Integration of Adult Health and Social Care


What is the problem we are trying to solve

What is the problem we are trying to solve?

  • Too much variability of health and social care in different parts of Scotland, particularly for older people.

  • No incentive to help get people out of hospital quickly and back into a homely setting.

  • Much easier to get an older person admitted to hospital than to arrange services that would keep them at home.

Projected Demand for Health and Social Care, All Ages, 2008/09 prices.


Vision

Vision

  • Older people are supported to live well at home or in the community for as much time as they can

  • They have a positive experience of health and social care when they need it


Framework for improvement

Framework for improvement

  • Consistency of approach across Scotland;

  • Applies in every council and health board area;

  • Statutory underpinning;

  • Integrated budget to deliver some acute, community and social care services;

  • Someone clearly accountable for delivering agreed outcomes;

  • Professionally led by clinicians and social workers;

  • Simplifies rather than complicates existing bodies and structures; and

  • Wherever possible, it should be achieved with minimal disruption to staff and services.


What does the evidence tell us

What does the evidence tell us?

  • Planning for populations, not delivery structures

  • Pooling resources – money and people

  • Embedding GPs, other clinicians and care professionals in the processes of service planning, investment and provision

  • Very strong local leadership


Principles of reform

Principles of reform

  • Nationally agreed outcomes across health and social care, focussing in the first instance on older people’s services

  • Joint accountability via the Chief Executives of the Health Board and Local Authority to Ministers, Council Leaders and the public for delivery of those outcomes

  • Integrated budgets

  • Strong clinical and professional leadership, and engagement of the third sector, in commissioning and planning of services

Framework for integration – slide 2

  • CHP committees will be taken off the statute book and replaced by Health and Social Care Partnerships – joint and equal responsibility of the NHS and Local Authority

  • Jointly appointed senior accountable officer will report to the Chief Executives of the NHS and Local Authority

  • Annual accountability meetings will enable accountability to Ministers and Leaders


Integration of adult health and social care

Framework for integration – slide 3

  • Locality service planning groups will strengthen the role of clinicians and social care professionals

  • Fewer resources will in future be directed towards institutional care and more resources will be directed towards community provision


Integration of adult health and social care

Next steps

  • Formal consultation

  • Detailed work now underway to consider practicalities:

    • Outcomes

    • Joint governance and accountability

    • Integrated financial management

    • Impact on other areas of service

    • Workforce and HR issues

    • Locality planning

    • Improving commissioning skills

    • Requirements for OD and leadership development work
