  • 3. 1 Executive Summary This strategy sets out NHS Bradford and Airedale Community Health Services (BACHS) Patient Experience and Engagement Strategy for the period 2010-2015. The strategy sets out how we will capture, listen to and respond to patient, carer and public feedback on their experiences, views and opinions of our service. “There is more to do to give patients the high quality care they deserve. We need significant expansion of the measurement of patients’ satisfaction with individual services, so staff can understand and improve the service they provide to patients.”(The operating framework for the NHS in England 2010/11, Department of Health 2009) The strategy will align with BACHS 5 Years Strategic Business Plan, by contributing to the BACHS vision “to be the provider of choice for the delivery of high quality community based services that delivery positive outcomes for those people who access our care”. This strategic plan firstly reaffirms BACHS vision, value and explain why the strategy exists. It then outlines the key objectives of the strategy and sets out how these strategic objectives will be met. The balanced score card has been developed to help translate the strategy into specific measures and targets with robust monitoring and review. Your views on this strategic plan are important to us, and we are keen to hear from you. Please let us know your comments by e-mailing Fiona.Sherburn@bradford.nhs.uk. Your opinions will be listened to and changes will be made where necessary prior to formal implementation of this strategic plan.

  • 4. 2 Introduction This document sets out Bradford and Airedale Community Health’s Patient Experience and Engagement Strategy for the period 2009 – 2014. The strategy sets out how we will capture, listen to and respond to patient, carer and public feedback on their experiences, views and opinions of our service. Patient Experience is defined by the Department of Health as ‘We want an NHS that not only meets their physical needs but our emotional needs too. This means getting good treatment in a comfortable, caring and safe environment, delivered in a calm and reassuring way. Having information to make choices to feel confident and to feel in control and being talked to and listened to as an equal; being treated with honesty, respect and dignity’. (Now I Feel Tall, Department of Health 2007) The overarching aims of this strategy are to contribute to improving the health of the people of Bradford and Airedale and improving the quality of our service. The strategy aims to ensure that this work contributes to improving the health of the local population, to increasing understanding of healthcare services and improving the delivery of those services. Through the delivery of the strategy effective patient engagement will result in:- • Improved outcomes in terms of health and well being • Gaps in health inequalities closing • Local people having more trust in BACHS • Services that more closely match the needs of the local population • The ability to demonstrate that BACHS has high quality, community based services • Improved patient satisfaction. There is overwhelming evidence that real patient engagement will lead to better quality outcomes for both patients and staff. Involving patients in their treatment and care is shown to improve healthcare quality and experiences. Increasingly patients want to play an active role in their own healthcare and information about treatment options and outcomes and by sharing this information and involving patients in their treatment will invariably lead to improved outcomes for the patient. All providers of NHS services must involve people and ensure that the services and care they provide reflects peoples’ needs and preferences. This means that changes made to services are as a result of identified patient needs and wants and that the impact of change should always result in improvements to services from the perspective of patients as well as staff. 3 Vision, Mission and Values The strategic focus of the Patient Experience and Engagement Strategy is to contribute towards achieving BACHS vision “be the provider of choice for the delivery of high Effective [mm/dd/yyyy] BACHS Patient Experience and Engagement Strategy Page 4 of 19 Version 1.3 Archive Location

  • 6. 3.1 Vision Our values are: • respect and dignity • commitment to quality of care • compassion • improving lives • working together for patients. Building on our organisational values, the strategy aims to ensure a robust and systematic approach to Patient Experience and Engagement, which in turn will ensure the successful execution of BACHS’s strategic objectives: • to listen and respond to patients and local communities • to promote healthy lives and reduce inequalities in health • to continuously improve quality • to deliver seamless services • to deliver care where and when people need it. 3.2 Our contribution towards achieving BACHS vision BACHS Patient Experience and Engagement strategy aims to ensure that all employees follow the best practice guidelines on patient engagement and improving patient experience. 4 Stakeholder expectations The Operating Framework for the NHS in England: 2008-2009 requires that PCTs ensure that they and NHS providers: • Adopt a systematic and rigorous approach to seeking, collecting and acting on the views of individuals and partners in the local community not just during periods of change but on an ongoing basis. • Create greater opportunities for their communities to make their voices heard, raising awareness of those opportunities and empowering patients and the public to use them and LINks (Local Involvement Networks); • Take greater responsibility for communicating with their local populations and stakeholders to ensure better understanding of, and confidence in, local NHS services.

  • 7. The HR and Professional Governance Group will monitor and co-ordinate implementation of the requirements. 5 Strategic objectives, measures and targets 5.1. Strategic Aims The strategic aims and objectives of this strategy are to: - • Establish a local framework for patient experience feedback • Develop a culture of real patient engagement throughout BACHS • Ensure that the patient experience informs and shapes the way in which services are developed and delivered by BACHS 5.2 Underpinning Principles The following principles underpin the strategy and will help ensure that BACHS listens to patient experiences, responds and learns from it. • We will listen and understand their experience • We will learn and take action to implement change • We will provide feedback on the impact of our actions In addition, we will follow statutory guidance regarding service changes/service redesign as set out in the NHS Action 2006 section 242. 5.3 Key Objectives i) To develop and support a culture of real patient engagement and improvement Patient and carer experience will only improve significantly and be sustained if there is a culture of patient engagement, where seeking real time feedback from patients is integral to our roles and not viewed as ‘nice to do’. Improving the patient experience is everyone’s role and we will need to develop new skills and systems to ensure that a culture of patient engagement happens across the whole of BACHS. Key Actions • Training will be provided to all staff to ensure they have the necessary skills; knowledge and understanding that will enable them to engage effectively with patients and improve their services in light of the feedback. • An online toolkit for service managers will be developed to assist managers in developing approaches to patient engagement.

