4 Background & Context National Service Framework for Older People – Aim Provide integrated services to promote faster recovery from illness Prevent unnecessary acute hospital admissions Support timely discharge and maximise independent living. Standard Older people will have access to a new range of intermediate care services at home or in designated care settings, to promote their independence by providing enhanced services from the NHS and councils to prevent unnecessary hospital admission and effective rehabilitation services to enable early discharge from hospital and to prevent premature or unnecessary admission to long-term residential care.
5 Case for Change Health Select Committee Report on Social Care Focused heavily on Integration: Misconception “typical” service user is a healthy adult with an episode of care Older people are the “typical” users of services – 29% of population, but 50% of GP appointments and 70 per cent of all inpatient bed days Older people and those with long term conditions experience fragmented services Called for integration around older people with just a single local commissioner Called for greater merging of Government funding streams Repeated attempts to improve integration “The Committee welcomes Government support for this objective but is concerned that progress continues to be disappointing”
6 Case for Change Changing Service Models, Behaviours and Ways of Working? Audit Commission Report on the Health & Social Care Interface Atlas of Variation in NHS and also for Social Care Institute for Public Care – Oxford Brookes University Kings Fund-Nuffield Trust Report to the NHS Future Forum –Setting a clear, ambitious and measurable goal to improve the experience of patients and service users - to be treated as a ‘must do’ priority –Offering guarantees to patients with complex needs - agreed care plan, a named case manager, access to telehealth & telecare, a personal health budget etc –Integrated care must be delivered at scale and pace. Social Care White Paper and SR Monies Is Gov reducing barriers?
