Joint Commissioning in Devon, the Better Care Fund and Governance Arrangements pdf icon PDF 107 KB

Joint report of the Head of Adult Commissioning and Health, NEW Devon CCG and South Devon and Torbay CCG on the BCF, Quarter Return, Performance Report and Performance Summary, attached.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

The Board considered the Joint Report and presentation of the Head of Adult Commissioning and Health, NEW Devon CCG and South Devon and Torbay CCG on the Devon Better Care Fund Q2 submission to NHS England, submitted on 17 November 2017.

 

Regular reports were provided on the progress of the Devon Better Care Fund Plan to enable monitoring by the Health and Wellbeing Board.  Performance and progress was reviewed monthly by the Joint Coordinating Commissioning Group through the high level metrics reports and progress overview. 

 

The Report noted that all four national conditions had been met and that three out of four performance against national metrics were on target, including non-elective admissions, admission to residential and care homes and effectiveness of reablement.  It was noted that, despite positive improvement within the wider system, it had not been possible to meet targets for Delayed Transfers of Care (DTOC) due to reductions across the NHS Trusts.  Daily monitoring of delays had been established to identify any prevailing issues and it was noted that activity in November was close to target; however increased activity in the system during early winter would remain a challenge.

 

The trajectory of DTOC was still slightly over target, however significant improvements had been made in Devon, which had halved in the last six months, from 156.1 in June 2017 to 77.9 in November 2017.  This had required significant management and staff focus which would be challenging to maintain during the winter period.

 

RESOLVED that the Better Care fund Q2 submission be noted and endorsed.

The Board considered a report from the Chief Officer for Communities, Public Health, Environment and Prosperity on the production of the Pharmaceutical Needs Assessment (PNA) which was a comprehensive assessment of the current and future pharmaceutical needs of the local population.

  • decisions regarding which NHS funded services need to be provided by community pharmacies and dispensing appliance contractors in Devon;
  • whether new pharmacies or services are needed;
  • decision-making about the relocation of existing pharmaceutical premises in response to applications by providers of pharmaceutical services; and
  • the commissioning of locally Enhanced services from pharmacies.

 

Prior to publication, the PNA must go through a 60-day consultation period.  Consultation on the Devon PNA started on Monday 4th December 2017 via the Devon County Council Have Your Say website and would run until Friday 2 February 2018.

 

Once the consultation period had ended, a consultation report would be produced and changes to the PNA would be considered.  The final version of the PNA would then be presented and discussed at the Health and Wellbeing Board meeting scheduled for 8 March 2018.  This would enable the 2018-21 PNA to be published on or before the April 1st 2018 deadline.
