  • 1. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Third Sector Public Health Workshops Feedback and next steps 24th March 2014 Jim McManus, Director of Public Health
  • 2. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Background • Voluntary groups make an important contribution to improving and protecting the health of the population – from targeted work with vulnerable people to self- management and direct interventions. Public Health skills and capacity, joined with the voluntary sector’s connections and “can do” mindset could produce a major improvement in the health of Hertfordshire and also help integrate care for people across all sectors. • The workshops will be an excellent opportunity for the voluntary sector to contribute to policy development, build relationships, and discuss new commissioning arrangements.
  • 3. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently What we did • Five workshops were held, one with the Sports and Physical Activity Partnership and Stakeholders and the other four on specific topics, arising from the Joint Strategic Needs Assessment, where the third sector and public health could explore working together • Each workshop had a presentation on the theme (these are all on slideshare) followed by discussion and feedback • Commissioners from NHS and County Council, along with Public Health, participated in the workshops with third sector colleagues • This presentation has the feedback and next steps from this work
  • 4. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently About the Sports and Physical Activity Partnership Workshop • Around 60 stakeholders, brought together by the Sports and Physical Activity Partnership, came together to identify some ways of collaborating on shared public health and physical activity priorities • The sports and physical activity partnership convened and organised this workshop • 15th February 2014, Hertfordshire Sports Village
  • 5. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently About the third sector themed workshops • four workshops to explore the role the voluntary sector can play influencing the development of public health policy and delivering services. • These workshops were organised jointly between Public Health and Watford and Three Rivers Trust, acting on behalf of all the CVSs in Hertfordshire – Wednesday, 26 February, 14:00 – 16:30: Public Health and Younger People – Thursday, 6 March, 09:30 – 12:00: Public Health and Older People – Tuesday, 11 March, 14:00 – 16:30: Public Health and Long Term Conditions – Tuesday, 18 March, 09:30 – 12:00: Public Health and Mental Health
  • 6. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Workshop Questions • Each workshop considered four questions: – What is the scope of public health, and what contribution can the voluntary sector make to service delivery, policy development, campaigning and tackling health inequalities? – How can the voluntary sector help improve resilience, self- management and secondary prevention, and so help reduce unnecessary hospital admissions? – How can the voluntary sector be better commissioned to deliver public health interventions? How can relationships between the voluntary sector and commissioners (DH, local public health commissioners, GPs, and others) be improved? – What scope is there to apply commissioning innovations such as payment by results or a Total Place approach to public health commissioning?
  • 7. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Feedback – Young People 1 • Organise vol sector PH conference in partnership with vol sector please • Vol sector Speed dating – one part of vcs finding out what another one does…maybe sport talking to young people. Maybe link this to commissioning opportunities – couple of hours. – CVSs could do it would need a little money • Also speed funding
  • 8. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Feedback -Young People 2 • Try to make the processes as clear as possible – be clear about what you want to commission. Some smaller contracts e.g. “we want to nail obesity in area y” makes it easy. Be clearer about what commissioning is trying to achieve – Enabling the citizen cross-cutting workstream needs to take this on board please – Break down big bids into smaller chunks • Need more clarity between pan herts projects and local district needs (latter are where vol sectors come into their own) • Revisit how useful the compact is please.
  • 9. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Feedback -Young People 3 • Commissioners need to understand better how contracts enable vol sector tendering and provision (e.g. biffa waste in derbyshire) • Use simple clear language please and remove jargon • Knowing what opportunities are available and knowing what vol sectors can deliver on – share granular information on health topics and districts - HRBQ is broken down by district level. • District funding – remind districts they need to work with vol sector • Connect scheme – club for business which want to show how community friendly they are W3T connect – what promises can people make. Get employers and members to adopt some protocols on promoting good public health and good public health practices. An initiative which could be built up. Could be copied elsewhere or built in • Make health profiles at county and district level available, district flavour really helpful • Facilitate vol sector input into the JSNA please
  • 10. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Feedback -Young People 4 • Would a vol sector alliance on public health be useful? Or on another topic? A strand on obesity a strand on MH – use this as opportunity for CPD – Could we use email lists? • Good to have a resource that documented what the other groups did in themes. The database of Herts community solutions may be a solution for this but needs to be better accessible and used. Problem is the minute its up to date its out of date • Better communication in general – need to think this one through. This is a big issue – ability to communicate electronically.