  • 8. • Equality Impact Assessments will be used to help patients provide feedback to staff on their experiences and what changes they would like to see to the way in which services are planned and delivered. • An Internal Patient Experience Group will be established to oversee work on patient improvement undertaken in light of patient feedback. Key Outcomes • Staff feel more confident about engaging with patients to gather feedback and services are improved on a continuous basis. • Services are planned and delivered with patients at the forefront and increase patient satisfaction is evident. ii) Develop processes for capturing and responding to Real-time Patient Experience Feedback Although BACHS learn about patient experiences from a wide range of sources including patient surveys, complaints, the Patient Advice and Liaison Services (PALS), business / service specific patient surveys we recognise that a more systematic approach to this is required if we are going to embed IPE into our core business processes. During 2009/10 we will develop a system to capture patient feedback data at business unit level so that we can achieve a comprehensive overview of what our patients and the public think about our services, make the necessary changes and track improvements made to our services as a result of the feedback. Sharing this information with staff and service managers will be key to enabling them to instigate appropriate service improvements and then feedback to patients about the changes they have made. We will also identify good practice both within BACHS and in the wider NHS and share this with staff so that they can learn from and develop better practice within their own service area. As part of this work we will develop a system to ensure that lessons learned from PALS, complaints, serious untoward incidents and claims are incorporated into the feedback processes for IPE and shared with staff where appropriate. Strengthening our links with communities and individuals will enable us to engage and work with them to develop services that are responsive to their needs. BACHS will feedback to local people on what it has done to improve as a result of feedback from patients Key Actions • Develop at Business Unit level a system for gathering patient information (surveys, questionnaires, complaints etc) feeding the information back to service managers and staff and tracking changes made to services • Develop processes that enable PALs information to be incorporated into feedback Effective [mm/dd/yyyy] BACHS Patient Experience and Engagement Strategy Page 8 of 19 Version 1.3 Archive Location
  • 9. processes for IPE • Quarterly reports from PALs will be incorporated into the system • Work with the community development team to forge closer links and develop joint strategies for engaging with local communities to seek feedback about services and ideas for service development and improvement. Key Outcomes • Increased patient experience and satisfaction • Reduced health inequalities iii) Provision of high quality patient/public information In producing patient and public information we have a responsibility to: • be clear, open and consistent • write in plain, straightforward English, and other languages as necessary, that is easy to understand • be accessible to a wide audience, making publications available on request in a range of community languages and in large print, Braille or on audio • be up to date, accurate and consistent • strive to be inclusive and nor discriminate against any individual or group of people • strive to avoid promoting stereotypes or using language commonly considered offensive • strive to meet the needs of our target audiences • follow BACHS’ house style. Staff should refer to the patient information policy - http://nww.bradford.nhs.uk/extranet/ Policies/Published%20Policies/Patient%20Information.pdf For further information and guidance, contact the communications team on: 01274 237719 or email: communications@bradford.nhs.uk or look on the intranet, in the communications section, for a range of guidance to help with writing patient information - http://nww.bradfordairedale-pct.nhs.uk/Working+for+us/Our+Teams/Executive+Office/ Communications/Communications+Guidelines.htm Key Outcomes • Patient / public information that is written in plain English and at an appropriate level of literacy Effective [mm/dd/yyyy] BACHS Patient Experience and Engagement Strategy Page 9 of 19 Version 1.3 Archive Location
  • 10. • Increased accessibility of publications • All publications in BACHS house style In order to deliver high performance to reach where we want to be, constant monitoring on the effects of the strategy is necessary.

  • 13. 7 Implementation This strategy will be presented to BACHS board for comment and approval. Following the approval, Action Plans for delivering the strategy will be developed and approved by the HR and Professional Governance Group. The strategy and action plans will be disseminated at the HR and Professional Governance Group meeting and the balanced scorecard will be used as framework to conduct gap analysis of current performance and target performance. Improvement plans will then be developed to reduce the performance gap. The Balanced Scorecard will be monitored at the HR and Professional Governance Group meetings. Any associated resource implications incurred by the implementation of the strategy and action plan will be identified and managed as appropriate. 8 Communications BACHS management recognises communication is vital to ensure successful strategy execution. Table 1 illustrates the methods which will be used to disseminate the strategy to enable both internal and external stakeholders to be fully aware of deliverables and enablers in respect of Patient Experience and Engagement.

  • 16. 10 Risk Analysis BACHS management are aware that some of the assumptions underling this strategy are constantly evolving as are the environmental factors, all these will have an impact on the implementation of this strategic plan. Risk assessment will be conducted and monitored closely at monthly operational review meetings and yearly strategy test and adapt meetings. Mitigation plans will be developed where it is appropriate. Strategy is reviewed annually, but it may also take place by exceptions, eg: • major policy breach within the community • identification of new threats or vulnerabilities • significant organisational restructuring • Significant change in technical infrastructure. 11 Conclusion We are committed to listening to our patients, learning from their feedback and initiating changes that make a real and positive difference to our services. Whilst there are many examples of where this is working well, we know that a more systematic approach to IPE, in which we are open to learning from feedback, is required across the whole of BACHS if we are to create a culture of patient engagement and involvement. This strategy is designed to help create this culture of engagement and improvement and ensure that IPE is simply part of ‘how we do things in BACHS’.
