37 Connecting Communities Dr RICHARD POPE Airedale NHS Foundation Trust

38 NHS Yorkshire and the Humber Airedale NHS Foundation Trust Telemedicine – use, benefits and bandwidth…..

39 Long Term Conditions (LTCs) 70% NHS expenditure Increasing (numbers and complexity) People with LTCs typically travel to attend large numbers of GP and hospital appointments each year Can we find a way to reduce this / offer immediate access to clinical support?

44 Consulting in a new way

45 Our journey continues…..

46 What do our patients think? The telemed literally brought tomorrows technology into my living room today; without any need to travel I can talk to a specialist!. The system puts me in control of my diabetes care instead of my illness governing or interfering with my lifestyle. There is no expensive journey to and from hospital (2 bus journeys each way), no reorganising of work commitments to then spend time sitting around in waiting rooms: simply a live link up where I can talk freely and we can swap ideas as to how to improve my life The consultation is an active two way process…it makes a huge difference to how I feel about my diabetes and therefore about myself

47 Regional T-health Programme - Role of the Hub Distributed specialist networks

49 The Future? Reliable, fast broadband enables:- LTC patients Out patients Nursing Homes Pre/post op checks Info prescription Mobile (Paramedics) Social services Social comms ……..integrated care NEW PATHWAYS

53 The Way Forward David Cullen, Chief Executive NYnet Ltd

54 The Vision and the Challenge Our vision is to bring the advantages of high-quality broadband to 100% of businesses and citizens in North Yorkshire. We want to enable them to participate in the digital world so that they can carry out their business when and how they wish So- How do we do this: in the largest rural county (3,000 sq miles) with a dispersed population (average of 7.5 people per sq kilometre) Whilst maximising the value of the existing work NYnet core currently provided by BT Over 75% market capture of public sector Proven business and community initiatives With Public sector funding from ERDF and BDUK (but not enough)

55 Current Achievements: NYnet Core Network A carrier class network paid for by public sector use (PSN now conveying 75% of traffic) Core network sufficiently robust for wholesale backhaul MiniPoP layer currently more suited for public sector PSN

56 Proven principle at existing NYnet not spot pilots High capacity fibre provision to public sector site/ school 20-50Mb extended to digital hub in community Wireless network access infrastructure Community SP provides service at 5Mb/ 10Mb to customers Reaching the Pilot Communities

57 Business Parks Fibre to all business units at Scarborough Business Park Fibre to all business units at Scarborough Business Park 5 Business Parks under the Smart Parks Initiative 5 Business Parks under the Smart Parks Initiative 10 further businesses and parks through our channel partners and local service providers 10 further businesses and parks through our channel partners and local service providers

58 Our Proposed Approach Go to the market for Partner(s) to build us high quality broadband for today, future proofed for tomorrow Next-Generation Access in c.27 Market Towns (= 45% of households and businesses) Around 250 Digital Community Hubs, sharing backhaul with public sector requirements Average of 3 communities enabled per hub (= 50% of households and businesses Ratio of market towns to community hubs dependent on: Level of funds available Mix of technologies applied Limited

59 Market Towns technology example Serving Exchange Core Exchange Core Ring Assumed mix of 90% FTTC/ 10% FTTP (initially for EOL) May therefore have hybrid cabinets without BTOR cross- connect partners

60 Digital community hub example Serving Exchange Public Sector Site

61 Progress so far Establishment of the NextGen North Yorkshire Board with NYCC and BDUK to set and oversee the Vision and Strategy State Aid Approval to provide access and extend Points of Presence Initial indications of £25- 30m funding from BDUK and European Regional Development Fund Limited
