NWL NHS Hospital Consultation, 2012

Published on

Simplified presentation of 2012 "Sharing a Healthier Future" consultation on reorganisation of hospital services in NW London. This is important and is being generally completely misunderstood, which is why I wrote this simplified version for my GP's patient group. I have tried to give an accurate and dispassionate view of what the consultation document actually says; not what many local agitation groups think, or would like, it to mean. Remember that this was written for my doctor's patient's group and slide 9 is specific to them, although all the principles still apply and all the other slides are non-geography specific.

  1. 1. Shaping a Healthier FutureSummary for Barnabas MC PPGDr Keith C Marshall19 September 2012 © Dr Keith C Marshall, 2012
  2. 2. Shaping a Healthier Future Why NWL NHS Needs to Change • Improve care • Changing population – predicted 5% (100,000) increase in next 10 years • Aging population – life expectancy increased by 3 years in last 10 years • Increases in long-term medical conditions, eg. diabetes, heart disease • Overall less than optimal access to GPs • Care improves with greater access to specialists • Care improves when specialists see more, and more challenging, patients • Increasing need for, and complexity of, maternity services • Elderly & disabled too often stuck in hospital • Financial Constraint • Significant budget constraints; £1billion savings required by 2014/15 • Current funding level guaranteed only to 2015 • High capital cost of new & replacement medical technology • Over supply of A&E provision cf. national average • Over use of A&E cf. national average • Major hospital building maintenance challenges If we do nothing … money will run out … services will get worse … buildings will get worse … services will end up being cut2 © Dr Keith C Marshall, 2012
  3. 3. Shaping a Healthier Future What is included? • NWL NHS hospital services • 9 hospitals (in blue) • Alignment of hospital services, especially A&E What is NOT included? • Doing nothing! • Closing hospitals • Postcode lottery of care • Mental health and social care • Out-of-hospital care* * Out-of-hospital care is already happening and is a pre-requisite to the hospital changes3 © Dr Keith C Marshall, 2012

  5. 5. Shaping a Healthier Future What is the Vision of Care? Three main principles … Local routine medical services giving better access 1 closer to home and improved patient experience Central specialist services means better clinical 2 outcomes and safer services for patients Integration (wherever possible) of care between 3 primary, secondary and social care teams to ensure seamless patient experience Deliver care as close to home as possible • Build on already existing out-of-hospital care strategy • Empower individuals to self-care • Improved access to GPs • Better support for carers Where required centralise specialist services to provide better patient outcomes5 © Dr Keith C Marshall, 2012
  6. 6. Shaping a Healthier Future What is Urgent Care? What is A&E? Roughly 80% of what goes through “Casualty” is Urgent Care Urgent Care • Anything not likely to require hospital admission • Minor fractures, wounds, kids with saucepans on heads, urgent illness • Where necessary stabilise patients for transfer to A&E • Will continue to be provided at all 9 hospitals • Open 24/7 • If someone can take you by car this is where you go – just as now! A&E • Anything requiring an ambulance or likely to require hospital admission • Accident, major trauma, diabetic crises, urgent surgery, obstetric and paediatric emergencies • Will include Urgent Care facilities • Will be provided at 5 “Major Hospitals” • Open 24/7 Emergency heart attack and stroke care is already centralised on Northwick Park and St Mary’s6 © Dr Keith C Marshall, 2012

  8. 8. Shaping a Healthier Future When will the Changes Happen? • Consultation runs to 8 October 2012 • Final report / decision due in early 2013 • Out-of-hospital care has to be in place before hospital changes can take place • Already happening but expected to take 2-3 years to complete • Hospital building programmes may start in 2013-15 period • Hospital service realignment will start around 2015 and take at least 3 years to implement8 © Dr Keith C Marshall, 2012
