching Question An example question Data and Tools Services Overarching concepts The CIM Model is a consolidated view of the different types of commissioning intelligence requirements needed to support evidence based commissioning decisions. It takes account of feedback from a large scale engagement exercise including innovative practice from across the country CCG intelligence requirements - The Commissioning Intelligence Model 36

Key issues across NW Region Access to Patient Identifiable Data (PID) IT and Information Governance Time lag between local transition plans and establishment of national/regional structures, e.g. PHE E&I Teams, NW DMIC etc. Intelligence provision in two-tier authorities – where does the responsibility lie? Loss of NW footprint with establishment of new PHE North of England region
Support from PH England and NHS CB Support for LAs seeking to complete NHS IG Toolkit –NW Transition Alliance? National forum for sharing examples of best practice from other areas around public health intelligence transition, e.g. data sharing agreements between CCGs and LA Further clarification of financial framework around access to data for LA PH teams from CSS/DMIC
Round Table Discussions Each table to discuss one of the issues covered by the national update –Information management –Commissioning for Intelligence model –Public Health Advice (‘core offer’) –Evidence –PHE contribution 45 minutes per session Each session run twice (12.00-12.45 and 1.00 to 1.45)
Questions for discussion Where are you now? Where do you think you should be in the new world? What are the obstacles in getting there? Opportunity to share local experiences, problems and solutions and raise issues with national leads.
