Minutes:

The Panel welcomed Sir Andrew Morris OBE, Chief Executive of Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and Chair of the Frimley System Leadership Reference Group, and Dr. Andrew Whitfield, Chair and Clinical Lead of NHS North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), who had been invited to attend to provide Members with further information on the Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).  The invitation had been made in response to the following Notice of Motion submitted to the Council meeting on 8th December, 2016:

 

"Aware of the dangers facing future funding of the National Health Service, this Council calls on the Frimley Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP) to consult members as a matter of urgency about the gaps identified in the National Health Service locally, the priorities for the next five years, the initiatives in the next 18 months, the difficulties in recruiting staff, and the financing of plans going forward."

 

Sir Andrew Morris advised the Panel that the NHS had overspent by £2bn in 2015/16 and, in order to address the funding crisis, the country had been split into 44 footprints to reform health services.  The Frimley health and care planning footprint covered five CCG areas: Slough; NHS Windsor, Ascot & Maidenhead; Bracknell & Ascot; Surrey Heath; and, North-East Hampshire and Farnham.  Each of the 44 areas was required to produce a STP to deliver a five year forward view of better health, better patient care and improved efficiency.  There were a number of partners involved in delivering the STP including NHS commissioners, acute care providers, mental health and community providers, GP Federations, GP out of hours providers, ambulance trusts and local authorities.

 

The Frimley five year forward view identified three gaps facing the NHS which were health and wellbeing, care and quality and finance and efficiency.  The STP provided a local system response on how the gaps would be addressed.  There were five priorities identified in the Frimley STP:

 

Priority 1 - Making a substantial step change to improve wellbeing, increase prevention, self-care and early detection

 

Priority 2 - Action to improve long-term condition outcomes including greater self-management and proactive management across all providers for people with single long term conditions

 

Priority 3 - Frailty Management: Proactive management of frail patients with multiple complex physical and mental health long-term conditions, reducing crises and prolonged hospital stays

 

Priority 4 - Redesigning urgent and emergency care, including integrated working and primary care models providing timely care in the most appropriate place

 

Priority 5 - Reducing variation and health inequalities across pathways to improve outcomes and maximise value for citizens across the population, supported by evidence

 

Work was well underway to identify ways of delivering solutions to meet the priorities and there were a number of local examples of where improvements were already being delivered.  One example was working with Hampshire County Council to enable Frimley to provide care packages for patients to speed up the process of getting patients back into their own homes.  The good practice examples making the  ...  view the full minutes text for item 19.
