The Kent Health Commission in Dover. Paul Carter Leader of Kent County Council. Kent Health Commission. As health and social care commissioners ,
Leader of Kent County Council
As health and social care commissioners,
to develop a visionary model that demonstrates how the Government’s health and care reform agenda can empower GPs and commissioners to deliver better quality care, improve health outcomes and improve patient experience through working with GPs in Dover district as a pilot area.
General optimism that the system can be improved, but views that…
Are clinically driven ambitions being lost in managerial process?
How do we work together to deliver
“a different shaped sponge”!
(ie real change)
Will CCGs have a ‘real’ choice?
Does the process offer a short-term agreement
for CCGs or a long- term tie in?
What could the new world look like?
Better patient care - Better patient outcomes
“The week before last, I had over 30 emails from concerned CCG leaders. Each told its own story; stories of commissioning support being imposed, of staff being appointed without consultation and of crucial meetings being arranged with less than twelve hours' notice.
if we really want a locally sensitive NHS then, in future, there must be no “top”. No “bottom”. Just centre and frontline. Both looking out to our patients rather than simply feeding the system. It must not only be like that it must feel like that.
I do believe that the centre now genuinely wants to devolve power and responsibility.”
