Bob ricketts - commissioning and finance rationale

  1. 1. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: The commissioning and finance rationale Bob Ricketts, Director of Commissioning Support Services Strategy & Market Development NHS England Better Outcomes, Better Value: integrating physical and mental health 24th June 2014 1
  2. 2. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Why is the integration of physical & mental health in commissioning important? • Ethical imperative for commissioners The commissioning and finance rationale: • To begin to make parity of esteem a reality • To deliver better outcomes & experience • To secure a better return on resources So what does all this mean for commissioners?
  3. 3. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Parity of esteem: • Key strategic objective & commitment: “making sure we are just as focused on improving mental health as physical health and that patients with mental health problems don’t suffer inequalities, either because of the mental health problem or because they don’t get the best care for their physical health problems” NHS England: Everyone Counts
  4. 4. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Parity of esteem: • People have a right to expect equally high quality services for their mental and physical health, which are person-centred & ‘joined up’: “My family and I have access to services which enable us to maintain both our mental and physical wellbeing. If I become unwell I use services which assess and treat mental health disorders or conditions on a par with physical health illnesses.” NHS England: Everyone Counts
  5. 5. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Better outcomes & experience: Scale: • Every year 1 in 4 adults experience at least one mental health disorder • Mental health is the single largest cause of disability in the UK (23% mental health; 16% CVD; 16% cancer) • Mental & physical health are indivisible & unitary and should be considered together by commissioners Condition: % of people with depression with… Diabetes 27% Hypertension 29% Stroke 31% Cancer 33%
  6. 6. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Disparity in Outcomes: • People with schizophrenia are: 2x more likely to die from CVD 3x more likely to die from respiratory disease • Life expectancy: average for men …………………………………… 79 years average for men with mental health problems… 68 years • People with diabetes who also have co-morbid mental health problems are at increased risk of poorer health outcomes & premature mortality. Co-morbid mental health problems are associated with poorer glycaemic control, more diabetic complications & lower medication adherence
  7. 7. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Return on investment: Mental health problems = 28% of morbidity, but receive only 13% of NHS spend But potentially high return on resources: ROI for each pound invested in: • £84 for school-based social & emotional learning programmes to prevent conduct disorder • £18 for early interventions in psychosis • £10 for work-based mental health promotion • £8 for training interventions with parents with conduct disorder • £5 for early detection & treatment of depression at work
  8. 8. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Why commissioning for integration makes financial sense: • 12-18% of all NHS expenditure on LTCs is linked to poor mental health & wellbeing = £8bn-£13bn pa (King’s Fund: Long-term conditions and mental health The cost of co-morbidities, 2012) • When people with LTCs also have mental health issues the cost of treatment can rise significantly. 1/3 people with long-term physical conditions also increase mental health problems, increasing treatment costs • Co-morbid mental health problems raise total health care costs by at least 45% for each person with a LTC & co-morbid health problem • At least £1 in £8 spent on LTCs such as CHD or diabetes is linked to poor health & wellbeing; savings far outweigh the cost of psychological interventions (NHS Confederation Mental Health Network and King’s Fund)
  9. 9. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Why commissioning for integration makes financial sense: “A growing evidence base suggests that more integrated ways of working … offer the best chance of improving outcomes for both mental health and physical conditions.” “There is also evidence that the costs of including psychological or mental health initiatives within disease management or rehabilitation programmes can be more than outweighed by the savings form improved physical health and decreased service use.” King’s Fund: Long-term conditions and mental health The cost of co- morbidities, 2012
  10. 10. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Why commissioning for integration makes financial sense: • Hillingdon Hospital – incorporating a psychological component into breathlessness clinics for COPD led to 1.17 fewer A&E attendances & 1.93 fewer hospital bed day admissions per person, saving £837 per person – saving 4 times the cost • CBT- based programme for angina led to patients needing 53% fewer hospital admissions, saving £1,537 per person
  11. 11. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: Commissioners & providers should address the factors that enable good integrated care: • Information-sharing systems Shared protocols • Joint funding & commissioning Co-located services • Multidisciplinary teams Liaison services • Navigators Research • Reduction of stigma Mental Health Foundation: Crossing Boundaries Sept. 2013
  12. 12. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: So what does all this mean for commissioners? • Make improvements now through incentivising incremental changes in service specifications (CQUIN) • Put individuals at the centre of commissioning decisions • Work effectively with key local partners & communities – influencing education, work, housing, leisure, lifestyles • Designing integrated mental health & physical health services • Develop and incentivise the delivery of integrated mental health & physical health outcomes • Use the Better Care Fund creatively • Where appropriate, exploit the power for transformation of population- based commissioning for outcomes
  13. 13. The importance of integration of physical and mental health: So what does all this mean for commissioners? Can it be done? Integrating Physical and Mental Health in Nottingham: More joined-up & strategic approach across commissioners & providers: • GP training around mental health • Mental health staff training around physical health • Improving access to health improvement • CQUIN to incentivise physical health checks & smoking support • Mental health incorporated within long-term conditions pathways Dr. J.
