WHAT ARE THE STRATEGIC ISSUES TO CONSIDER(including contribution toward
TTBT, and Principal Objectives)?

Achieving compliance with the Essential standards of quality and safety is the minimum
standard required. The CQC Registration Process contributes to the achievement of the
Trust’s strategic objectives and achieving top ten status.

Our vision – what success will look like?

         To be one of the 10 best mental health Trusts in the UK

         Our business priorities – how we will thrive in the market

         Priority 1: to maintain our current customer base and income by giving quality to
         service users and value to customers
         Priority 2: to develop new services for existing customers
         Priority 3: to develop new customers
         Priority 4: to make public benefit contributions back to the communities we serve

         Our key strategies for the next 3-5 years – what we will do to deliver success

         1.   Continuously modernise all our services
         2.   Improve the measured quality of services year on year
         3.   Build & maintain strong financial and business management
         4.   Make the Trust a great place for great people to work
         5.   Give public benefit back to the communities we serve

WHAT ARE THE LEGAL ISSUES (including diversity and equality, employment law,
health and safety, and other statutory obligations)?

The Trust has a responsibility to provide services in line with key legislation, including;

        Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 & 2008
        The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007
        The Human Rights Act 2000
        Mental Health Act 1983 & 2007
        Health and Social Care Act 2008
        Care Quality Commission ( Registration) Regulations 2009

WHAT OTHER KEY ISSUES NEED TO BE CONSIDERED, IN PARTICULAR HOW DOES
THIS DEMONSTRATE ACCOUNTABILITY TO STAKEHOLDERS / CUSTOMER FOCUS?

The outcome from the assessment of compliance against Registration should inform the
business planning process, with regards to priority investment.

Standards for Better Health are minimum standards required and although they have been
replaced by registration, the principles which underpin them will be important building blocks
towards achieving CQC Registration in April 2010.

The new registration system for health and adult social care will make sure that people can
expect services to meet essential standards of quality and safety that respect their dignity
and protect their rights. The new system is focused on outcomes rather than systems and
processes, and places the views and experiences of people who use services at its centre.

WHAT ARE THE RESOURCE AND RISK IMPLICATIONS?

Having an effective quality strategy and performance framework in place mitigates risk and
reduces harm to both staff and patients. Failure to provide effective quality and risk
management places the organisation at the risk of potential:

    1.       Financial risks through litigation
    2.       Loss of reputation
    3.       Loss of business
    4.       Risk of harm to staff and patients

WHAT ASSURANCE DOES THIS ITEM OFFER THE BOARD REGARDING SELF-
CERTIFICATION ISSUES?

Registration will underpin a locally led, patient centred and clinically driven NHS as set out in
the NHS Next Stage Review. Being registered demonstrates to our service users and the
Trust’s local community how our services, meet essential standards of quality and safety;
respect their dignity and protect their rights

WHAT ARE THE TIMESCALES ASSOCIATED WITH THIS ISSUE?

        4th-29th January 2010- NHS Trusts to evidence as part of application for
         registration.
        February-March 2010- CQC may wish to talk to trusts about their application and
         may ask them to supply more evidence to support their application.
        1st April 2010 The results of the NHS trust applications for registration will be made
         public.

POLICY IMPLICATIONS

Registration will have implications for policy development and implementation in SMHP.

                          A multi-stakeholder initiative is developing CAMHS strategy and service
                          specifications with active involvement of users and carers. This has led to the
                          creation of a new service for looked-after young people.

                          Participation has covered planning of

                          and continuing Service User and Carer involvement.

                          The core groups will continue work on the project during the build and
                          commissioning phases to ensure a seamless transition across from the
                          current to the new facilities.

                          New services such as IAPT are a response to local and national user surveys
                          and feedback on the accessibility of psychological therapies; this service links
                          directly with Job centre plus and a range of voluntary and community
                          organisations to meet individual service user needs

                          We facilitate involvement in business planning and strategic thinking
                          throughout the organisation by providing access, time, training and liaison.
                          The service user and carer forums provide a structured environment for
                          eliciting feedback and involvement. These consider feedback from the service
                          user survey and plan actions accordingly.

                          We collaborate with third sector organisations Joint advisory groups and
                          partnership forums with a special interest in mental health where people’s
                          feedback helps us re-design provision and care pathways.

                          Community meetings, independently chaired, and access to advocacy provide
                          additional routes for participation in planning and prioritisation.

applying to register?)    In LD, Users and carers have played a central role in changing how services
                          are delivered. Through Forums, the complaints process, and individual
                          representations – supported by independent advocacy – the service is
                          undergoing comprehensive change that we see the closure of hospital-based

                          and staff are exploring together how to re-design layouts, improve

                          review of advocacy services and provision. Support will be offered to
                          encourage wider user participation in the Trust’s service user and carer forum

                          Patient-reported outcome measures begin to offer the opportunity to provide
                          measurable feedback on the quality of treatment. Teams will enhance the use
                          of CORC and TOPS outcome measures, exploring individual clinical practice
                          and benchmarking against other services. The Trust intends to extend
                          PROMs to all clinical areas in 2010-11.

                          Implementing the Dementia care strategy will involve systematic engagement

                          will monitor all aspects of service delivery and performance to support teams
                          in learning from user views and experience.

                          Re-design of the Psychosis care pathway will actively engage service users
                          and carers

                          Users will be involved in evaluating the new ‘Gateway’ care pathway for
                          accessing specialist mental health services

                          Every clinical area will complete Equality Impact Assessment action plans;
                          enabling us to identify and respond constructively to marginalised
                          communities and to improve our sensitivity to cultural diversity


Section 2.4 EQUALITY, DIVERSITY AND HUMAN RIGHTS:

The application asks the following

How does the Trust ensure people's equality, diversity and human rights are actively
promoted in your services?

