What does the Health and Social Care Act do? GPs will order and buy services (carry out commissioning). Frees up organisations to find new and better ways to provide services. Gives more power to patients Gives new spotlight on public health. Service providers and NHS staff will have to answer criticisms It is possibly the biggest shake up of the NHS. It has the most far-reaching changes to the NHS since it started. The Health and Social Care Act in a nutshell
More people are asking for treatment The treatment costs more Need to make the NHS better Less money from the government. Why change?
GPs will play lead role in organising services for patients. New rules will encourage services to be more creative. Patients will have a greater voice Public health will have a bigger role The NHS will have to say why patients do not get the treatment they need, locally and nationally Fewer semi independent health organisations. Key changes in the law
The focus of new commissioning system is Accountability and Outcomes = If patients do not get the treatment they need, the people that organised the service will have to say why. Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are the new statutory (legal) bodies for most commissioning Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) and Strategic Health Authorities (SHAs) have gone. The NHS Commissioning Board (NHSCB) will make sure Clinical Commissioning Groups act in the right way. The Board will also arrange for NHS treatment in the community and specialised services. Clinical Commissioning Groups have £25 for each person in England to spend on their organisations (we call this commissioning support) Clinical Commission Groups have to decide the best way to spend this, for example it could be spent on their staff.

What type of organisation is a Commissioning Support Unit? The 2013 NHS will be different –Clinical Commissioning Groups will be small and light –Commissioning Support Units will be extremely important in getting Clinical Commissioning Groups up and running and to the success of the whole commissioning system. –Commissioning Support Services are funded by Clinical Commissioning Groups and by others. –CCGs and CSUs accountable to the NHS Commissioning Board –23 Clinical Support Services in England, 3 in London CCG NHSCB CSU Services Accountability

Stressful! People are applying for new jobs or their old ones The NHS has to save £20 billion across England Local Authorities have had their money cut In Lewisham GPs are becoming more aware of how to be a commissioner However it is difficult for GPs to change from being a GP to commissioning/buying a service What’s it really like….

Support commissioners in their role – not just GPs Find gaps in the services Share best practice Share evidence of what works best Give ideas on how money can be saved to improve care Help the public to understand the changes Help the public become more involved Influence big decision makers How can the you influence the health and social care agenda
