  3. 3. 3Inquiries come and go …..
  4. 4. • Thatcher’s Internal Market put building blocks in place(purchaser-provider split, Trust status) but lacked anational quality framework of measurement, outcomes• Labour put in place a national framework from Dobsonto Darzi: NICE, NSFs, CHI/HC/CQC, PBR, QoF, PROMs,CQUIN, QOF, Quality Accounts)• Lansley built on this, his legacy on quality will (onbalance) be positive: reinforcement of independence,PROMs, CQUIN, QOF, Outcomes Framework, QualityPremium4Bristol mattered, cementing the architecture
  5. 5. • Francis (Mid Staffs), Kennedy (Bristol) ……• We have a better framework than ever before• Outcomes measurement and incentives are key• Build on QOF, CQUINS, PBR,• Lagging on PROMs, but progress on clinical data sets• Welcome the dark forces – competition and medicalnegligence claims• Incentives for quality prescribing and outcomes5Agenda
  6. 6. • “…risk-adjusted,absolute mortality forthe 4 conditionsincluded in the pay-for-performance programdecreased significantly.”CQUINS• 0.5% national , e.g. forFriends and Family, VTE• 2% local within nationalremit6Advancing Quality to CQUINs

  8. 8. • Too much emphasis on financial incentives• Didn’t have the impact we expected• But don’t scrap them• We need more information on outcomes, patientexperience, and more transparency• So starting point is information on quality in thepublic domain• We need outcomes measurement and incentives8Andy McKeon

  12. 12. 12Regulated competition is a good thing• On the best available evidence,competition at regulated prices hasimproved the quality of some NHS services• ‘Any qualified provider’ arrangementsallowing patients, helped by their GPs, tochoose where to get their health care aresuitable in some cases• In other cases competitive procurement bylocal NHS commissioners will beappropriate• Routine collection and publication ofpatient outcome measures should beexpanded to enable evaluation of theeffects of competition• Competition can help integration of care –no evidence that it hampers integration
