  6. 6. Plans • 2 year operational • 5 year strategic • Shared plan for totality of health and social care activity and spend • Involve all stakeholders and signed off through H&WB Board So what’s our view? 6
  7. 7. Area Team Perspective • Great opportunity to develop real shared integrated planning • Realisation of long term aspirations • Build on existing S 75 and S 256 experience of pooled budgets • Many CCGs looking to go beyond minimum requirements, eg all emergency admissions spend • Recognise complexity and difficulty of changes – for social care, for funds, for NHS providers • See 2014/15 as a start and continuing negotiation to deliver true transformation in 2015/16 7
  8. 8. Some issues • Transfer not seen as free gift • Incentivising large acute providers to change • NHS England as contributors to plan – specialised services, primary care commissioning responsibilities • GP providers as one of potential recipients of investment to drive change in acute hospitals • Important facets: • good local relationships within very effective governance • clarity of purpose established early • risk sharing • Role to encourage CCGs, but not direct them • Assurance of quality and content of plans for NHS 8
