18 Tools to share End of POPP programme report Monitoring and evaluation toolkit Older people involvement toolkit Just released: National POPP evaluation, incl. 4 generic business cases for preventative interventions

19 Learnings to share re Partnership work Directly engage with older people (co- production) Use evidence base/good practice for design Clearly define and resource projects Use partners effectively - Health and VCS (and beyond) Good performance tools

20 Learnings to share re Partnership work cont. Agree your approach to joint investment/sustainability: Close alignment to commissioning plans – cautious exposure to non-core business Proven reductions in emergency care usage but not released spend from acute provision ie be realistic Use an Investment/Disinvestment tool

21 Does this approach scale-up to support further integration? Yes (we think!) Our next step – Integration Plan for Health, Social Care & Wellbeing Big Ticket items – Intermediate Care/re- ablement, Dementia, LTC, etc Add Value items – Quality of Life and personalisation Efficiency items – commissioning resource and back office
