  • …..so we have a few cross-cultural issues to address before we can get this to work
  • Assumes neat distinction between primary, secondary and tertiary care whereas it’s all rather messy
a few myths to dispel
A few myths to dispel
  • Hospitals and their doctors want to keep patients in
  • GPs want to keep patients out of hospital
  • Patients necessarily want to be out of hospital
a few more myths to dispel
A few more myths to dispel
  • Care is cheaper out of hospital
  • Stripping out x% of activity will allow removal of x% of income without collapsing emergency rotas and elective work (particularly with EWTD)
  • FTs are predatory beasts seeking to admit patients and code them up to maximise profit, hence bankrupting PCTs/PBCs

  • Our trust runs
    • Paediatric hospital-at-home

  • PCT suggests £10m activity out
  • We need to increase provision clinically and financially
  • Do we have to stay in hospital or should we have real joint commissioning and provision?
  • In whose interests is it to reduce hospital attendance?
  • How can PCTs or PBCs commission and provide – hospital doctors do not understand this

  • Finnamore (local) work
    • AHA / A&E and sexual health have biggest potential impact
    • Less so for minor procedures, ENT, gynaecology, cardiology, diabetes, COPD.

  • For every change proposed, the principle question must be ‘how will this make it better for the patient, and where is the evidence to support that?’
  • If we try to get it right for patients (individually and as groups) we have an outside chance of making the system work
  • If we just argue about money, structures, processes we almost certainly won’t
  • This will be difficult with present commissioning conflicts of interest
  • We would describe ourselves as a community hospital
