6 Recent BCF Guidance outlines changes to: – Clearer articulation of evidence, delivery chain and shift in activity away from acute – Clearer focus on risks, risk sharing and contingency – Alignment of BCF with other local plans – Resource for protection of social care and implementation of the new Care Act – Evidence of provider engagement – Pay for performance – Emergency admissions

7 Pay for performance Focus solely on the reduction of hospital admissions Shift from avoidable emergency admissions to total emergency admissions £1 billion of NHS contribution nationally HWBB expected to propose performance pot based on local ambition Initial expectation was 3.5% reduction – further guidance outlines when lower target can be agreed – many agreeing about 2%.

12 ..We need to invest in health not hospitals… At present more than 90% of patient contacts with the NHS occur outside hospitals but 60% of the NHS budget is spent within them. And within that, a further 60-70% of hospital bed days relate to long term conditions- whose incidence is expected to double over the next 20 years. – CBI (2010) Best Of Health: Improving lives through smarter care ‘Hospitals are increasingly unable to meet the needs of the modern healthcare system whose key challenge is to improve the quality of life of people with long term conditions; not the 20th century challenge of providing short episodes of short term care to reduce mortality rates from major diseases’ – Reform (2010) ‘Fewer Hospitals More Competition
