  2. 2. The GM Joint Formulary Moving forward Andrew White Head of Medicines Management Greater Manchester CSU
  3. 3. Are we all that different? • …..researching and developing over two-thirds of the current medicines pipeline, ensuring that the UK remains at the forefront of helping patients prevent and overcome diseases. • …..to ensure that patients are able to benefit from the latest and most advanced medicines. • ……the pharmaceutical industry ……. in improving the health, wellbeing and productivity of the UK population is often underestimated.
  4. 4. GM Landscape Big and complex! 2.8 Million population • Biggest conurbation outside London Significant Deprivation 64% of people living in areas of economic and social deprivation Significant morbidity • CVD, Respiratory, Diabetes, Mental Health, Pain • Poor Mortality outcomes GM NHS spend - £5bn • 12 CCGs • 13 providers 6% of UK drug spend - £650M • 1o Care - £475M • 2o Care - £175M est. • £232 per registered patient Better care Better value • now retired but amongst worse in country High cost per capita Variation • Between and within localities
  5. 5. But …….. BIG variation in prescribing FEW Local Health economy Formularies • Not consistent • 2o care well established, but majority independent Persuade GM leadership to initiate project • 18 months! • CEOs, DoFs, DoCs, DPHs, Trusts
  6. 6. • QIPP • Reducing spend – overall – not necessarily in drugs budget alone • Change in environment – IH&W – Localism – Integration and partnership working – New healthcare providers • Healthier Together – Reduce admissions by improving the health of the population – Change the shape of primary care delivery – Need for consistency, not irrational variation Drivers for change
  7. 7. It can’t go on like this! “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” ― Nelson Mandela
  8. 8. Supporting medicines optimisation to reduce avoidable admissions • EUR processes – Consistent – Respected decisions – Monitoring approval criteria • High cost drugs – appropriate use and recharging – Develop audit standards for providers – Exit strategy – clinical pathways • Homecare development – Improve take up - Best value – Shape patient pathways Strategic MM service All 12 CCGs • GMMMG products – IPNTS – Formulary • Redesign of clinical pathways – aligned KPIs – outcome monitoring – exit strategies • Provider contract management • Procurement savings • Supporting regulatory compliance eg CQC

  10. 10. Governance GMMMG Interface Prescribing and New Therapies Subgroup New therapies recommendations RAG list, shared care protocols Formulary Sub group Produce formulary Do Not Prescribe list Maintain and manage formulary CCG members make decisions – Supported (lead) by CSU.
  11. 11. Why do we need a GM formulary? • Seamless care across the 1o – 2o care interface – Consistent across all of GM – Lack of postcode lottery – Reduce need for switching • Patient choice – Improved consistency of outcomes regardless of location of care • Pharmaceutical Industry – 6% of UK drug spend – Good process essential – ABPI, EMIG • “Do not prescribe” list. • Adherence strongly recommended by GMMMG – Will supersede all local formularies
  12. 12. Consultation was hard! ….But good! Launched July 2011 – Over 100 industry attendees – 3 months to reply – Consulting on content • Many replied regarding process not content! 420 replies (after internal NHS consultation) – 50:50 - Industry : NHS – Very time consuming • 6 months to review/refine/approve Worthwhile – Improved quality, process improved, – Transparency, NICE compliance strengthened 206 207 1 NHS Industry
  13. 13. NICE & other challenges Innovation Health and Wealth – NICE compliance regime – We do comply – In an 80% formulary? NICE good practice guide – Formulary development – Compliant in all areas • Minor tweaks only following gap analysis Challenges? – ‘Drug X is a possible option in the treatment of condition Y’ • 3 drugs in same class with +ve ‘option’ TAs • Can / should the NHS prioritise?
  14. 14. Do Not Prescribe List “I'm actually as proud of the things we haven't done as the things I have done. Innovation is saying no to 1,000 things.” A bit controversial! – 32 items – was 38 – Postcode lottery prevention – Evidenced based, rational disinvestment , covering wide area Criteria – Products deemed not suitable for adults in 1o or 2o care within GM • BNF “not NHS” or “DLCV” • Safety, efficacy and cost-effectiveness • IPNTS - Not recommended Reviewed 6 monthly Implemented differently – 2o care - no new initiations – 1o care - many stops
  15. 15. Why change? “Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” ― Barack Obama
  16. 16. Developments • Development moving to maintenance – CSU writing all chapters • Consistency, format, research, cross checks • Links to service pathways • Revised and improved web presence – To include interactivity • Monitoring in primary care – see examples

  22. 22. What you want to know.. Based on questions received from ABPI North • 3 themes – Priorities for the group – Engagement with industry – Joint working with industry
  23. 23. Priorities for the group? • Clinical leadership hardwired • Full engagement – All NHS providers, commissioners – Bring in AQP and private providers • Public and patient views – Recruiting currently • Link up between Main group & subgroups – Much better understanding / alignment
  24. 24. Engagement • Ideas of areas the group are interested in engaging with industry - Different views! – CSU – commercial partnerships welcome – CCG Boards – 2 approaches • No free lunch • All we can get – we have no money! – CCG Meds Man leads – no industry money – ‘no free lunch’ approach • How does the group plan to engage? - How do they ensure they have worked with the right people? – Communicate, communicate, communicate! – New website - Interactive – Clearer processes for subgroups – WAS inconsistent
  25. 25. Engagement • Does the group want / plan to engage as a group or as individual CCGs? – As a group ideally – BUT via GMCSU or NYRDTC as appropriate. – Guidance approved – will be on website shortly to clarify • How should industry ensure we are included as an interested party – Communicate! – We need to gain a trusted relationshp!
  26. 26. Joint work • How does GMMMG plan to work with Industry? – Ethical framework for rebates – 2-3 on the stocks currently • CSU triaging for CCGs • Need to priortise due to capacity limitations • What sort of offering/ solutions / support is the group / GM CSU looking for from industry? – In for the long term – for better for worse! • Do they want a suite of flexible options or a blank sheet to do whatever is required? – Need to explore options on the table! – And push for more innovative ones!!
  27. 27. A thought for the future? (from the past) “If you have an apple and I have an apple and if we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” George Bernard Shaw
