Slide 1 - One East Midlands by xiaohuicaicai


									                Towards Excellence:
Driving up Quality Across the East Midlands

             Health and Social Care Conference
                              25 February 2010

                  Main Themes

• Why has the NHS been so poor at engaging the
  third sector?

• What is changing?

• The quality and productivity challenge
            ‘Failure’ of Commissioning

NHS has ‘commissioned’ for two decades, but …

• Commissioners’ capability has been limited
• Few levers, not well used
• Inadequate regulatory regime – bail out of NHS providers
• Low investment in developing commissioners
• Highly variable & fragmented practice
• Lack of legitimacy (linked to ‘voice’ & patient /public engagement)
• Very limited range of providers
                          An unfair playing field

• Lack of awareness amongst commissioners of the Third Sector
• Inconsistency of procurement and regulatory practices
• Great variation in when/whether to use grants or contracts
• Burden of disproportionate procurement practices – pre-qualification
  requirements, guarantees/bonds
• Poor funding practice: lack of full cost recovery > ‘subsidy’
• Poor funding practice: short-termism = barrier to investment
• Burden of disproportionate monitoring

The Commissioning Framework
for Health and Well-being
                      Assuring high quality
                    providers for all services

Obstacle:         Providers are sometimes unwilling or unable to
                  provide new and innovative services
•   Commissioning focused on outcomes
•   Wider range of providers
•   Develop effective, strong partnerships with providers
•   Transparent and fair procurement
•   More innovative provision, tailored to the needs of individuals (engage
    providers in needs assessments)
•   Intelligent decommissioning
             Quality & Productivity Challenge
• The population has increased 24% over the 60 years of the NHS
• More people now over pension age than under 16
• By 2031 the 75+ population will double to 8.2 million
• Half of babies born today will live to be 100
• Men and women live 10 years longer than in 1948
• Time lived with a limiting illness or disability has increased by over
  two years in past decade
• Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia will double in a generation
• Demographic change will cost the NHS £1.1–1.4 bn extra each year

                            Our Aim

• The aim of the Towards Excellence programme is to
  drive up the quality of healthcare across the East
  Midlands, and ensure we have the resources to meet the
  challenges of:

   –   Demographic change
   –   Increasing costs of drugs and technology
   –   Rising demand
   –   Growing expectations

                    Responding to the Challenge

  quality improvements
• Access to the data on the website is currently restricted
• It will gradually be opened to all

                    Our Next Steps

• Establish priority work streams, with high quality
• Set up PMO
• Develop detailed plan for each initiative
• Develop county health system assurance plans
• Closer alignment with local government / social care
• Produce SHA Delivery Plan
• Widespread communication and engagement
