  • It’s not just fluffy stuff, it really does have an impact on outcomes and in fact if it’s all about outcomes, which it should be, then whose outcomes should the health service be working towards?
  • Symbiosis between compliance and experience with an important side order of autonomy
  • Crash points for children are in infancy and adolescence.
  • Reason for optimism?Children being taken seriously at a more senior level than ever before? Certainly within last 25 years. CMO report focusing on children with chapter on neurodisabled children – usually talks about MRSA – still some way to go, didn’t think could do any focus groups with neurodisabled children.Continued commitment to the Outcomes ForumForum recommended 4 new indicators government accepted recommendation – talk about under drivers
  • Understanding the health system so we can make it listen!!
  • Currently CCGs at sea with person centred commissioning
  • The Mandate – Dan Poulter wants significant read across to the pledge when the Mandate is refreshed ready for April 2015NHS Outcomes Framework, originally included very few outcomes directly related to children and young people and a number that could have related were not measured for under 16s. The Government have accepted the HOF recommendations and have included two new outcomes for 13/14Potential years of life lost for c&ypCancer survival rates for childrenAll data will be presented in 5 year age bands to enable effective transition to be monitoredPlaceholder for developing a PREM, this should be ready shortly according to DH.DH looking at best way to capture patient experience of integrated care across all age ranges.Also looking at measures of child development at 2-2.5 years and school readiness.Looking at feasibility of extending all relevant measures to cover children.Are also looking at outcomes in the following areas:Further work around PREMsIntegrated careTime to diagnosis or agreed treatment planTransitionImpact of poor health on educationPH Outcomes Framework can’t be altered until 2015Maternal mental healthMental health problems in C&YPQuality and Outcomes Framework – QOF How GPs earn extra moneyThe ‘quality premium’ is intended to reward clinical commissioning groups (CCGs) for improvements in the quality of the services that they commission and for associated improvements in health outcomes and reducing inequalities. CQUINS similarly are payment designed to reward improvements in the delivery of careSpecialised Service Specifications outline expectations around what a good service should look like and sets key service outcomes. NHS England have just finished a consultation around transforming participation in specialised services and are recommending making stronger connections between the patient/carer reps on different groupsWomen and Children is one of the five national Programmes of Care (PoC), which have been designed to organise the individual service areas into five functional groupings.The national Women and Children PoC covers services in women and children, congenital and inherited diseases; this relates to both specialised and highly specialised prescribed services, and includes both surgical and medical services.The services in the PoC are clustered into Clinical Reference Groups (CRGs) to support the national work in these areas. There are 13 CRGs in the Women and ChildrenPoC and each CRG has 4 patient and carer member places.
  • Francis has recommended that Monitor and CQC be combined.
  • Local healthwatch have been told on set up that they have to act as a champion for children and young people. NCB have produced a fantastic resource which aims to help local Healthwatchs learn from the LiNKS and Healthwatch Pathfinder experiences of engaging with children and young peopleLocal Healthwatch have a seat at their HWBB – will feed in evidence from their local community to HWBB and Commissioners – virtuous feedback loop
  • Currently running a campaign to find out what people think about their local complaints system with intention of improving process 3 – collect and collate evidence from local groups to inform HWBB and Commissioners
  • Lots of tips for local healthwatch on how to successfully engage children and young people.
  • Changing culture, NHS focusing a lot of attention on changing culture of staff and we need to do what we can to change the culture of being a patient. Supporting people to become empowered consumers of the health system and that means not only understanding what the system is and how it works, what our rights are, but also knowing how to complain if those rights and our needs are not being met.
  • ‘many of the problems we face behave like epidemics. They aren't linear phenomena in the sense that they steadily and predictably change according to the level of effort brought to bear against them. They are capable of sudden and dramatic changes in direction. Years of well-intentioned intervention may have no impact at all, yet the right intervention - at just the right time - can start a cascade of change.’

    20. 20. Making complaints in the new system Stage 4 Judicial Review If the complaints process is unsuccessful then you could undertake Judical Review to challenge the legality of the NHS actions. This is a big undertaking and you need legal advice. Stage 3 Complain to the PSHO They will review the way your complaint was handled using the information you provide, and can instruct the NHS to apologise or change its policies. Stage 2 Complain to the commissioner of the service This will be a CCG or NHS England. They will have their complaints information on their website Stage 1 Complain to the provider: they will have complaints manager or complaints policy They must acknowledge keep you informed of the process of your complaint
    21. 21. What is CDC doing? • Providing clinician’s with tools to better help them provide a service – Spotting the Sick Child – Managing My Way Clinic Poster – Emergency Healthcare Plans – RCPCH Neurodisability Portal • Empowerment: – Expert Parent Programme – Constitution Project – Developing methodology for involving severely communication impaired young people in research
    22. 22. So? • Grounds for considerable optimism • But starting from a low base • Lots of work to do • But a significant number of levers to pull on in getting that work prioritised • So we maybe at a tipping point
