CCGS WOULD LOSE THEIR COMMISSIONING POWERS UNDER LABOUR


Battle lines were drawn by politicians over who should commission care after the next election in key debates at Commissioning 2013.


Rt Hon Norman Lamb, Minister for Care and Support declared that he was passionate about integrated care and said he was absolutely determined to use his time in government to encourage health and social care professionals to work collaboratively to achieve ‘real and positive’ change. h


M What does it feel like to


But Shadow Health Secretary Rt Hon Andy Burnham said if Labour won the next election he planned to take responsibility for commissioning services away from CCGs and hand it to local authorities which he believed were better qualified to develop integrated care services.


Mr Lamb said a tranche of integrated care pioneers would be announced in September and would be given expert help and advice from a central unit. ‘Our starting place will be to say yes and try to help rather than coming up with new ways of saying no or getting in the way,’ he said.


Too often patients became trapped in hospital for


months unable to be discharged because there was no connection between primary, social and community care. ‘This is poor care, it feels too often like a dysfunctional system designed for a past age.’


‘Introducing integrated care means squeezing every last penny of value for the money that we spend and using the money we have got available to us much more effectively than we do now,’ said Mr Lamb.


Some parts of the country were showing how services could be integrated, he said, citing examples of integrated care systems in Leeds, Northumbria and Cumbria. But he said even in those places which had made good progress none had yet developed a fully integrated system of care.


i That,


‘The big paradigm shift we have got to make is from a medical model of commissioning to a social model of commissioning. That is why we have to have local government in the lead, as difficult as that is to hear for some people in the NHS.’


‘We are not going to meet the challenge of 21st century around mental health, lifestyle and ageing if we don’t make the link between health and housing, health and planning, health and


education and health and leisure. I see CCGs as advisory bodies only because commissioning is a broader job – it’s about meeting all the population’s needs. GPs only see a subset of population whereas local government has better understand of all of the needs of the population.’

Expanding on his ideas for developing integrated care, Andy Burnham said CCGs would be downgraded to an advisory role and local authorities through health and wellbeing boards would take over commissioning ‘whole person care’.

NHS ENGLAND SETS OUT ASPIRATIONS FOR GREAT CCGS


We are a much smaller organisation and w


But the concern for us has been to .


Six characteristics define great CCGs capable of securing quality and leading transformation, Rosamond Roughton, Interim National Director: Commissioning Development, NHS England, told the conference. She said CCGs should aspire to: • Have a strong sense of a CCG belonging to its members.


• Be driven by insight, learning and a strong wish to improve.


• Hold a powerful vision for change captured in practical planning.


• Demonstrate inclusive leadership of communities and patients.


• Have a culture of innovation balanced with managing risk.


• Be strong collaborators with other local


commissioners around the needs of local communities. Ms Roughton said NHS England will publish a development framework in July based on global research, best practice from other sectors and the views of leading thinkers and 60 CCG leaders, which will set out how CCGs can aspire to be ‘great’. NHS England was also working to ensure that NHS commissioners can access high quality, affordable commissioning support.


A strategy for


commissioning support services and a mobile app with a directory of services were launched at the Commissioning Show and an online directory of services will be published in September. Ms Roughton also announced that NHS England was developing a partnership with the voluntary sector to enable commissioners to tap in to the

specialist expertise available in this field. She said NHS England has also launched a consultation about


the procurement of


commissioning support covering European procurement law and how commissioners can get the best value out of commissioning support. ‘As we move from the set-up phase to getting ourselves geared up to lead transformation we are trying to create a great sector which is not just about quality today but is about transformation tomorrow. ‘It’s really important that we hang on to these principles that we have established about clinically- led, localised commissioning. That can only happen if we have some professional high quality commissioning support, that we can draw on what works, that we hang on to speed of decision-making

and that we make sure that we keep CCGs. ‘All of this needs the right levers and the right relationships and as we take this work forward this is something we will also be paying attention to,’ said Ms Roughton.
