Children and young people s health outcomes forum and strategy

Mortality in Childhood

UK compared to European 12


Children young people s health outcomes strategy why the need

Children & Young People’s Health Outcomes Strategy Why the need?

If UK healthcare was equivalent to best in Europe

  • 5 children /day would survive

  • 1600+ / year would not die

  • >100,000 life years saved each year

    Most of which would be as productive adults


Children and young people s health outcomes forum commission by sos

Children and Young People’s Health Outcomes Forum – Commission by SoS

  • In January 2012 SoS for Health established the Independent Children & Young People’s Health Outcomes Forum

  • 3 key outputs :

    • The health outcomes that matter most for children and young people

    • How well these are supported by the NHS and Public Health Outcomes Framework

    • How the different parts of the health system will contribute and work together in the delivery of these outcomes


  • Children and young people s health outcomes forum and strategy

    Children & Young People’s Health Outcomes Strategy Why the need?

    • 26% of deaths - “identifiable failure in the child’s direct care”

      43% of deaths – “potentially avoidable factors” (CEMACH 2008)

    • Half of children subsequently found to have meningococcal infection are sent home from the first primary care consultation

    • Diabetic control is poorer and deaths from DKA higher in UK

    • Approximately 75% of admissions of children with asthma could have been prevented with better primary care

    • Over a third of short stay admissions in infants are for minor illnesses that could have been managed in the community


    Children young people s health outcomes strategy why the need1

    Children & Young People’s Health Outcomes Strategy – Why the need?

    • Key indicators in the wrong direction:

      • Impact of deprivation; inequalities in outcomes

      • Obesity prevalence in Yr6 increasing

        2010/11 - 17.4% of girls and 20.6% of boys

      • Rising sexually transmitted infections eg chlamydia has increased by 25% over the past 10 yrs

      • Hospital admissions associated with diabetes, asthma or epilepsy among 11 – 19 yr olds has increased by 26% since 2002/03

      • NPSA - >10,000 medication errors/year

        • peaks in children under four

        • x10 errors

        • Gentamicin and opiates


    Children and young people s health outcomes forum and strategy

    Children & Young People’s Health Outcomes Strategy – Why the need?

    Unexplained variation

    • 3 fold variation in term babies admitted to neonatal units

    • 4 – 6 fold variation in children attending ED from equivalent general practices

    • 4 – 6 fold variation in admissions for bronchiolitis or asthma

    • 3 fold variation in tonsillectomy rates

    Nationally – 45% of GP trainees receive direct in-hospital paediatric experience

    8 fold variation in investment in community services;

    Children’s Community Nursing Teams patchy across England


    Nhs atlas of variation in healthcare for children young people

    NHS Atlas of Variation in Healthcare for Children & Young People

    The report highlights:

    • Need to reduce unwarranted variation to increase value and improve quality

    • Cheshire and Mersey position within national data

    • Variation within Cheshire and Merseyside


    Children young people s health outcomes forum some key messages from children young people

    Children & Young People’s Health Outcomes Forum – Some key messages from Children & Young People

    • Lack of join up around health, social care and education

    • Poor and delayed diagnosis of conditions impacting on outcomes

    • General Practice, the key and most frequent point of contact not meeting the needs of CYP

    • Outcomes need to take a whole family approach because the health and wellbeing of families (carers) directly impacts on CYP and affects their resilience

    • Ensure outcomes are included for different ages (life cycle)

    • Transition to adult services often very disjointed and planning needs to involve family


    Children young people s health outcomes forum more key messages from children young people

    Children & Young People’s Health Outcomes Forum– More key messages from Children & Young People

    • Examples:

      • Better access to child friendly information

      • Care by professionals who have had training in working with CYP

      • Care to be in environments which are appropriate to their age and needs

      • Appropriate and efficient system for transfer from children to adult services

      • CYP want to have a say and be listened to in decisions about their health and take a lead where able
