National and regional projects in context

National and Regional Projects in Context

2002-2005

22 National Projects& £80m spent, 9 Regional Partnerships, c40 Sub regions, plus the thematic Partnerships with a wide range of ODPM and locally funded programmes.

The outcomes is a wealth of products, a small number of which are software (16), a bout 200 are about methodology and around 850 are knowledge products. These are available via ‘PROP’ & the NWeGG products catalogue, and there is a drive to combine product databases

There is an issue that the products tend to be individual and need to be accessible to practitioners and those that can affect change, they need to be seen in context.

The future of National Projects – Local Authority led following the ROADS “Safe homes” programme.

Knowsley s approach to the roads programme

Knowsley’s approach to the ROADS Programme

  • We recognised that the ‘interested parties’ were finding e-government

  • and National Projects too nebulous and too techy in their language.

  • We also were confused by overlaps and competing initiatives, We too had

  • problems in translating the individual and sometime competing products into

  • a meaningful business case, relevant to Knowsley’s circumstances.

  • We were particularly concerned at the lack of cross-agency understanding,

  • and specifically the funding / cost of such programmes.

  • I was concerned that Children’s Agenda was in the “too-hard box”, and

  • that against the size of the task, that developments were slow to initialise

  • But at the same time we were hearing about lots of really good work

  • happening – perhaps too much!, and some anxieties reached as far as

  • Hansard!.

  • So I volunteered to try and bring together, rationalise the respective strands, products and discussion on Children’s Services, to write them up and make the findings available with some of the how-to products included

  • Group 1 - Policies Stakeholders and Agencies

  • Who appears to be engaged / or not

  • What are the key dates – events

  • What is agency / practitioner restricted and unrestricted data

  • What are the key issues with the role of the lead practitioner

  • Is notification (IONM) as far as we will ever get based on current

  • organisations

First Steps: Break-out Feedback – Group 1

Group 1 - Policies Stakeholders, Initiatives and Agencies

Most of the discussion centred on the role of the Lead Practitioner, as the leading edge of the stakeholder groups concerned.

Some organisations use the term Lead Practitioner and Some Lead Professional, and it was felt useful to standardise.

Should the lead practitioner be defined by the stakeholders, or by the family / child as their chosen, most trusted or most available contact.

Given the potential range of contact/scenarios for the lead, they need to be CRB checked, this would have to include third sector (voluntary organisations).

  • Group 2 - Cost, Affordability, Performance & Change Management

  • Who is paying for the integration

  • Should there be a redistribution of costs

  • What is the term – is short term 1 year or 5 years

  • What is the balance of performance indicators from BV to QoL

  • Is there a single ICS programme in your Authority

  • What Communication is taking place

Group 2 - Cost, Affordability, Performance and Change Management

There are potentially different approaches to defining the scope of Children’s Services, and how to address the CSD Portfolio, with moveable Boundaries between Adult and Children’s services. So far there may have been an apportioning existing resources and some pressure on accommodation budgets, but this seems to be shuffling the resources and there seems to be much less clarity over capital for systems and change.

There was a feeling that there was an emerging link to the efficiency agenda, but that due to the reapportionment of people, their net capacity being focused on children’s services, perhaps meant that (without additional resources) that their efforts towards the efficiency agenda might be of a lower priority.

It was felt that the source of new capital was unclear and that it might be attached to bidding, with potentially annual cycles if missed. But it was also strongly felt that whilst there is an IT element that the programme is very much more about the softer issues in transformation change, partnership and culture development.

When considering that the programme may cause a net efficiency, there were some question as to whether all of these can all be claimed from the implementation of integrated services, or whether some of these were about changed business practice (ie implementing EDM) that may have occurred separately, or as part of this programme. Some questions over what might be expressed in the Annual Efficiency Statement.

Group 2 - Cost, Affordability, Performance and Change Management

In terms of savings, it was recognised that the LA was bearing the brunt of the costs and therefore the % of savings was small in comparison to the spend on services (sub 1%). It was questioned as to whether the saving should be passed back up the line from NHS / Police and over what period the changes should be monitored / analysed.

It was further questioned as to what period of time the results were expected in – would politicians commit to a cause and effect that was greater than 4 years

There were some concerns over KPI(s) and a fairly universal view that the organisations were very much defined by the impact in PIs, but also some great ideas about impact assessment, reduced waiting lists. It was also recognised that savings and PIs may be affected by latent demand.

Finally it was considered essential to get the attention of the Chief Execs and Finance Directors to lead this agenda as their appeared to be Weak Strategic (from the centre) Leadership which was leaving too many unknowns

  • Group 3 – Technologies and Information Management

  • CRM or not to CRM

  • Data Matching

  • Will the culture accept automated referrals based on flags of concern

  • Is the NHS Code of Connection a necessity -

More than ‘just’ IT

IT pushing forwards, but who should be leading ?

But, we don’t know what tools there are - yet

Especially with regard to data leadership

Data

Sharing

First Steps: Break-out Feedback – Group 3 (1 of 6)

Group 3 - Technologies and information management

A popular group, but recognising that this is a business led issue and that technologies need to create the capacity;


First steps break out feedback group 3 2 of 6

Council could hold an index, but CRM but not necessarily as a core ICS delivery System

There are many other systems

CRM

Data matching is really the issue, esp for the children most at risk

Lot of local (people) knowledge used now,.

A resource not to be ignored

Needs top down – driving from Central Gov

Info Sharing Toolkit exists, but no standard

Becomes v hard with the large no of agencies

Joined up working

Working, multi-agency, mixing cultures

Local eGov Standards Body – moving Slowly

People happy to share data if the benefits are clear (SEU) Point

DfES

National Agreement to govern index being mooted

Who’s data is it ?

Raises question over who chooses to

Legal ,

National

Act?

More likely to be local than national

Should there be an opt-out?

Single Child Index

But more about info sharing

Need to address suspicions over why data is being held and what the benefit is

Access to local patient record ?

Difficult to balance with access to social care record Use ?

Use ?

Tracing service

NHS

Code of Connection

Very hard to meet requirements, and is expensive

Its going to get harder and more complex as more people become involved in delivering children’s service

Do you split adult and children’s systems

If it is one system then this helps the family view

Need to get away from paper based filing

But if one, this needs to manage any internal conflicts between CSD / Education and Social Services
