Addiction to Medicines 28/02/13 Mark Gillyon ADDICTION TO MEDICINES: COMMISSIONING IN THE NEW PUBLIC HEALTH LANDSCAPE
Overview Key Policy drivers and context The architecture Public Health England local Health & Wellbeing Boards and Clinical Commissioning Groups Opportunities and challenges
3 Key policy drivers National Drug Strategy 2010 Health & Social Care Act 2012 Localism Transparency and accountability Public health and health inequalities Recovery
2010 drug strategy: …all services are commissioned with the following best practice outcomes in mind Freedom from dependence on drugs or alcohol; Prevention of drug related deaths and blood borne viruses; A reduction in crime and re-offending; Sustained employment; The ability to access and sustain suitable accommodation; Improvement in mental and physical health and wellbeing; Improved relationships with family members, partners and friends; and The capacity to be an effective and caring parent.
Health & Social Care Act 2012 Clinicians at the centre of commissioning Provider innovation Empowering patients New focus on Public Health Patient voice - Healthwatch
This shift will provide a platform for a more integrated approach to improving public health outcomes. This approach addresses the root causes and wider determinants of drug dependence and alcohol misuse, and the harm and impact they have on communities and troubled families (such as mental health, employment, education, crime and housing). It also delivers the greatest gains for individuals and the community. (NTA/DH 2012)

12 Architecture Specialist drugs and alcohol services (inc. Addiction to Medicines) commissioned by local authorities, through Directors of Public Health Supported by and coordinated through Health & Wellbeing Boards Joint Strategic Needs Assessments (JSNAs) and Joint Health and Wellbeing Strategies (JHWSs) Ring fenced public health budget From DH & Public Health England (PHE) NTA functions transferred to PHE –April 2013 Public health outcome indicators
Clinical Commissioning Groups Clinical commissioners have a crucial role to play in ensuring that care is integrated and delivered in the community, with maximum input of local people and patients. Also, by working to overcome the barriers between the NHS and social care, they will be able to provide patients with better, seamless and more accessible care. Dr Michael Dixon, Chairman of the NHS Alliance (18 June 2011).
Clinical Commissioning Groups NHS Commissioning Board Guidance & tools, evidence Commissioning of core, general medical care NHS services commissioned by groups of GPs CCGs are responsible for care, and commissioning enhanced care Continuous improvements in quality Reducing inequalities Choice & patient involvement Innovation & research Collaboration with Health & Wellbeing Boards Focus on outcomes Universal system All practices involved
13/14 and 14/15 Budgets released £2.66 billion and £2.79 billion to LAs to spend on public health services for their local populations. Average growth of 5.5% in 2013-14 and 5.0% in 2014-15 Currently, on average, about one third of spending is connected to mandated services, leaving a significant opportunity to commission services that meet the needs of your population. Services not currently covered by the mandating regulations include obesity, smoking cessation and substance misuse. Mandated: sexual health services; duty to ensure there are plans in place to protect the health of the population; public health advice to NHS commissioners; National Child Measurement Programme; NHS Health Check.
The Public Health Grant Local authorities will need to forecast and report against the sub- categories of spend in returns to Public Health England who will review them on behalf of the Department of Health. Pace of change to a target budget position (12/13 PTB formula will affect target position within pace of change parameters) Substance misuse component includes: PTB; DH DIP; YP; local drug and alcohol spend Prison treatment to NHS Commissioning Board HO DIP funding (£35M) to Police and Crime Comissioners
19 More opportunities and challenges Balanced systems – maintaining gains Priorities competing for scarce resources Commissioning skills: making the case for investment and developing alliances Complexity, dual diagnosis and health Medicines and new drugs and patterns of use Creativity – ABCD, social enterprises, recovery communities Engage PCCs, local Police and the crime reduction agenda
