So what’s different? • More freedom to act • Different relationship with commissioners • Broader roles • More opportunities to work with staff from across the Society • Sense of ownership • If things don‟t work we are empowered to change them
Key Preceptors for Change • SHMI • Keogh Review • „Healthy Lives Healthy Futures‟ • 7 day services • We are all „not for personal profit‟ • Ultimately there is a lot less money available • „Why are there 6 separate providers?.......... • The status quo isn‟t an option because it isn‟t sustainable
“The role of the hospital is to support the community not the other way round”
Winter incentive scheme • 5 stretch targets: • 4 Hour A&E waits 95% • Limit Delayed Transfers of Care • increase the utilisation of ambulatory Care • To maximise intermediate tier beds /reduce hospital beds compared to the winter 2012/2013 • Maintain patient satisfaction
Achieving this through….. • GP in the front of A&E 7/7 9.00am – 5.00pm • Social workers in at the weekend • Home care provider available 24/7 • 16 seater bus and driver available to all • Home equipment store open at weekend • Rapid response nurses in A&E and on wards • Commissioning 12 „step up‟ beds in high quality care homes locally

Benefits • Increased provider autonomy • Better for customers • Easier to implement new pathways • Potential economies of scale • Consistent messages • Strength in numbers • Increased understanding and trust
Risks • Perceived loss of identity • Perceived risk to individuals roles • Accusation of monopoly • Concentration on building partnerships rather than effective delivery
Key Questions…. • Do we really trust each other? • What is the priority - the community or the company? • What will it cost? • Would we transfer any staff? • Would we share senior posts?
A person is the most important person in our community. They are not an interruption to our work, they are the purpose of it. They are not an outsider in our system, they is a part of it. We are not doing a favour by serving them, they are doing us a favour by giving us an opportunity to do so. Mahatma Gandhi •
