We are responsible for listening to our local community to ensure we understand their needs, planning how we invest to ensure effective services, and improving local health services to enable North West Surrey people to enjoy the best possible health. What does our CCG do? Our Main Providers are Ashford & St Peters Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Virgin Care for community health services Surrey and Borders Partnership NHS Foundation Trust for mental health and learning disability services South East Coast Ambulance Services We are responsible for commissioning Planned (often called Elective ) hospital care Rehabilitation care Urgent and emergency care Most community health services Mental health and learning disabilities We do not commission the following services, but we work closely with the relevant commissioners Primary care services – NHS England Specialist services – Specialist Commissioners Public health services – Surrey CC We work with: Patients and the public Local authorities and other stakeholders, including voluntary groups Other CCGs Other healthcare professionals 4
Our Vision To enable all North West Surrey people to enjoy the best possible health. We are seeking to transform service delivery, focused on better outcomes for patients, with decisions taken by GPs and listening to the voices of our patients and stakeholders. Our Strategic Objectives 1. Increase length of life and prevent people from dying prematurely 2. Improve quality of life and promote independence 3. Optimise the integration, quality and effectiveness of services 4. Help people recover from ill-health 5. Target spend for greatest gain and eliminate waste Our Vision
Our Core Values We are accountable to our population and our members We are open and transparent in decision making We value quality and patient experience in everything we do We value strong clinical leadership and engaged clinicians We value relationships with patients, providers and stakeholders We will promote good governance and proper stewardship of public resources in pursuance of our goals and in meeting statutory duties 6
Why are we proposing change? CCGs responsible for commissioning services to meet needs of local population NHS England responsible for Primary Care (amongst other services) Local Enhanced Services currently an adjunct to Primary Care contracts thus need to commission as local services subject to CCG control and leadership. Opportunity to align with wider strategic direction
All existing LES and Tier 2 services reviewed Multi agency steering group evaluated service and proposed route to market as appropriate Patient representative and LMC involved throughout All service specifications have been revised in the context of the emerging strategic objectives of the organisation via a clinically led sub group(s) Corporate approval gained to recommendations Designing a new service
Safe, effective, high quality services Locally accessible, convenient services Patient choice available at point of referral Innovative use of technology and service delivery models Delivery of defined outcome measures and strategic objectives What are our service aims?
Improved patient access and experience - “right care, right place, first time” High quality care in a sustainable ‘best value’ system Better clinical outcomes, delivered where possible within a ‘one stop’ pathway Greater consistency of care through improved service specifications and equality of provision across the CCG Plurality within the market to drive improvements in quality and patient experience What are the expected benefits of change?
The Government has specifically committed to extending patient choice of Any Qualified Provider (AQP) for appropriate services. AQP means that when patients are referred, usually by their GP, for a particular service, they should be able to choose from a list of qualified providers who meet NHS service quality requirements, prices and normal contractual obligations. What is Any Qualified Provider?
The following principles govern an AQP approach to contracting for services: 1.Providers qualify and register to provide services via an assurance process that tests providers’ fitness to offer NHS funded services: 2.Commissioners set local pathways and referral protocols which providers must accept. 3.Referring clinicians offer patients a choice of qualified providers for the service being referred to 4.Competition is based on quality, not price. Providers are paid a fixed price determined by a national or local tariff (where no national tariff exists). 5.Providers receive no volume guarantees and are paid on an activity basis only. The Principles of AQP
Allows the market to be as open as possible Allows both existing and new providers to enter the market Allows all qualified providers to compete for services on the basis of ‘quality’ rather than ‘price’ Facilitates better patient choice Is a ‘leaner’ process for the commissioner What are the benefits of AQP?
