SCIs – origins

Greater citizen choice/local jobs

Commissioning Pathway

Strategic Commissioning Intentions

Scis why they are important
SCIs – why they are important

  • Will deliver improved outcomes for citizens at reduced cost and drive a shift towards greater investment in prevention

  • Drive market development, early intervention, citizen engagement, commissioning, contracting, procurement activity

  • Influence what VCS and providers need to be preparing for

  • Help embed commissioning framework throughout the city

Defining scis
Defining SCIs

  • Starting point headline outcomes for adults & children in Nottingham Plan, CYPP and emerging Vulnerable Adults Plan

  • “Sub-outcomes” defined for each to give a more specific focus – then assessed against four key criteria (“demand factors” [need and finance], links to priorities, quality of outcome, council influence)

  • Year 1 about improving outcomes which relate to Children, Families and Adults where Council has a strong degree of influence on outcome. Plan for Year 2 is to focus on wider set of city priorities

Emerging yr 1 sci priorities
Emerging “yr 1” SCI priorities

  • Based on assessments following priorities identified:

    • More effective and sustainable approach to whole-life disability

    • Vulnerable older citizens enabled to live independently in their own homes

    • People with learning disabilities supported more effectively and sustainably, and better enabled to live independently in the community

    • Improving the quality of life and independence of citizens with poor mental health

    • Effective support for school-age children in our care 

  • First two reviews (whole-life disability & older citizens living independently) are commencing now

Vulnerable adults plan vap
Vulnerable Adults Plan (VAP)

  • First ever comprehensive plan to meet needs of growing number ofvulnerable adults in the city

  • Draft plan built up from extensive range of existing knowledge and to be presented to Council Executive early July

  • It will need to be subject to extensive consultation and joint work including VCS to shape it further, and vitally get ownership for way forward

  • It does however :

    • set out key action strands and underpinning principles

    • help inform priorities over the short-term: and:

    • positions connection with other plans and how we need to work in future with partners and with citizens