How do you ensure         We recognise that the need to access mental health services can be
that the promotion of     stigmatising. The plan to relocate many in-patient services contiguous with
equality, diversity       acute hospital services is designed to minimise stigma. Through WHALE, the
and human rights          community consultation project, we seek to raise awareness and better inform

plans?                    Through person centred planning users and carers are involved in all aspects
                          of service re-development, including the planning of care in a way that
                          respects gender and cultural differences, and makes provision for the needs of
                          different faiths and beliefs to be met. All new proposals are subject to Equality
                          Impact assessments and must thereby demonstrate how they promote the
                          EDHR agenda.

                          EIAs are undertaken for all service development, project planning, staff
                          training, individual clinical assessment and formulation of clinical intervention

                          The Board receives regular reports from the Equality and Diversity Manager.
                          The patient survey also provides information helpful to planning.

                          The Trust has adopted a common core agenda for all business and
                          governance meetings to help ensure that EDHR agenda is central to
                          discussion at team level.

                          We use our website to share information and plans and seek feedback from all
                          communities across Suffolk.

                          St Clements also has access to the Trust’s EDHR reference group

How does the              EDHR has influenced both the information we seek about people, and the
promotion of              information we offer about services and treatments. The collection of
equality, diversity       demographic data and clinical assessment have both been modified to reflect
and human rights          EDHR concerns.

                          and respect, zero tolerance, bullying and complaints.

                          Our membership of Stonewall includes external and independent inspection of
                          our sensitivity to LGBT issues.

                          EIA action plans identify key issues and appropriate service responses, eg the
                          need for provision of hearing loops to aid communication.

                          Staff Induction and mandatory training courses for all staff facilitate a common,
                          basic, understanding of Equality, Diversity and the FREDA principles.

                          Design and delivery of CPA and risk assessment is built around EDHR. Our
                          offender patients are identified as vulnerable so we routinely invite legal
                          representatives to attend CPA, and that reports are drafted with explicit
                          reference to Winterwerp criteria

                          Information on Human Rights and anti-stigma posters are available to users
                          and carers and in all premises. We discuss ECHR issues regularly with
                          individual patients. We can evidence the discharge of patients related directly

                          CMHTs support people’s access to general healthcare, encouraging GP
                          registration and access to health screening, dentistry etc.

                          Our “Centre for Forensic Studies” certificate and diploma programme has a
                          Human Rights component module, and a Women and Gender module. This
                          builds upon the in house training and induction in human rights and

                          We will complete Equality Impact assessments for all clinical and non-clinical
                          service areas, and develop and monitor action planning for issues that arise.

                          We shall complete Equality Impact Statements for all Trust policies and
                          strategies, ensuring that they are reviewed and revised where necessary. All
                          future policy initiatives will be subject to an EIA as part of the design and
                          implementation process.

                          We will work with partners to identify and respond to community and public
                          health issues related to mental health care, in particular considering equity of
                          access and the cultural responsiveness of our services. We shall use ethnicity
                          data to review access issues and explore ways in which PROMS can help us
                          ensure equity of access to all.

                          We shall further consider how governance tools such as clinical audit and
                          supervision can support the embedding of EDHR principles

Regulated activity and compliance

The guidance about compliance for providers illustrates how each of the regulations may
be reliably met. Providers may decide on alternative approaches but should be prepared
to justify and evidence to the Care Quality Commission how the chosen approach is
equally or more effective in ensuring the regulations are met.

The Trust is asked to declare whether we are fully compliant or non compliant with the
Registration Regulations relevant to the regulated activities the Trust provides.

A Trust who will be compliant with the registration regulations will meet the outcomes for
people who use services as set out in the guidance about compliance. Evidence to
support the declaration must be available on request.

 A Trust who is non-compliant has not met elements of the registration regulations as
described by the outcome statements in the guidance about compliance.

A declaration of compliance must be completed for each location in which regulated
activities are carried out.

 For each regulation where non compliance is identified the Trust needs to state
- Why we are non compliant
- The action to be taken to become compliant

- When will we become compliant?
- How will we sustain a level of compliance?

At the mid year declaration, submitted to the CQC in December 2007, SMHP declared
itself non-compliant with the following standards

        C1b Patient safety alerts
         Healthcare organisations protect patients through systems that ensure that
         patient safety notices, alerts and other communications concerning patient
         safety which require action areacted upon within required time-scales.

        C4d Medicines management
         Healthcare organisations keep patients, staff and visitors safe by having
         systems to ensure that medicines are handled safely and securely

        C5d Clinical audit
         Healthcare organisations ensure that clinicians participate in regular clinical
         audits and review of clinical services.

        C20b safe, secure environment
         Healthcare services are provided in environments which promote effective
         care and optimise health outcomes by being supportive of patient privacy and
         confidentiality.

        C21 clean, well designed environments
         Healthcare services are provided in environments which promote effective
         care and optimise health outcomes by being well designed and well
         maintained with cleanliness levels in clinical and non-clinical areas that meet
         with national specification for clean NHS premises.

    Proposed declaration of compliance

    A CQC Registration action plan is now in place to ensure that improvements in
    practice are implemented and processes are improved to ensure the Trust will
    achieve compliance with Section 20 of the Health and Social Care Act 2008.

    At the time of applying for registration, there is insufficient assurance that SMHPT
    is fully compliant with the all the necessary Regulations. The table below
    proposes that
