The National Perspective Dr Alison Austin Personalisation Lead NHS England
www.england.nhs.uk Personal Health Budgets – the national picture 15 October 2014
www.england.nhs.uk help people live with their long term conditions and stay out of hospital, change the relationship, enable people to use NHS funding in different ways, not new monies, focus on outcomes, centre around a care plan which is agreed by NHS, are regularly reviewed to ensure needs are being met and money is spent as agreed, are not suitable for all NHS Care 6 Personal health budgets – new for the NHS
www.england.nhs.uk The independent evaluation of personal health budgets has shown that they can lead to improved quality of life whilst meeting health needs and being cost effective (even saving money for some)
In addition……. The national personal budget survey (POET) involving 195 PHB holders and 117 carers across 12 sites showed that: 73% reported a positive impact on independence 69% reported a positive impact on health 70% carers reported a positive impact on their own quality of life Knowing the budget up front is important A staged approach is being taken to rollout across England
www.england.nhs.uk Personal Health Budgets: The Commitments NHS Mandate Objective: “by 2015… more people managing own health… everyone with LTCs including MH, offered a personalised care plan… patients who could benefit have the option to hold a personal health budget… information to make fully informed decisions.” Legal Duties: from October 2014 everyone receiving NHS Continuing Healthcare will have the “right to have” for a personal health budget.
www.england.nhs.uk What we know: they work best for those with higher levels of need people with higher levels of need are more likely to need both health and social care support They are applicable to mental and physical health They reduce unplanned care They are not right for all NHS Services 10 What the Mandate means: Who benefits?
If you’re going to do it… do it right 11 Evaluation - benefits of personal health budgets depend on how they were introduced. Best results – people know budget up front; advice and support available; choice and flexibility over how to spend budget, choice on how it is managed. Scale-up - challenge of maintaining the integrity of the values. To work well, personal health budgets need good support from all parts of the system co-production with people with direct experience
www.england.nhs.uk Meeting the Mandate commitment: Getting ready in NHS Continuing Healthcare Every CCG (211) signed up to support programme Over 170 CCGs have attended the accelerated development programme 188 have accessed small amount of additional funding Markers of Progress – currently being used by over 80%
Integrated Personal Commissioning (IPC) Builds on 2 Core elements: Care model: Person-centred care and care planning, combined with an optional personal health and social care budget Financial model: An integrated, “year of care” capitated payment model Aims to: Improves quality of life and increase person-centered care Reduce crisis and unplanned care Increase integration Aimed at: Children and young people with complex needs People with LTCs and complex needs People with learning disabilities with high support needs People with significant mental health needs Joint working NHS England will work in partnership with range partners including: LGA, ADASS, TLAP Monitor, PHE, NHS IQ Voluntary sector including Strategic Partners, & National Voices People with lived experience Programme Board and Governance is being established Core Implementation Group developing plans, working with range partners Timeline IPC announced on 9 July Prospectus published on 4 Sept Applications in by 7 Nov Selection process complete Dec 2014 Models to be operational by April 2015 Evaluation through 2015-17
