  14. 14. Some of the topics we explored. How do I: • Work with my Governing Body to achieve high standards at the CSU so they do what we want them to do? How do I articulate my concerns? • Help my Governing Body to influence the Local Authority to spend money most effectively on health and social care (Better Care Fund) • Have sensible input into our procurement processes from start to finish? • Influence commissioning decisions with integrity? (Value Based Commissioning) • Ensure I am being used for my full potential in this role? • Get clarity of my responsibility for the governance of my CCG? • Interact effectively with outside bodies (NHS England, CQC, Monitor)? • Ensure we run an effective competitive tendering process for a large service provision? • Create some collective power and start the revolution? #ccgdev

  21. 21. What have you found the most useful about the Action Learning Sets? • Opportunity to have others views & to have “assisted” reflection • Finding out about the differing roles secondary care doctor takes • Cyril Chantler. Great perspectives which stimulate group. • Network with London CCG 2nd Care Doctors and building confidence in role!! • Discussion & learning from colleagues, learning from Sir Cyril Chantler • Learning from others /getting ideas from Cyril & Jamie • Understanding the differing needs & contributions CCGs have for 2° Care Drs. Cyril’s wisdom & perspective #ccgdev
  22. 22. What have you found the least useful about the Action Learning Sets? • Other secondary care doctors ‘in my day’ anecdotes & chat. • Can’t think of anything • Sometimes too much emphasis on process. • Nothing in particular! • Need a more regular frequency (I know this is expected end date) with ongoing funding. • I think whatever was covered was useful. I think the ALS should continue. Maybe once every 4 months. This will form part of our continuing education. Would like to thank Jamie & Cyril and all my colleagues on the group. I feel better having attended. • Occasional issues became too prolonged convoluted #ccgdev
  23. 23. What next steps would you like to see and take, as an individual and group? • Continue facilitated Group work to develop Action Learning • Independently apply what I’ve learned. As a group keep in touch 2-3 times per year – ideally with continued facilitation. • Continue contact & discussion with colleagues, talk to Sir Cyril Chantler • Would be helpful to maintain a network to share experiences & developments • To influence NHSE with a feedback session in next 6 months • Be more involved in changing pathways & contribute to improving patient care – meeting again. • Learning to engage with local authorities & join up communication paths 2° Care →Primary→Community→Local Authority #ccgdev
  24. 24. Any other comments? • I am now better able to be an ambassador for clinical commissioning. • At the end of 1 year, my main outcome has been to understand better what I’ve learned & how to apply it to influence change in the service. • On balance these sessions have been most useful & informative & very worthwhile. Group should be reviewed. These meetings will enable me to be much more effective on my CCG. • Link in with other 2nd Care Dr networks across England. • Useful • Has helped to open horizons and ways to address common problems • Structure very useful • The group as a whole feel it’s important to continue to have these meetings as a development tool. It would be great if NHSE would fund further development please. Much better than personal coaching. Interaction between like-minded clinicians. #ccgdev
  25. 25. And one participant added the following: Outcomes from ALS: 1) Able to have a London wide perspective of the health economy 2) The local CCG has been able to use me to develop Value Based Commissioning for N.C London CQUINS. 3) The understanding of CPD in finances, procurement, tendering. 4) I would have given up the CCG role, without this ALS!! 5) The changes occurring in NW London and NC London over the last year and on-going 2014/15 #ccgdev
