PET-CT Phase II design of procurement – engagement report

NHS England conducted a 30 day period of engagement in 2016 to test the proposed design of the Phase II procurement.  Having listened to the feedback received through the engagement exercise and having undertaken significant further work on the proposed design of Phase II, NHS England is now publishing an engagement report which summarises the feedback received from the engagement process and how NHS England has listened to patients, the public and other stakeholders in the way it will carry out the procurement.

NHS England is committed to involving people in the consideration of service change proposals and is mindful of its duty in this regard. Therefore, alongside the public engagement report, there will be a number of webinars offered to members of the public and patient organisations. This will provide an opportunity to ask questions and receive further information about the Phase II procurement. These will take place ahead of the procurement commencing.

A previous webinar took place on 24 April, the final webinar to take place is below, please click on the link to register.

Planning and implementing the national 2017-19 CQUIN – Indicator 4: Improving services for people with mental health needs who present to A&E

Monday 19 June, 2:30pm – 4.00pm

The new set of national CQUINs for 2017-19 includes an indicator for improving services for people with mental health needs who present to A&E (indicator 4).  The aims and deliverables of this CQUIN are as follows:

  • Reduce by 20% the number of attendances to A&E for those within a selected cohort of frequent attenders who would benefit from mental health and psychosocial interventions, and establish improved services to ensure this reduction is sustainable (2017/18), and sustain this (2018/19);
  • Reduce total number of attendances to A&E by 10% for all people with primary mental health needs (2018/19).

This webinar to support planning and implementation of this scheme is targeted mainly at acute provider staff working in Emergency Departments and at mental health provider staff (including acute hospital liaison mental health teams) who are responsible for delivering the CQUIN – although collaboration with other partners (primary care, police, ambulance, substance misuse, social care, voluntary sector) is likely to be essential. We have an excellent line up almost fully confirmed, with the draft agenda as follows:

  1.  Introduction by the national team
  2.  A former frequent user of A&E: service user experiences
  3. North West London liaison mental health team/Hertfordshire liaison mental health team/Hampshire policing colleagues working on the SIM (Serenity Integrated Mentoring) and the High Intensity Network programmes: how have we gone about successfully planning for and achieving similar local CQUIN schemes for frequent attenders?
  4.  Cambridgeshire and Peterborough: how have we gone about successfully planning for and achieving initiatives to reduce attendances for people with primary mental health needs?
  5.  Q&A and discussion

The webinar will take place on Monday 19 June from 2:30-4pm. Places are limited so to register your interest, or for any queries, please email the Adult Mental Health team at england.adultmh@nhs.net by no later than 5.00pm on Wednesday 14 June. We plan to record the webinar and make available the recording afterwards.
