Public Private Partnership for replacing the national referral hospital

background
Background
  • As part of the Health Sector Reforms, the referral system in the health sector needed to be greatly improved to meet the clinical needs of the country
  • The current national referral hospital QEIII could no longer fulfill this function satisfactorily because of its derelict infrastructure
  • In 2002 Boston University, as part of the reforms agenda, was tasked by the MOHSW to critically look at QEII Hospital and come up with recommendations as to the way forward
  • The Boston University report Economic Study of the Referral Health Services in Lesotho: The Future of QEII Hospital recommended the construction of a new hospital at a new site as the only option that would make economic sense.
  • The New Referral Hospital would provide a higher level of service and quality
  • The benefits of the hospital would be felt throughout the health sector due to in country high quality of specialist care thus reducing the referrals to neighboring South Africa, and training of health workers and
  • A Public Private Partnership was the preferred route to the provision of the new referral hospital
how did we get here
How did we get here?
  • Urgent need for replacement of existing hospital, Queen II

Existing service unsatisfactory due to dilapidated building, over 50years old

- Less expensive to replace than repair

- Clinical service offered is of poor quality for an apex hospital

  • Public Private Partnership option taken by GOL in 2005

-The PPP partner will design, build, fully maintain and operate the new public hospital and 3 urban Filter Clinics for Government under an 18 year contract

-The PPP allows Government to shift operating risks of the hospital project to the PPP Partner

- PPP partner will bring operational experience in hospital management

current project funding
Current Project Funding
  • Sources of Funds
  • Private sector (banks, investors, project company)
    • Providing 20% of capital costs
  • Multilateral
  • Global Partnership for Output-Based Aid (GPOBA)
  • Grant of M43.75m /$6.25m, payable over first five years of project, to augment the Unitary Payment. Administered by World Bank
  • Partial Risk Guarantee (PRG) has been requested from the World Bank by Government – this provides the operator with partial coverage (at their expense) should Government fail to make the unitary payment
  • Donors
  • IFC and Donor trust funds have supported technical consultants
  • Government
    • Providing 80% of capital costs, saving large debt service costs and significantly improving project risk profile
current budget for qeii hospital
Current budget for QEII Hospital
  • The budget for QEII hospital in 2007/08 was137 million Maloti

This included the Filter Clinics

  • This budget has been tripled over the past 3 years but with no commensurate increase of service levels. In fact services are decreasing
  • Government is spending as much to operate QEII today as it will spend for the new hospital which will have a higher level of service and quality
how to avoid the same problems in a new building
How to Avoid the Same Problems in a New Building?
  • Overcrowding with patients needing lower level care

- Emphasize primary care and routine outpatient services at the filter clinics

- Fully functioning filter clinics

- Triage – patient management on entry at clinics and hospital

    • Strong referral policy
  • Equipment and Supplies
    • Servicing, supply and maintenance contracts
  • Human Resources / Staffing

Staff complaints to be addressed include

– lack of supplies, equipment, and training

- low salaries

- PPP Partner is contractually required to have full staffing

- Partner prepared to provide better working conditions

how will the new hospital affect the health sector
How will the New Hospital Affect the Health Sector?
  • Higher level of medical services at New Hospital
  • Greater access to services – more patients can be seen
  • Better referral resource for district hospitals
  • New Hospital will serve as a training resource for the health sector
  • Fewer referrals expected to South Africa over time
  • Fits in Government’s affordability envelope
other concerns
Other Concerns
  • Cost of public services will remain the same – cost to public patients does not increase
  • Government is not reducing the Ministry’s budget to pay for the new hospital
  • WB to provide support to Government to develop capacity for contract management
  • Other benefits to Basotho from the project include Local Economic Empowerment (LEE)
  • Recruitment should minimize disruption to staffing in the district hospitals and elsewhere
  • Existing staff at Queen II will be offered the choice of transferring to other Government facilities and transferring to the private operator
