1 Locality Meeting 15 May 2014 Co-commissioning Prescribing Urgent care and Health & Independence Update on RAIDR CCG feedback EPaCCs reminder

2 Co-commissioning Simon Stevens (NHS Chief Exec) has announced an option for CCGs to co- commission primary care services Expressions of interest are required by 20 th June 2014 (from interested CCGs) Largely relates to GP services Scope –work with patients, Health and Wellbeing Board –Designing local contracts, eg PMS –Discretionary payments eg premises –Managing resources –Contractual performance –Procurement for new services Key points Geography? Single CCG or joint with neighbouring CCGs? Benefits? Improved integration of health & care services and out of hospital care, mental health, community services etc Improved service quality Enhanced patient and public involvement in developing services Reducing inequalities

3 Co-commissioning - continued Any submission would require the CCG to identify the areas that it would wish to cover Spectrum of co-commissioning –An Ipswich and East Suffolk bid or with West Suffolk ? –Greater involvement in decisions made by Area Team –Joint commissioning with Area Teams –Delegated commissioning arrangements – CCG undertakes tasks on behalf of Area Team Expressions of interest would need to indicate the form and proposed timescales of the co-commissioning, extent of co-location of Area Team Staff and in particular how the CCG would deal with potential conflicts of interest. More detail is being worked up by the NHS Commissioning Assembly

4 Co-commissioning – What next? Some proactive approaches from practices expressing interest that those involved in the delivery of primary care should be shaping primary care services. Before the CCG goes any further with thinking about this we want to ask you what you think. We will send Senior Partners a letter this week, requesting your practice’s view on: –Option 1 - Supportive of a submitting a proposal to pursue these additional opportunities –Option 2 – Do not support the option and wish to retain the status quo We will also be asking other partner organisations what they think, including the LMC.

8 To boldly go… Vision of the Urgent Care System Diagram provided by Dr Imran Qureshi

9 Proposed Overall Urgent Care System Model for Suffolk

10 ComponentsKey Services and Functions NHS 111 and Care Coordination Centre NHS 111 is part of National Mandate – compulsory for local NHS Where patients can phone to get urgent care advice, including 111 service, out of hours service, community health Used by health and social care professionals to access specialist urgent care advice, arrange dispatch of services (e.g. to relieve paramedics) Refer patients into Integrated Neighbourhood Networks or Urgent Care Services that travel to patients, are based in community locations away from the two main hospitals, or referral to Urgent Care facilities co-located with A&E facilities. Directory of Services Urgent Care Services in the community, including travelling to patients Community based locations serving urgent care needs Step-up beds Explore access to diagnostics and minor injuries Urgent Care Services co- located with A&E facilities Co-located at Acute Trusts Sees all unannounced arrivals previously seen by A&E and referrals from professionals. Primary Care, commissioned specialty input, diagnostics, minor injuries and transfer to community-based services A&E for the ‘genuine emergency’

11 DateKey Milestones February 2014Clinical commissioner work on development of strategic commissioning intentions including consideration of the reports from stakeholder events March-April 2014Design of outline service model May 2014Receipt and approval of outline service model by statutory bodies June-August 2014Formal public engagement Further system work on the detailed service specification including financial modelling August-September 2014Evaluation of responses September 2014Formal approval of service specification and agreement to start procurement by statutory bodies October 2014-February 2015Formal procurement and evaluation of bids March 2015Statutory bodies approve letting of contract(s) April-September 2015Mobilisation of new contract

12 Update on RAIDR The RAIDR (Reporting Analysis & Intelligence Delivering Results) system is being offered to practices as of now. The first wave of practices have been contacted and are already starting to receive training on the system. It is anticipated that all practices will be able to receive the training and use the tool by the end of June. RAIDR will be able to support the NHS England Admissions Avoidance DES, Over 75s work, MDTs.

13 CCG Feedback raised at April education event Issue/QueryOutcome/Update Practices are having issues with contacting the CCC (Care Coordination Centre), with the service having no capacity and asking practices to call back This has been raised with the Contracts Team at the CCG, however the team will need specific examples in order to investigate. If practices continue to experience this, please email with the Practices are having problems getting hold of the RAAC This has been raised with the Contracts Team at the CCG, however the team will need specific examples in order to investigate. If practices continue to experience this, please email with the Practices have not been given enough time with the Suffolk Federation to discuss the Over 75s work At the next event (25 th June) at Trinity Park, the Federation will hold a meeting afterwards at 5:15pm to give practices the opportunity to meet with them. OA Knee referrals are going to the Nuffield due to patient choice (C&B) and T&O consultants are advising this to patients and encouraging them to go through C&B The CCG is aware of this issue and working closely with consultants to ensure this does not continue. If practices find that this is still happening, please email specific examples to SERCO contract and query around workforce numbers – GPs would like to see a new map of where Serco is now compared to where they were at the start of the contract (to include a skill mix) We are working with the Contracts team to supply this information to practices Admission Avoidance DES – practices would like help and support for templates and coding. It would also be useful to have templates attached to LES’ and DES’ when they are issued. The CCG has received the final specification for this DES from NHS England and are currently reviewing the content. Further updates and any necessary supportive documentation will follow. GMS/PMS contractual changes – practices would like to work closely with each other and the CCG on this The CCG will continue to offer support to practices and is happy to work with practices taking into account the CURRENT commissioning environment To raise a query, you can email The mailbox is monitored twice daily, issues are then logged and a response should be available within 20 working

14 Issue/QueryOutcome/Update Palliative Care patients – lack of co-ordination between the Hospice, IHT and Hospice at Home. Oncology and the Hospice also appear to be ‘pushing back’ which is leading to acute admissions Inpatient beds are for patients who have specialist palliative care needs (uncontrollable symptoms, complex psycho social issues etc) and so a hospice bed cannot always be offered as a choice for patients. However, if a patient is referred they will ensure they have a package of hospice care, which may be hospice at home, day care etc. Oncology will also prioritise their beds for oncology patients (especially patients requiring active treatment) by default their beds get used as palliative care beds but again capacity is limited. The CCG will take the issue of co-ordination to the next end of life network where all providers are present to discuss further Palliative Care patients – patients are being admitted to nursing homes as services are not available for patients at home. GPs are not being funded to look after these patients. The CCG has noted this query however requires more detail in order to be able to investigate fully. Please email with full details so that we can IHT forms – can these be standardised with SystmOne and EMIS? All referral forms which are issued from IHT (via the CCG) should be made available in EMIS and SystmOne formats. Many forms can be found on the CCG website in the Members area. If you are using a form which is not on the website, please email the form to and we will look into ALL Spinal and MRI referral forms REMINDER: the ALL spinal form and MRI referral forms are available and can be downloaded from the CCG website. The latest version of the ALL spinal form has been included within the delegate packs. Problems with Neurology not seeing patients There are issues with under staffing in Neurology at IHT. The CCG is aware of the issue and working with IHT to solve the problem. If practices encounter any further issues, please email with the
