An expanded role for community pharmacy in the arena of health promotion both in pharmacies and in the community. Maintenance of existing and implementation of new screening and immunisation programmes where supported by clinical evidence. Support for the health promotion and prevention role played by Allied Health Professionals, particularly with older people. Incentivisation of Intergrated Care Partnerships to support evidence based health promotion, for example, clinician-led education programmes in the community.

Increase support services for carers. Extension of reablement schemes to reduce hospital stays for older people. Increase the use of Independent/Voluntary sector. 7

Support for self-care approaches.Use of new technology – telemedicine/ electronic care record (ECR). Personal care planning.GP direct hospital admissions. A multi-disciplinary approach – coordinated through GP surgeries. 8

Closer working between hospital and community paediatricians. 10

11 Key Recommendations – Family and child care Emphasis on new Headstart programme for 0– 5 years. Strengthening CAMHS services. Early intervention – family support model. Increase use of fostercare resulting in a move away from residential care. Promotion of positive parenting. 11

14 Key Recommendations – Acute care Establish a Northern Ireland-wide trauma network with RVH as the hub, RVH should become a regional trauma centre. Consider establishment of emergency telephone number other than 999; professional advice, redirect to appropriate service. Move towards having between 5 and 7 acute hospital facilities or networks. A managed clinical pathway for pathology. Better, more targeted communications on the range of unscheduled services, appropriate to need. Range of care services available closer to home – GPs to handle some outpatient appointments. Direct admissions for chronic conditions. More procedures undertaken as day cases. Pivotal emergency care management role for NIAS. Clinical networks supported by use of new technology – diagnostics/ telemedicine. 14
