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 2:30pm – 4.00pm. 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.

Stakeholder webinar for the proposed policy: Intra-arterial Thrombectomy for Acute Ischaemic Stroke and the proposed service specification: Interventional Neuroradiology Services for Ischaemic and Haemorrhagic Stroke

Tuesday 20 June 2017 12:00pm – 1.00pm and Wednesday 28 June  4.30pm – 5.30pm.

NHS England on 19 May 2017 launched a 90 day public consultation on a clinical commissioning policy proposition for Mechanical thrombectomy for acute ischaemic stroke and a service specification for Neurointerventional services for acute ischaemic and haemorrhagic stroke.

The service specification describes how these services will be delivered and will lead to improved access for patients across the country. The service will dramatically reduce the significant burden of disability arising from some types of stroke, by providing more effective blood clot removal and improved access to specialists where other neurological interventions for stroke are needed, reducing the level and severity of damage caused to the brain.

There has already been extensive engagement on this national policy and service specification, they have been developed with the support and input of lead clinicians and patient and public representatives. This approach has helped ensure that the views of key stakeholders have informed and influenced the development of this policy and service specification to date. We now wish to test them further with wider groups of stakeholders during the public consultation.

There will be two webinars for patients and public held on:

Sustainability and Transformation Plans NHS RightCare – Where to Look Packs

Tuesday July 4, 12:00pm 

In December 2016, NHS RightCare published Intelligence data, (formerly Commissioning for Value), Where to Look packs for all STP footprint areas. The information contained in these packs is personalised for each STP footprint area and can be used to help support local discussions about prioritisation to improve the value and utilisation of resources.

Each pack includes headline opportunities, improvement opportunity tables and pathways on a page showing how CCGs in each STP differ from their peers.

This webinar will deliver an introduction to the Where to Look packs for STP areas, covering the principles of NHS RightCare Intelligence and going through example charts from one of the packs, explaining the matrix slide and what it shows, discussing the bed days and coordinated reallocation of capacity (CROC) and next steps.

Why is it important?

The packs contain powerful intelligence which STP footprints can use when looking at collective planning.  This webinar will share and explain how the information is used for STP footprints to optimise their use in planning cycles.

Who is this webinar for?

  • Senior teams
  • RightCare leads within STP teams
  • Commissioning managers
  • Planning leads
  • Performance managers
  • Business intelligence leads
  • Analysts
