Frimley Sustainability and Transformation Partnership (STP) and Integrated Care System

Sir Andrew Morris, former Chief Executive of NHS Frimley Heath Foundation Trust, to provide an update on the Frimley STP and Integrated Care System. 

Minutes:

The Panel welcomed Sir Andrew Morris OBE, former Chief Executive of NHS Frimley Health Foundation Trust, who had been invited to attend to provide Members with an update on the Frimley Health Integrated Care System (ICS) which had evolved from the Frimley Sustainability and Transformation Plan (STP).  The Panel was advised that Frimley Heath ICS was one of the leading bodies aiming to bring together the providers and commissioners of all health services, social care, public health and the voluntary sector to work in partnership to create a different model and approach to delivery to improve health and care in their area.  The views of clinical and professional leads, as well as the current workforce, had helped to co-design all service changes and developments.  The Panel was advised that the main ambition of the ICS was that people living in the Frimley system would have the best possible health and wellbeing, keeping them healthy and in their homes for longer. 

 

Sir Andrew explained that the budget of £1.2 billion for a population of 800,000 had some specific targets such as promoting the apprenticeship model and helping staff move more freely around the system with appropriate training and education.  The Panel noted that the ICS was promoting a new model of care which would mean that fewer services were delivered in an acute provider setting, such as a hospital, and more delivered at home, in a community-based care facility or in GP surgeries.  Sir Andrew reported that the system was already showing decreases in accident and emergency attendances and non emergency admissions. 

 

The Panel thanked Sir Andrew Morris for attending the meeting and for his comprehensive update, which was NOTED.

E-consult initiative

Dr Andy Whitfield, Chair and Clinical Lead of NHS North East Hampshire and Farnham Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), to update the Panel on the e-consult initiative.

Minutes:

The Panel welcomed 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 an update on the eConsult initiative which aimed to use online technology to improve patient access, GP practice efficiency and commissioner value.  This was based on using the surgery’s own website to provide self-help and online consultation options, backed by the patient’s own medical record.  The Panel noted that this was being rolled out in stages with some local surgeries already using it live and receiving positive feedback from patients.

 

The Panel thanked Dr Whitfield for attending the meeting and for his informative presentation, which was NOTED.