  • 11. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Feedback -Young People 5 • Use twitter and social media • Work with cvs • Funding to district councils needs to be transparent in terms of what PH are expecting • Review and revise the compact at Herts level • Districts need to do their and lobby locally • Try and find out who is the member responsible for the health portfolio
  • 12. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Contributions on Mental Health 1 Third sector contributions Working together PH, NHS, LA contributions •Activities which improve self esteem and self worth, key skills – recovery, prevention and resilience agenda •Cohort of people needing most support (complex needs) •Improving public awareness •Do more to encourage and enable volunteering – commissioning of services but no funding for volunteer centres. Cost of volunteer centres needs to be considered if volunteering is a proper strategy. Echo this for any frontline org with minimum staffing. Cost of keeping volunteer centres going versus return it brings – if volunteering is an outcome, the infrastructure to support it (vol mgt) needs supporting •Training front line workers to understand and signpost better •Evidence for funding (support vcs on getting funding)
  • 13. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Contributions on Mental Health 2 Third sector contributions Working together PH, NHS, LA contributions •CAB transition services are a really good example of third sector working together •CAB transitions service looking at how we do a referral process and have an activity plan. Sharing data on a small scale. •Easy to connect with and access especially where there is a fear of accessing services •Reducing isolation (flexible), trust in the sector, local knowledge, - third sector could promote itself more •People expect too much from services – people need to be more resilience generally. Services need to promote resilience and taking responsibility for oneself •Making every contact count is good •Dealing with alcohol use for self medication – investment has happened but could do more •Lifestyle prescriptions •Clearer pathways and being able to move from formal statutory into third sector and less red tape •Education – get into young people •A piece of work to support the vol sector demontrate return on investment for their work. •Commissioners to explain clearly and consistently what they are looking for in return on investment and how vcs reports ROI •Feed this into terry please •Training offered •Services are reactive, not flexible enough – need to look at preventive agenda more widely •Targets having a negative impact on service being delivered (time limited services) not person centred….need to be more user journey focused
  • 14. www.hertsdirect.org Think Intelligence, Think Intelligently Contributions on Mental Health 3 Third sector contributions Working together PH, NHS, LA contributions •Innovation, new ideas and a place where we can try new things •Checks and balances – lobbies, challenges and in a sense almost holds stat sector to account (critical friend) •Addresses gaps in provision •Offers value for money – outcome focused high level of professional •Approachable •Good at inreach •Easly intervention •Undertakes research •Culture changes – awareness into local business etc •Support people to access physical activity more to improve resilience •Dementia friendly communities •Provide messages •Demand on formal services – need for navigators or signposters. Signposting is a big issue •Shift to much more openness to enable people to say when they are struggling – change social norms •Find a friend •Co production to harness resilience agenda •Get people engaged from beginning •A process of co-production – stat sector brings info, use vol sectors links with ctyy to get in there and understand, and feedback – work together to get targeting and design right – so working in service design and commissioning together •Make jsna etc data and tools available to third sector, GIS mapping to help third sector to focus their attentions •Create an environment which allows third sector to challenge without taking away funding •Work to ensure third sector can flag up changing issues and feed it back up the line (so how do we harness this in JSNA and JSAA processes…) •The challenge by third sector needs to be seen as positive •Provide info and data and back up for bids •Parity of physical and mental health •(underline this) •We miss a lot of preventive work because we are not breaking MH down into component parts well enough – how do we conceptualise this •Visit the space centres.
